    even if i don't fit the criteria i deserve a chance:(
    If the chance is granted here is my reason:

    I can relate to the site even if i haven't seen it yet (still loading), because I'm temporally running on dial up (DONT ASK WHY!) and the way things are loading now makes me fell like the site loads at speed of light on your computer.

    And i need to learn photoshop so i can give this kid website a make over for free: http://www.2atoms.com/comedy/worstoftheweb/blount.htm (I'm sorry kid! help is coming soon.) maybe then you can show girls your website ;)

    I've always wanted to buy something just to throw it away. So if you would give it to me I could fulfill a lifelong fantasy.

    Personally I think those who do not read the minimums needed and still try to bypass them deserve red, but that's just me ;)

    Maybe an update of the terms is in order:

    1) You have 500+ posts.
    2) You have at least 6 months membership here.
    3) Give Colleen a good reason why you would even WANT a POS site.
    4) Make Colleen smile with your reason.

    Hello Colleen,

    I think i should have the website becuase:

    I love people. I like to help humanity.

    I like to give charity to people.

    I like Bush and his family and the democrary they are spreading.

    I like to eat cereal in the morning, the same one that you eat.

    I like to read on my spare time.

    I support the war in iraq, just like you.

    I have the same color shoes that you have.

    You like M&M's and so do i.

    Im a really nice person.

    I chew bubble gum.

    Just a note I am sticking to my rules, for reasons. I'd rather have some knowledge of the person who will own my POS site, I also like those responses with humor but who will also maintain what's there at least for awhile, and if it's a POS for them, do as they please, this isn't a requirement, just something I noticed as I read replies. Since I am giving it as the site it is, script and content, it would be better if it remained that way or some version of what it is at least. I could easily dispose of it myself, I wasn't giving it to be disposed, I could just direct it to my own sites. :)

    O.K. I have so many reasons, but I was able to carve them down to the top 10 reasons I would like/or why you should give me your POS site!



    10. Because I don't know how to set up a SQL database, so I won't even be able to use it.

    9. Because I have a crappy web host with 85% down time, so no one will have to see the site anyway.

    8. Because I will likly get a red rep from that one guy, for not having 500+ posts.

    7. Because I don't have a NameCheap.com account, but I probably should. This will motivate me.

    6. Because everyone thinks my aviator is a picture of me...But it is the Dalai Lama's--I am a goofy looking white guy!

    5. Because I don't own photoshop, and I make graphics in paint.

    4. Because I have suffered a lot from women in my life, and this is a chance to change my opinion for the whole female gender.

    3. Because I just got my first link to my latest domain with the anchor text "goofy looking white guy"

    2. Because your country won't let me in to visit because I have a DWI conviction.


    And the #1 reason you should give this to me is:

    1. Because this is my best/oldest/most profitable website is http://www.cardcritic.com . Can you get more retro? It is done in frames...Google can't even find all the pages and it is almost 4 years old!

    There is a very good reason why I should, and why I would want to take over a POS site. I have no idea what a POS site is. Is it short for Phot-O-Shop?

    From your frustration, I can see it needs someone who has the time to give it a nudge in the right direction. And, my marketing skills are beyond reproach. No one is as good as I am at taking something that is going somewhere, nowhere. Or something that is going nowhere some other place . . . just . . . not . . . here.

    Being Canadian, as you are, I have a strong sense of my place in the long history of the world. My family goes back generations, maybe one. Therefore, I am similarly attracted to the notion of websites named "retro". Who wouldn't be! Just look at my sites. One -- STAT -- is so with it it has not needed a design makeover since 1999. And you can tell!

    The background coding and your truly impressive css is not an issue for me. Sites that freeze while loading, just remind me of home -- Winterpeg.

    Lastly, I have tried many times to get people to just give me sites they plan on closing. For some reason they have never seen the logic of my proposal. Until, it seems, today.

    I don't have 6 months I don't think but I was just going to write

    You should give me your POS site because I too am a POSS (that's POS site) hater. I will happily rip this site down one crappy function at a time until it's left in a pile of useless ASCII and <?php "echo"s. It's about time people like us got our revence on the tardcode handed over by these so called programmers. You'll feel much better when you hit the URL and find remnants of what once was instead of a shiny new site to take this POS sites place. Let's destroy it, bury it, and you can move on instead of resenting the POS that wasted countless hours of your time.

    Cheers

    I'm really neat
    I code and design
    I fix websites
    And make them shine

    I have less posts
    Than what you require
    But I've been here
    For awhile

    If you give me your site
    I'll break out my tools
    I'll buff it and shine it
    And break all the rules

    As night is night
    As day is day
    I'll send a smile
    On your way

    For when you see
    Your site that day
    You'll say "Damn, now
    why did I give that away?"

    This is lame
    Can't even be funny
    But it isn't as bad
    As Save Toby, the bunny

    On second though
    Just keep the site
    I just wanted to
    make up a stupid rhythm.
    Maybe next time??

    I have too many projects
    And I do not need another
    Give it to someone who deserves it
    Give it to one of my Digital Point brothers

    If you think my poem's lame
    Well, it was darn sure was meant to be
    Just don't infraction my poor little post
    Or send any warnings to me

    Wrong you just made one;)

    I am interested. Why? Well I am a Photoshop Guru. I love designing and I think I cna make something out of it. I recently acquired another photoshop domain and plan on doing alot with them.

    I'm not going to beg for it but if you want to give it away I sure will take it and will do something with it.
