Shoemoney: "Brett Tabke hates me"

23 comments

Shoemoney has had some differences with other web personalities in the past which have been made good so it's not entirely clear as to how serious
this one is:

"Brett Tabke hates me."

(In answer to a question as to why he's not a speaker at PubCon.)

He also comments elsewhere:

"I will never speak at pubcon ... seriously"

This comes after Shoemoney's positive PubCon Las Vegas experience:

"I got a little bit of face time with Brett about possibly speaking at the next Pubcon."

What's happened in the meantime?

oh come on ...

It may not be ground shaking news but it is some good old fashioned (yet substantiated) gossip. And I know I'm not the only one interested in it.

I see where you're coming from ukgimp

but I guess I'm a sucker for those red top tabloid style headlines that we have over here in the UK & Ireland. "whale shit link bait bollocks": love it!

Yeah, so maybe shoe is trying to garner some links in the same way as he did with his calling out of that plentyoffish guy but hey let's go along for the ride, I'm stuck at my laptop for the afternoon and this is diversionary entertainment.

I still think there's room for this at TW, no?

for fuck's sake why does

for fuck's sake why does shoemoney think he is special ?

Brett hates a lot of the people who are members at threadwatch for one reason or another, ex admins, mods or just WMW members who moved away due to one reason or another

sheesh which editor boosted this to the front page...he should be strung up high by his bollocks

Are we going to be getting

Are we going to be getting reports next time ShoeMoney wipes his arse?

he just did..

I just skimmed the headline, but it appears he wipes front to back ;)

I think we are all wise

I think we are all wise enough to spot this as the link bait it is and NOT treat it as news worth printing here.

Many here do link bait for a living - seems insulting to subject us to it.

(If you are reading this Shoemoney, I really think you are pushing the link bait a little too far these days - your credability is taking a real hit, and that might be behind Brett hating you - if indeed he does, I suspect he is not alone)

shoemoney -> zoolander

"Shoemoney is so hot right now he could take a crap, wrap it in tinfoil, put a couple fish hooks on it and sell it to Queen Elizabeth as earrings."

He's hot property, the poster boy for a new generation of search professionals. Does this irk some people? Just asking.

Err

What credibility? Lost it with me months ago.

>>>the poster boy for a new

>>>the poster boy for a new generation of search professionals

don't make me laugh...no...you can't be serious...nah surely not

...

I'm sure shoemoney is a nice guy and has talents other than link baiting, but if the "new generation of search professionals" really feels that a big adsense cheque and some contentious headlines makes someone their favourite pinup then they need some help, quick.

mm1220, Are you shoemoney?

mm1220,

Are you shoemoney? You seem to be doing a fair bit of promo for him.

just asking

This should never have even

This should never have even been published let alone front paged. Who the heck cares who Brett likes or hates and who the hell cares if Shoemoney whines about it?

Shoemoney doesn't need Tabke

Shoe is "new" and WMW is old school, stodgy, no site search.....boring.
Shoemoney is new web, edgy..........somewhat interesting.

promo for shoemoney

Nah, I'm not Shoemoney. I guess I like his web-story-so-far and admire his attitude though. I'll qualify that by saying that I don't have a poster of shoemoney and no, I don't wear his t-shirt to bed.

>> but it is some good old

>> but it is some good old fashioned (yet substantiated) gossip.

So TW DOES still have value then?

>> And I know I'm not the only one interested in it.

For the love of God, how? Do you mean that people actually sit around and talk about this? Like, for real?

Who BT does, or does not, have personal issues with is really NOT news (sorry, Brett, but it's just not)

<puke> Somebody close this thread.

>> sheesh which editor boosted this to the front page...he should be strung up high by his bollocks
Sack them as editor first, please. The purge must continue.

Enough

Who really gives a flying f*ck about either of 'em

trolling comments?

>>He's hot property, the poster boy for a new generation of search professionals. Does this irk some people? Just asking.
Going by your trolling comments you sound very suspiciously like a link bait prostitute I know.

I was just trying to explain why shoemoney's grievances with other people might be worthy of comment. I was trying to put them in a broader context. I wasn't trying to raise anybody's hackles.

"hot property"? "poster boy"? Not trolling?

>>I was just trying to explain why shoemoney's grievances with other people might be worthy of comment.
That a bunch of newbie, wannabe web entrepreneurs hang on to his every word because he once made a big Adsense cheque does not mean that the crowd here hold him in any awe. I post here annonymously so disregard me as completely unimportant but bear in mind that many who frequent/post at TW are pubcon speakers themselves and bigger names in the online world than Shoemoney will ever be.

He may be a nice chap but the more he (or his puppets) keep posting every time he has a wank the louder the protests here will get.

purpose of TW

Look, I'm not shoemoney's puppet. Never met or talked to the chap. I submitted what I thought might be interesting for some people to read about. An editor obviously agreed. Does that mean that everyone will be interested in it? Of course not.

Isn't TW big enough to cater for both "newbie, wannabe web entrepreneurs" and "pubcon speakers ... and bigger names in the online world than Shoemoney"?

the crowd here

Do you mean the editors, the users or the passers by? I think they are three very different demographics. And determining that goes to the very root of this discussion.

Huh, editors and users are two different demographics?

However you cut the demograhics there is no hormonal, Oh-My-God!, teenage girl crowd here. TW isn't big enough to allow that lot in, no.

Dead?

Someone suggested TW was dead yesterday....well, perhaps not dead, but the cancer definitely needs cutting out if this patient expects to live. Lets stick to SEO and SEM and ballocks to gossip. Who gives a flying fuck about who likes who anyway? Who cares?

best point of this whole thread

Who gives a flying fuck about who likes who anyway? Who cares?
