Copyranter is now at BuzzFeed.

Yep. Same shit, different place.

You will still find "fucks" and dirty, unfunny jokes and misanthropy and hyperbole.

So, change your bookmarks, RSS, feedburner, Google thingie, however the fuck you get here, to there.

Here's the link, in case you missed the honking red banner up there.

Once there, you have to sign-up to comment (sorry), or you can do it through facebook. But please do it! I need your smart writing that is so lacking in my posts (You know I'm not being facetious).

I want to thank all you readers/commenters, because without you, I wouldn't have been able to make this move.

I also implore you to keep sending me tips. This is why:
I will PayPal $25 to the person who sends me the best tip each month.
Hey, twenty-five bucks is twenty more than five bucks.

I will still occasionally post here, but mostly non-ad related things.

OK? Great. Get out of here.

Are they paying you? Are you still an agency hack? How do we send you tips now? Are your anonymous trolls coming along for the ride?

So many questions...

April's fool? Please tell me it is so. Of course I'm not going to that cesspool of a website, it looks and feels horrible. Why would you possibly want to move there? I'm sticking with April's fool.

Of course they're fucking paying me, full-time. I left my agency. EugenS: I get to rant just as angry as I did here AND GET PAID WELL FOR IT. How's that? Jesus, you people are stupid.

Ok. Congratulations, then. But it won't be the same. We have to share you with the unwashed masses now. It was nicer when we had you all to ourselves.

can't you get paid through advertising on your blog or some stupid donation scheme instead of that? christ, it's hard even to find the fucking rss feed in there. don't get me wrong, fuck yea you're getting paid and so on and so forth, but now it just looks like you've been eaten up by a big ugly "social" website, just a face among others. I mean, this place right here has its own page in the big book of advertising, it's normal for people to get sad that it's gonna die. (also I'm still skeptical, but I'll go along for the time being)

Of course I'm going to follow you over there, but, good lord, that site is hard on the eyes!

Give the new overlords the royal 'Ranter treatment! (What? Bad advice on your first day?)

Okay, how about just giving them a little design guidance?

Congrats on the new gig! Obviously, I'll follow you over, but that looking at that site is punishment.

You should give them the royal 'Ranter treatment! Okay, maybe not on your first day.

I'm glad you're getting paid to do this, you're one of my favorite bloggers. Buzzfeed is so cluttered and ugly though, its a shame you have to give up this nice clean space in favor of that hellhole. Guess we'll have to get used to it.

EugenS, with my traffic and donations, I wouldn't be able to pay my cellphone bill.

I'm happy you are getting paid for this - since it's awesome.

What about all the linking to archived stories and related posts? I guess it won't have that...unless you are linking to new posts on Buzzfeed?

That's the only shitty part.

Congrats mang

congrats, ranter.

next time, though, get hired by a site that doesn't take a visual shit down my throat.

Wish I could just continue my Reader subscrip with the Ranter and not all the Buzzfeed crap. No doubt it's worth getting paid on your end, but over here, the thrill is gone.

I read feeds as gadgets on my iGoogle startpage, when add a new gadget and paste, I get all sorts of buzzfeed crap. What can i do to get copyranter and only copyranter? Any ideas?

Sorry Laura, I accidently deleted your comment. In answer to your question, I have no idea. I am a tech idiot. Maybe it doesn't work because I just started at BuzzFeed?

Buzzfeed is everything I hate about the internet. Sorry Mark. I'll miss you.

I have to go with the naysayers on this one. As much as I love your work, it just isn't the same seeing it on BuzzKill. I'm going to miss you.

None of these -I'm outs- are paying your bills. Cash those fancy Buzzfeed checks and take your parents out for a swank dinner.

If I knew you, I'd make you buy me a new dustbuster.

Good grief people are jealous creatures. Which makes them really fun to irritate!

Oh so that's where you are now. And i was wondering why you aren't spamming my Google Reader anymore. Superb man, all the best. Oh, and I don't think you'll be allowed to delete offending comments over there :D

So your blog is now hosted on the same site that once posted Scarlett Johansson's leaked nude photos? Nice. You lost all my respect.

Like I care.

Go read the scintillating AdFreak.

Sorry, that is such douchbaggery that I don't know how anyone can stand to be in the same room as you.

Oh wait, I must be jealous of you, amirite?

Thank you for updating your photo, Copyranter. I mean the one you had taken for Buzzfeed. I've always been curious what you look like. Now I know.....

i guess that makes me the only hack left who's been at the same agency for 18 years.
I think you've still got a few years on me, though. Whew!

To get the RSS feed (without getting all the other shitty Buzzfeed crap):

Go to

Click on the little orange RSS button next to his name (Mark Duffy) in the sidebar

That's the proper RSS link you want to copy-paste into your reader.

Gonna miss this blog, but I like your rants a lot, so I will tolerate the eye rape of Buzzcrap
