 Walter Shawlee 3.0

 Author:  Topic:  Posted:

The absolute worst student "journalist" ever. Also, I think he might be a hacker/terrorist.
So, usually my university's newspaper isn't too horrible. But this one guy, Walter Shawlee, writes the absolute worst articles ever. Most of the time they're simply boring or stupid, but his last two have been offensively atrocious. I guess the first is supposed to be some kind of social commentary, and the second in his explanation for the first. Here's the links:

  • Chicks and Lips
  • Way of the Geek

    What do you guys think about them?

    He's a pitiful humorless wanker with nothing important to say. He also can't write. But, he thinks he can write and that he is insightful.

    He is also trying to rationalize his hacker guilt by whitewashing his illegal Lenixist lifestyle.

    I also doubt the power of his skillz and his kung fu. He's a pretentious wannabe.

    Where's a good Freudian when you need one?

    exactly how I feel about this stuff.

    Isn't it bad form to use exclamation points when you are writing a 'serious' work? Well, this is like using five in a row. After a sentence in all caps.

    I'd like to shake this guys hand, I'm just not sure if I could hold it up or not.

    What the hell is up with that last paragraph in Chicks and Lips? Police came by to collect the body? Woo. Okay. This guy needs to get out more. Actually, these articles reminded me a lot of this comment... horribly horribly misguided.

    Well, he has problems. (none / 0) (#7)

    Hence the crazy. The way that first article devolved was almost amusing actually. And yeah, the end was just bizarre. Like I said above, I guess it was supposed to be some kind of hard-hitting social commentary on the evils of popularity or some such garbage. And that link was great. Thanks for sharing the pain, sir/ma'am.

    Hes lashing out at the people who hurt him. Its simple really. Maybe he wants to be a trendy person... maybe he wants to just be left alone. And damn whats with the hacker comments? Why do you think anyone who knows a little more about computers then you is a hacker and must get capital punishment! Cool it... He talking about what any person who's been a social outcast knows. I must be like you or I die, its not a new concept, its happens to alot. I said fuck'em went to school with out preps. I guess he had it hard, I don't deal with that shit anymore anyone who pays all their attention to someones looks, their already dead inside.

    Or maybe he's just a pitiful, spiteful little fuck.

    You can never know what its like for us insiders. You cannot understand how the power of the computer turns a persons mind into a razor sharp tool of observation and analysis. Come back when you are ready, young padawan.

    Are you completely fucking unaware of sarcasm? Here's a hot tip, champ - when he said he was a hacker/terrorist, there was a slight possibility of him being not entirely literal.
