It may interest you to know that not everyone agrees with you, me and Kate. There are those who, in fact, dislike our having made this website at all. This may come as a shock to you. From the very beginning, I hoped that someone, somewhere, might become so incensed about our having made this website that they would go out and buy IHateIHateCrocsDotCom. And then, I thought, we could have the owners of that site over for a diplomatic dinner party and we could laugh and laugh. Unfortunately, at time of writing, no one has purchased IHateIHateCrocsDotCom. But, a blogger called DCfosheezy has written all about how much he dislikes us hating Crocs at his blog IHateYouHatersDotBlogspotDotCom:
I HATE "I HATE CROCS.COM" THESE GOTH-ISH NOVA SCOTIANS IN BETWEEN THEIR WEBSITE AND YOUTUBE/FACEBOOK BLASPHEMY... SEEM TO JUST TRY TO LOWBLOW THIS COMPANY, HEY RETARDS, THE CROSLITE MATERIAL (WHICH IS NOT RUBBER; STOP CALLING IT RUBBER, IT AINT, AND ITS GOT NO LATEX) WAS ORIGINALLY CREATED AND PRODUCED IN CANADA. SO WHATEVER, IN THE END WE CAN BLAME ANY MISHAPS ON THE CANADIANS... THEY STARTED IT.
ESCALATOR ACCIDENTS ARE TRAGIC, BUT CROCS DO NOT INCREASE THIS RISK IN ANY WAY. IN FACT THEM NOT HAVING LONG LOOSE LACES MAKES THEM 10 TIMES FUCKING SAFER THAN THE SKATE SHOES I USUALLY WEAR IN THE MALL. ALSO, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO," HOLD THE HANDRAIL AND WATCH YOUR STEP." JUST TEACHING PEOPLE THAT WOULD ENSURE SAFETY. THESE INCIDENTS ARE MOST OFTEN DO TO REALLY PISS POOR SHITTY MAINTENANCE OF ESCALATORS AND WALKING SIDEWALKS. BLAME THE LAZY MECHANICS AND THE MALLS THAT DONT GIVE A DAMN TO PAY MONEY TO REGULAR MAINTAIN THEIR PROPERTY. ALSO, TAKE THE DAMN STAIRS OR ELEVATOR EVERY NOW AND THEN. IHATECROCS.COM IS JUST ANOTHER LAME WEBSITE STARTED BY A COUPLE OF "HOT TOPIC" SHOPPERS WHO RATHER WEAR KNEE-HIGH 20 BUCKLE BOOTS FOR THE PRICE OF A PAIR OF AIR JORDANS, THAN RATHER BE COOL AND OR COMFORTABLE. IF SHOPKEEPERS AND MINIMUM WAGE MALL SECURITY GUARDS WANT TO TRY TO WARN SHOPPERS AND POST SHIT SAYING HOW DANGEROUS CROCS ARE, YOU'RE DUMB.
CROCS MAKES MILLIONS AND WILL CONTINUE TO FOREVER AND EVER. NOT A FAD YOU FAGS. SO JUST POP YOUR CHEAP PRESCIPTION CANADIAN DRUGS AND SHUT UP ALREADY.
We were, in fact, aware that Crocslite was originally created and produced in Canada. And we are Canadian. I suppose DCfosheezy's argument is that Kate and I agree with everything that is created and produced in our fair country. I, personally, do not agree with maple syrup. I find it altogether too sugary and syrupy. Also, I really don't like that our DVD cases have all the text in both English and French. I think DVD covers are cluttered enough as it is without having to cram both languages on. They should have both options available. I think that would be better. And we should probably take the critic's comments off the cover, too. And I hate how sometimes books that have won award have a note saying 'Winner of the whatever award' in a circle that looks like a sticker, but is in fact printed right on the cover and cannot be peeled off. That just ruins a perfectly good book. I don't even remember what I was talking about anymore.
Oh yes, DCfosheezy. What a charming name, as well. I object to the 'goth-ish' comment, as neither Kate nor I are 'goth-ish'. I'm not exactly sure where this got started.
We don't tend to comment on the whole escalator debacle, though we occasionally post the emails we get about it simply because we get so many. We steer away from mentioning it because it is not funny. It is horrifying. Especially the pictures.
Truthfully, I don't much feel like going through and countering every allegation our friend made (not to mention the amount of time it would take to parse each woefully grammatically incorrect sentence), but I do feel I should say that I've never set foot inside a 'Hot Topic', nor am I exactly sure what 'Hot Topic' is. I think it is a clothing store.
DCfosheezy's blog, I Hate You Haters Dot Blogspot Dot Com, so far only features the sole entry I've reposted here. It is an honour.
