Guess what happens when you Google "Julie Moult" now
Couldn't resist it, but wtf is *this* all about ?!
A hapless Daily Mail hack's failure to understand Googlebombing has led to her becoming victim of her own twisted definition of the mischief-making practice. In her piece last Friday, "Blears falls prey to 'Google Bomb' Attack Of The 50-inch Woman", Julie Moult hung a tissue-thin story about an alleged "Googlebombing" of Hazel …
I am very disappointed to see that you did not:
a) Put "Web says Julie Moult is an idiot" in your story URL, or its title
b) Link to one of the blog posts with a hyperlink containing "Julie Moult is an idiot".
With your pagerank, either would have been a powerful and lasting contribution to this monument for ill informed shock journalism. And the fact that it's the Daily Mail only makes it even more fun.
lol - couldn't happen to a more worthy eejit.
@ Craig - I wouldn't be welcoming the nazi racoons just yet - it seems the bloggers hold more power here... so, with that in mind.
Let me be the first to welcome our vengeful blogger overlords...
Paris icon - because even she's not dumb enough to take on the Internet in a flame war!!
OMG - like if I ever like kinda needed proof that a law was like broken when the Sun was permitted to register itself as like a "newspaper".
... and Julie Moult - how in the infinite stretch of universal time can that [very entertaining and brilliantly vibrant colo(u)rful metophor deleted by the author to stop the censors from having fun] be described as a journalist? Who needs an infinite number of monkeys, bubbles could out 'creative type' that waste of ink and paper on his first attempt... shame the link to "comment on this story" was removed from the Racoon page because I was like sorely tempted to kinda add... "Julie Moult is an Idiot, see the internet for details".
From the Mail - "No comments have so far been submitted. Why not be the first to send us your thoughts?"
Bullshit. Comments have been submitted, the Mail have just decided not to publish them.
I know this is just a light-hearted story but it really annoys me that the Mail frequently do not publish innocuous comments they receive if it doesn't fit in with their world view. It creates a bias amongst their readers whereby they think everyone else agrees, because it appears that nobody has offered contrary comments.
Rant over, and thank you to the Reg mods for allowing dissent amongst user comments. You twats.
"When did raccoons learn to swim then?"
Sometime before Michael Phelps...where d'ye think they get their fish, Aldi?
"Raccoons can swim with an average speed of about 4.8 km/h (3.0 m/h) and stay in the water for several hours."* More likely to smuggle themselves in on lorries...
*It must be true, I read it on Wikipedia...
As a sensitive and diligent researcher that works for such a mighty organ as the Daily Mail it is her duty to warn us of anything that uses a bomb.
The suspicion now is that Google is not run by a bunch of American commie wierdos but directly controlled by one Mr Bin-Laden.
It is only a matter of time when these 'bombs' are delivered to our computers at home and triggered all at the same time rendering the West(tm) totally open to invasion by the Muslim hordes who have been infiltrating these shores for many years.
I welcome the wisdom of one of our premier investigative journalists who flies in the face of misguided ridicule.

We'd be saddled with a Faith-Based Internet, mark these words well.
Sad but so - just think it out for y'self if ye be new to this sort o' thing...
A dead vulture's the closest thing I could find to a choked chicken - no spanked monkey icon in sight. 'Cause this world is full o' faith-based wankers and their abusive, mass-manipulating Raccoon-Cloaked Lizard Overlords, floating 'Way High Overhead like the top cap on the US dollah-bill's ubiquitous quasi-Egyptian "Ponzimid" on the back-side) with Gross Impunity no matter the cost to all.
Come to think of it, Egypt's been mighty helpful to the US State Torture Regime, now ain't she just? But I wander; I'll just get me coat now.
Utter rubbish, that entire Web-published notion of swinging that entire gallon bucket of Google Bits all dissolved in nitromethane 'toon-dip above my head by hand for half an hour - we tricked out an old washing machine to do that phase of the as-alleged process for us straight off (for safe distance's sake) and it still blew right up in our faces... Result: Another State Weapon of Mass Deception set aright.
Mine's the one with the REAL Google-bomb-making instructions embedded in the micro-size USB-drive, carefully hemmed into the lining for the children's sake in the world a-coming... Peace. I'm out.
Well if you google her name now, the first 4 PAGES of result imply that this particular journalist has a below average IQ.
And she works for the Daily Hate.
They're a match made in heaven
Paris? Well if Ms Mould works hard and studies she might yet someday become a genius like her
I think you'll find that one of the best known googlebombing campaigns was "french military victories".
It even still works, 6 years later, despite bloggers predicting that the mockup google page would fall quickly in the ranks.
If you want a trip down memory lane, type "french military victories" into google and press "I'm Feeling Lucky".
I agree, I hate the Mail too, and I have on a few occasions submitted comments to their retarded stories which do not concur with the general concensus of the wail reading population, not a single one appeared on the wail's site, and you're clearly right, it's only done to further compound their deluded readers scary view on the world (which they learnt from sources such as the wail in the first place)
haha, daily fail, i like it
... and say that it isn't usually the journo that writes the headline -- but then I read the story*. Oh, dear. Yep, Moult is an idiot, and a vicious, rude, offensive one at that. She should be next to Jackie Smith when the revolution comes ...
* Story in the sense of a minor fact dressed up in fantasy, not journalism.
By the way, am I the only one to notice a lack of TheManFromMars this week?
To successfully pursue this is court, the idiot Julie Moult would need to prove that she was not an idiot... and since Julie Moult is an idiot it would be very difficult for the idiot Julie Moult to prove anything other than the fact that all the internet comments about Julie Moult being an idiot are, in fact, completely true.
There was actually some American celebrity who wanted the Internet manager to work on ridding the world of spam or something. I'm not sure who was in charge of the Internet at the time, but s/he declined to do it, so spam continues.
Raccoons are rather interesting and intelligent creatures. Too bad these raccoons are Nazis.
