A word "replacement" for the WF for 2011?

44 replies
Hey Warriors!

As some of you know, the Warrior Forum has a built-in function that Allen can use to replace one word with another.

For example, if you type in "b-l-a-c-k- -h-a-t" it will come out as BlueFart.

So, with that in mind, I would like to humbly suggest a replacement for 2011...

How about...

Replacing "dead" with "big, happy circus"?

That way when somebody starts a post asking "Is article marketing dead?" it will show up as "Is article marketing a big, happy circus?"

Ok, it may never happen, but a guy can have a dream for the new year, can't he?

Any other suggestions?

All the best,
Michael

    Oh man, I can see some hilarious possibilities for this, especially if the substitutions aren't publicized.
    "guru" can be replaced by "silly aardvark"
    "Ezinearticles" can be replaced by "The Land that Time Forgot"

    hmmm...

      Hi Gail,

      Actually, there was a short time when if you typed in "guru" it would be posted as "goober". But I like your suggestion, too.

    I would love to see something like that. It's kind of annoying seeing all the "this is dead" titles around here.

    How about just happy? So that way, it will come out as "is internet marketing happy?"

      Because nothing is really dead. It would give the complete opposite effect of what the poster intended, but it'd be much closer to the truth.

      Not only that, it would just sound so much more positive and maybe make a few people smile...for a while at least.

        But, Internet marketing in 2011 is big, happy circus, big, happy circus, big, happy circus for sure. It's big, happy circuser than a doornail. I'd stay away from this big, happy circus market.

    ROFL - I'd love to see that. In the spirit of your clever post...

    Replacing "spammer" with "big cuddly love monkey" might produce some interesting results too.

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

        Aren't you aware that list building died while it was sleeping last night?

        Though the burial ceremony is yet to be announced by the family.

        Left to mourn it are all the list builders in warrior forum.

      I think we should replace guru with Steven Wagenheim.

      People will think twice before using that word knowing that they'll be
      slamming a forum member (rule # 1)

      Can you imagine it?

      "Are the Steven Wagenheims screwing the newbies?"

    Well thanks a bundle

    I'm going to lose sleep working out all the replacement phrases that would be funny. I'm in search of the best already.

    I just can't think of one funnier than Mr W's I'll sleep on it.

    1st attempt - What about replacing "No Fluff" With "Complete Balderdash"

      A word "replacement" for the WF for 2011?
      Hmm...

      Look at what I got from my out-of-the-box thinking:

      If some folks, especially the newcomers, use the Search function of this forum to search for "Article Marketing Is Dead" and the result they see is "Article Marketing Has Resurrected and It Could Be sitting Next to You"

      Some of them that are chicken-hearted will leave their computer and run for their dear lives.

      Then those that are cowards will come here to start a thread, "Help! My PC Has Been Attacked by a Search Redirect Virus..." Guess what?

      I will make more affiliate sales yet I will not be happy with whoever misled those folks because they will still ask for refunds. My loss.

      But do it because it will be fun. BTW, I like fun as much as Bill Platt and Caliban do.

    Okay, let's change the word "guru" to "thread hijacker".

    Let's also change the "moderators" to "ninjas".

    Finally, change the word "senior warrior member" to "grandpa maybe grandma"

    And change "spammers" to "assylum seekers".

    I figure that the first happens often enough that by sheer volume, people may start to believe the myth as fact.

      Why not? After all, have you forgotten that nonsense doesn't make any sense if there's no "sense" in it? Have you also forgotten that when many people start spreading a rumor the rumor graduates from being a rumor to becoming a story?
