There are other Radomirs in the world. I was first to sign up, though.

Maybe you should also inform the 350,000 new people who register every single day, or the ones who send 150,000 requests to the site PER SECOND. Or the ones listening to 250,000 concurrent streams of music and 15,000 concurrent streams of video at any one time.

I'm also sure that the 4.5 million people on the site at any one time would also enjoy knowing that MySpace is dead. 70,000 megabits per second bandwith is certainly nowhere near approaching "dead."

I'd like to know your definition of "dead?"

Wow, that'* a fairly strong defense. I see you like MySpace a lot. I don't mean to spoil the fun, but I have to let you know that most of the people on MySpace, in my opinion at least, are not of the same demographic as those browsing Yahoo, theradomir.com, Facebook, etc.

Also, there are 8 bits in one byte. 70,000 megabits per second seems like a whole lot, and it is, but it'* actually just 8,750 megabytes per second. It'* just a small discrepancy, and nothing personal, but the point of this is that communication companies like to use bits to inflate their numbers. I don't know if much can be done with a bit as a computer can't understand it by itself, but I can think of a few things that can be done with a byte. Enjoy that information.

I'm sure no one means anything offensive in saying any site is dead. One very good example of a dead site is PeopleLikePoisoningKittens.com, a site that is so dead that it never even existed! I'm sure people like to think back to a time when MySpace had the potential to become what Facebook today, and even greater. They remember when they joined thinking that it would be a good networking tool. Unfortunately, the 100% useless spam with no party profiting and the few stories of MySpace-blamed abduction have tainted the domain to the extent that this has lowered the integrity of the site in the general public'* eye.

So, MySpace.com isn't dead. I use it sometimes to invite people over or to check up on some recent news with my friends. However, it'* not my favorite site, and I probably am one of those who considers it dead because regardless of the massive use of the site, its application is improper. Sorry, dude. We can still be friends, though, right?

LOL...I didn't mean anything offensive, I was just saying...that IMO, MySpace is anything but dead, and I was interested in knowing what makes someone think a site is "dead" because surely there is no supporting information. I hear "MySpace is dead" all the time, not just here in this instance. But all information points to the contrary. I don't really LOVE MySpace...I just use it to keep up with friends, current events, parties, etc.

I definitely agree that it is LOADED with spam and bots and garbage. I agree 100%. But theres a reason Rupert Murdoch (Fox Broadcasting) bought MySpace. It is de facto the number one way to market to ages 14-34. It'* popularity (in terms of raw page views) continues to rise, and is much greater than Facebook (altho Facebook IMO is better).

So while the initial "oohhh coooool" factor may have worn off, MySpace is anything but dead. However, it'* very possible that it'* just a passing trend, and that people will gravitate away from it in time, to another more superior social networking site. Anyone remember Xanga, Friendster, etc?

I remember those older ones. Of course. A couple friends of mine got married and moved to a mid-Atlantic island off the coast of Portugal. That was pretty cool, and I kept up with it on Xanga.

Perhaps I have a natural tendency to abandon my profiles, but I currently have no updates for my MySpace and Facebook pages. I haven't done anything there in the longest time. The trend is over with me, but I'm still wearing crocs.

As far as that goes, the crocs were free, and they feel like any other sandal. Why would I pay for something fashionable when I can look like a dweeb for free? Oh yeah. I wear them to my college classes and cross my legs proudly.

lol..man, you've got some crazy stories. Funnnyyyy stuff tho, haha.

The "cool factor" of MySpace is definitely worn off with me...I use it as more of a tool now, and don't sit on it for hours. Check the messages, see whats goin on, and off in 5-10 minutes. Bulletins are great though, atleast for keeping up with parties, lol.
