Voiceover: A good shoe starts from the ground up. At Eris we make high-quality footwear. In fact, you can find Eris running shoes in over 140 countries around the world. In the past, there has been some criticism about our workers. That's why I'm here in one of Eris factories so you can meet some of them... Excuse me, sir, do you enjoy your job here?
Child: It's fun ... We get to play with knives!
Voiceover: Heh, I see... is there a real sense of teamwork?
Child: My friend Joey sewed his hands together!
Voiceover: Wow, you're learning some real skills! How about the salary and benefits?
Child: Yesterday, I made a dollar!
Voiceover: You see, that's the kind of dedication we have to our employees and the quality of our shoes. Eris Running Shoes. Always running... from something.

I started the Discordian Commerce Guild for one reason only, because Stang is a IP nazi and his followers are not even allowed to spread the damn Dobbs head far and wide.

And this is the heart of the argument.  Gavriel should be allowed to use anyone's IP.

As opposed to, you know, creating his own.

He doesn't seem to be interested in actually using anyone's IP himself, he just seems to have a poor understanding of the difference between trademark and copyright, and also apparently has nothing but contempt for people who copyright their own creative work, which is enough to make me want to keep a wide, wide distance.

I can think of only one reason why someone would hold that sort of contempt.  I could be wrong, but that's how I'd bet.

Point.

Discordianism is exploding.  Discordianism is BIG and it's NOW and it's LOUD.  It's IN YOUR FACE and DOESN'T APOLOGIZE.  Discordianism is WHAT YOUR PARENTS HATE and WHAT EVERYONE WANTS TO FUCK.  Discordianism is happening.  Discordianism is FOR REBELS and the Discordian Brand is for people who want everyone to know they're rebelling.  It's REBELLING AWARENESS.  It's knowing the REBELLION is going on, that it's IN YOU, that YOU ARE IT.  Are YOU Discordianism?  Show it to EVERYONE.

Oh wow.  :lol:

When you put it like this, a Discordian merchandise marketing collective is about as pink as it gets.

TURNING DISCORDIANISM™ INTO A PRICETAG, ONE PRODUCT AT A TIME.

I love reading messages from people who take no time to look into what we are doing and prefer to make sweeping assumptions instead. Where do you people find the time.

There are no 'Discordian Products' being produced, that would be retarded.
We are just Discordians, Artists and Activists that make what we feel like making.

Sorry if that is too confusing a concept for some of you.

You guys just keep talking while some of us keep doing.

Maybe if you had more stake in this community than the occasional drive-by advertisement accompanied by fairly uninteresting hostility, you'd have a better understanding of where this thread went and what the system is here with regards to talking/doing.

But, no, by all means get all "You People" and show us how hurt your butt is that we aren't giving Proper Attention to your brilliance.

This is an automated response. Our Apologies, this poster is too busy changing the world to respond at this time. Please post something and they will get back to you when they have absolutely nothing better to do, like watch paint dry. Thank you for your inattention.

What if we, like, totally stuck it to the man by just creating, man?

It's an idea, man. You can't OWN a creation. We all own imagination, dude... (and so I should totally be able to profit off of your shit).

Yeah, well, try this one on for size:  This isn't your online store.  If you are only here to pimp your website, you're out of here, because you're essentially no different than the shoe sales bots on Facebook.
