Be heard

Believe it or not, one particular post on MTL Blog is worse than the rest.  It’s the one with the snappy tittle of “British Girl Blows 24 Spanish Bros For Free Drink” and the tag line of “She was really thirsty.”

This is wrong on many levels and one of the reasons we started this site. Aside from the fact this is incredibly misogynistic and is degrading to women, the tag line “She was really thirsty” is even more disrespectful since they are making a joke out of it.” You can even see the comments from a MTL Blog contributor laughing about people who have issue with this post and their practices.

Another issue is this has nothing to do with Montreal. This is simply filler junk content, there is no rhyme or reason why it is there. There doesn’t even seem to be an SEO benefit for this, so why have it?

It hasn’t been removed from the site even though other people are complaining about it.  So let’s take this opportunity to turn a negative into a positive and hit them where it hurts, their pockets.

Sites like this only exist to make money and rely on advertisers.

As of today, we found 4 advertisers on their site (2 seem to be private ads other are from google ad network.)

Piknicelectronik @ Piknic web site here in association with Moog @moogaudio web site here. I included the advertising tracking code for Piknic so it’s clear that their ad is on this site. In case the picture isn’t enough proof.

Zoofest also has a large banner ad above that you can reach the via twitter  @zoofest or on their web site. They likely spent a chunk of change on the multi sided ad.  Zoofest is a local Montreal Festival and although I’m sure they love publicity like any advertiser, we doubt they want to be associated with content like this.

Feel free to link to this exact page so they can see their ad. If the post comes down, that is a victory to all.  If the post stays but the ads disappear then it is a step closer, either way this doesn’t work without multiple people taking to Twitter, Facebook and any other social media. Take the 10 seconds to send that tweet.

How to steal other peoples photos 101

MTL Blog has a nasty habit of taking other peoples content without asking their permission. Case and point, this bring your own wine article where they use a picture that belongs to a local blogger Will Travel for food.

You can see their displeasure by the comment on the stolen photo in this screen grab. The text reads “It would be nice of you to give credit and place a link back when you take a photo without the author’s permission (even nicer if you ask!), as in the photo of Raza you stole from me since I don’t remember you asking if you could use it. ”

The original post, from 2011, can be see here.

The stolen photo is still up and can be seen below.

Not only is the photo is still up, the post/complaint from June 2nd has not yet been acknowledged. People may not think that this is a bad thing since we all use photos from the internet. However the problem with this is that this blogger worked hard on the post, the photo and they paid for that meal. So one can assume that photo alone cost around $20-$40. To take the intellectual property of someone who created that content without permission is not okay. Simply put, you the hard work of someone else and making profit off of it. Remember, there are ads on the site so content = ad revenue. Keep in mind the post has more space given to the photo than the actual text so clearly they value it but not enough to ask for permission.

Friends don’t let friends like MTL Blog.

 

 

Help! My friends liked MTLblog – and they keep sharing their stuff – (They Don’t know Any Better – Version)

Ok so your friends like MTL Blog, they share those posts on Facebook and it drives you nuts.

 

The poor quality writing like this:  “The dating profiles of every Montreal Man” or in this case white hipsters (So much for Ethnic diversity in Montreal)

mtl blog whit ppl only

 

Or the Sexist and offensive posts like this recent one

mtl blog no class

 

The only problem is that unlike MTL Blog and their douchetastic content your friends are not douchebags  and using our handy douchebag MTL Blog guide will just offend them and start a Facebook fight.

So here are some tips.

  1. Use this link to identify all your friends who like MTL Blog https://www.facebook.com/browse/friended_fans_of/?page_id=254768477928383 .
  2. Don’t judge them. We all clicked on a link we didn’t want to, or liked something on Facebook by accident.
  3. Contact them directly and tell them that sexist trash like this post by Max Joseph / Max Bledstein ( or whatever he calls himself)   is one of the many reasons they should not like and share MTL Blog content on Facebook “British Girl Blows 24 Spanish Bros For Free Drink

Here is some logic as to why we ask people to UN-follow MTL Blog. MTL Blog is ranked site #256 in Canada as per Alexa.  This is bad because it means people are reading this trash. In fact they spend 2:53 minutes on average on this site.  The majority of their traffic, 46% comes from Facebook and their second highest source is Google at a lowly 7.3%. This means that almost all of their traffic comes from Facebook. So if people un-follow MTL Blog on Facebook they will starve and get less traffic. Less traffic means less advertising money. Do the math. Spread the word, Stop MTL Blog.

So it’s clear your friends are douchebags. Douchebags aren’t real people so you can rip into them for being douchebags. Some of them don’t even like being referred to as douchebags so there is a chance they may snap out of it and become normal people.  Meanwhile, while they are still in their douche bag period here is a helpful link that will show you all your friends on Facebook that follow MTL Blog and you can post it as well as this link asking people to un-follow MTL Blog.  If you use the word douchebag in the post maybe your friends will feel ashamed as well and change their ways and you will have done your good deed for the month.
