Thanks ABC. We Can See You're Very Hip and Modern and Viral and All That. You Can Stop Now.

I've now been friended by dirtysexyabc which is, I'm assuming, the official livejournal of abc's Dirty Sexy Money. This clearly is more appealing than being friended by lifeonmarsabc which is about the horrific, pointless and horrifically pointless American conversion of a brilliant program. However whatever misgivings I had about lifeonmarsabc randomly going around friending people because they'd written about life on mars I hold to be true with dirtysexyabc. Even though I do love the show and am happy to be friended ABC has to realise that friending everyone who mentions your show is not the way to do things. I say we stand up for ourselves and don't let ABC walk all over us.
As I see it there are several ways we can exert our dominance over ABC. We can punch one of their employees in the nose, thus establishing a physical dominance. We can go on strike, thus accomplishing whatever the hell it is that going on strike is supposed to achieve. We could email them and let them know that this kind of viral marketing isn't really a good idea and ask them to stop, thus putting across our point in a clear, concise, sensible and peaceful way. Or we could wage an all out war against them. Storm their buildings. Attack their employees in the street. Break TVs which currently have ABC on. Put landmines in their slippers. This is war. This is a rebellion. Too long have we been pushed around by oversized bureaucratic TV companies. It's time to stand up to them and let them know that we won't be pushed around any longer. That despite their status as one of the major world powers we are stronger than they are because we have love and respect for our fellow man. Because we have freedom and hope and the will to stand up for what is right. Because though they may take our sanity and our pants and invade our livejournals they will never take our spirit. Our righteous indignation. And they can never take our freedom!

Or maybe I'm overreacting. I'm not sure.
