tamtampamela got us! D’oh!

The video in yesterday’s post, Do you need more evidence that Marx was right about religion? was apparently not for real. The girl in the video makes “troll videos.” (source)

She got us.

She got us good.

180. Well played tamtampamela, well played!

    Tamtampamela’s not new to the internet, and knows quite well that when you get in a fight with people online, they say the most hateful things. “Die in a fire” and such statements are a long way from someone actually showing up at your door with a gas can, and I think it’s hilarious that she went so far out of her way to emotionally manipulate people for a year and a half with her ‘fun’, and in one night was ‘freaked out’ when the tables were turned on her.

    It says a lot about tamtampamela as a person, and how she sees other people, that she thought it was okay to manipulate people, that it was ok to have fun at the expense of the survivors and those still in danger in Japan, and that it’s okay to shout fire in a crowded theater …because people are responsible for their own sense of panic, right? I think she finally got a clue about how this was going to impact her long-term, and that unless she wanted to work on Madison Ave. as an ad exec for the rest of her adult life (IE: Where else could someone that soulless, conniving, manipulative and uncaring about others actually get a job), she’d need to put the fire out as quickly as she could.

    I watched the posts scrolling past as people found out about the site. I have to say what I saw was a lot of anger. But why were people so angry? That’s the big question nobody seems to be addressing, or see as a major point in this fiasco. People were angry because she was belittling the pain of others, whether as a religious nut or a generic trolling internet nut. What I saw was a lot of people slapping down a bully. I agree people could have been a little more polite about expressing that anger, but then again, anger isn’t really an unexpected response to her first video (I’m happy God killed people) or her second video (I had fun making fun of people I don’t agree with, and messing with the minds of innocent bystanders). Additionally, she admitted her reason for making the videos was to ‘piss people off’, so I am left wondering why she was so surprised when that’s what she accomplished, and why she was so surprised when that very real anger was, well, angry. Perhaps she thought she could continue to manipulate people’s responses like trained poodles. “Ok be angry now! Good puppy! Now show me angry barking only! No peeing on the carpet!”

    The intellectual elitism in her actions is also interesting to notice, as evidenced in her flippant and unapologetic attitude toward the entire series of events. She thinks she’s won something, she’s somehow smarter than the rest of us, because she managed to pull off this hoax. All she’s really accomplished is providing a target for a lot of people so heartsick over the images coming out of Japan who feel powerless to help other than throwing money at it a chance to vent some frustration, and again, slap down a bully. Tamtam 0, general public 1/2. I’m giving the general public half creds for being so willing to take down a sociopath (so·ci·o·path – noun . A person, as a psychopathic personality, whose behavior is antisocial and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience). I only wish more people had been willing to do the same in Germany about 75 or so years ago, so one one level at least there’s a ‘good’ side to all of this.

    Given that her video got a half a million views, she’s really lucky that, through her own stupidity, all she got was a few dozen pizzas. (I saw a comment or two about people who thought it would be funny to send her a turd in the mail, so that may still happen. Time will tell, I guess.)

    All this being said, I do really hope she can sort it all out, develop a bit of humility and compassion for others, and make amends in some way. She’s obviously bright most of the time, and could still make something positive out of all of this.

    Too bad she didn’t think past the no-hearted attempt to monetize for her own gain, and instead set the videos up to donate to the people of Japan. Not that I am condoning the videos by saying it’s ok to raise money for good by creating and maintaining a tornado of hatred, but once it had happened and couldn’t be undone, she could have really made a difference in another person’s life.
