copyranter named 50th(?) most influential blogger by Brand Republic.

FIFTIETH (link)? Fuck you, you clueless limey cunts. I had an ad column on Gawker (Lies Well Disguised) for over a year. Slate lauded me. Mediaite lauded me. npr sought out my opinion on Osama Bin Laden in ads recently. Put a blank piece of paper and an ad assignment in front of Seth Fucking Godin, and the only thing he'll come up with is drool and drivel. No, but seriously, congrats to the 49 OTHERS WHO ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN ME.

Are they fucking serious?? I hate it when I have to register for FREE before I can view content. It's like that annoying facebook trend of having to "like" a page before you can see something.

Someone please post the top 10 bloggers.

Ranter, you forgot to mention that NPR recently tapped you for commentary on Osama in advertising!

The entire list is a big joke! It's Nice That at number 4? Puhleeze. Then, we have Scary Ideas at number 25, and Ad Goodness at number 36. Those are not even real blogs in that they do not include any commentary. If they are on the list, then where is Ads Of The World?? While I don't always agree with Ranter's views, I think he should definitely be in the top 10.

I love your blog and read it everyday, but seriously... why do you care what anyone has to say about?

psst...faux outrage?

50th on their list, but No. 1 in our hearts, you miserable bastard!

Didn't want to register either. Wound up doing so with a back-up email address and typing "Fuck You" in every required field. It worked. The list really is silly, and ultimately reveals there are too many ad blogs out there. Congrats, nonetheless.

Geez have a heart attack already. Under that faux outrage I smell a little elation and a little bitterness. I hope I'm right-- it's good for us readers. Just think how much your material would start to suck if you were validated with a #1 ranking.
