More Happy MVP Bashing Fun

The awarding of MVP status to some lucky hardworking individuals has - once again - pissed on Jacek's cornflakes.

As always, Jacek has handed these awards off, with some added personal bitchiness:

These MVPs are handpicked by some Microsoft employees on the basis of subjective criteria and without any transparency and usually without any fairness.

The whole MVP thing has always been a personal thing for ole' Jacek. No matter what, he just can't resist having a dig and a rant against people who have been awarded something that he will never get.

Of course, posting something like this bound to piss people off. Hence the nice, still-growing thread of angry replies from readers of MSMobiles - some of which may be fellow JacekWatchers. Let's archive them here - just in case our pal decides to go on a panicked censoring spree again.

Ha-ha! To be internally blacklisted, Microsoft would have to know about you - or care.

I believe Microsoft reserves their MVP status for individuals who:

- Don't practice censorship on their sites
- Don't make personal attacks against Microsoft employees
- Don't possess an irrationally biased distaste for other products (Nokia much?)
- Speak the truth - not half-truths or complete fiction.

I believe you're 0 for 4 on this list. I wish their criteria were objective (whatever THAT means - you have any meaningful measures?) - it would be fun to see how low your score was.

Nothing to see here, just the usual whining about not being awarded an MVP ... which goes to show Microsoft still has some common sense... if your readers think you don't deserve one, I am hard pressed to find a reason Microsoft should just award you one...

At this point, Jacek tries to shrug it off, saying that:one whiner is not "readers". This would have worked had it not been for the fact that he was very, very wrong when he thought that that would be the end of the angry responses... :)

"petermag" writes a good one:
Yeah, please stop the bitching about not getting an MVP award.

For starters, you are NOT *professional*. One just needs to listen to your podcast. The quality of sound varies from episode to episode. Your voice changes from "Damn, I'm sleepy, and I don't care", to "I'm going to kill some people today". On top of that when you record other people you make lots of disturbing noise. To name a few, breathing loud, making too much noise with your digital camera. That's NOT professional.

Then you do not respect the people you interview. On the interview with the girl from Handango, you twisted what she said into what you wanted listeners to hear, and not the truth. You have problems with English, and turn it again other people without them realizing.

You are not able to have one reliable podcast.

Very often, you post news that aren't the full news, and you say others only say half truth. Please look in the mirror.

Constantly bashing MVP status only makes you look very jealous.
You do not really help anyone with your website. You report news, yes, but you do little to add value.

You say MVP status is undeserved, but what the hell do you know about MVP ? You barely help anyone, whereas others do.

Then you keep on "DON'T BUY XYZ" because it doesn't have some stupid feature that most don't care. If one is to wait for the phone that you will recommend, we will be waiting until 2050.

you don't even know how to pronounce so many words. You look like a fool. Your attempts of saying "Yacht" are laughable. It sounds close to "Yawt". No R sounds. K in english is Kay, not Key (like in K-JAM).

"I'm not english native" is not an excuse. Neither am I, and I know better.

Please stick to the news and stop your little jealousy wars. That's not how you will get recognition. You are not that popular.
And finally, at the time of writing, "d0pefish" writes:
Totally agree.

He doesn't even pronounce MSMobiles properly, it's Mo-BYLES, not Mo-BEELS.

The only reason why he's "popular" is because he is very widely recognised across the internet as a crazed psychopath. People don't come here to read your "news", they come here for entertainment.

The website colour scheme, header and logo style is a direct lift from The Register. Yet you have something majorly against The Register for some reason having read your past articles.

Very, very unprofessional, very callous articles, and very silly - not to mention immature.

And stop saying "we" all the time, as if you run some sort of team. Very annoying. Everyone knows it's just you, because no-one else could write such terrible script if they tried.

I think we can see what's going on here, don't you? :)

Be warned, he's going to come after you. He'll make threats to yourself, your family and he'll even tell you that what you're doing to him is the equivelant of shooting his wife.

However, this site rocks so, for as long as it lasts, keep up the good work (not so sure about the animation though, seemed a little sick, but funny noetheless!)

A final comment, I think that he writes enough racist and self-rightous crap with more contradictions than an MP's diary for you to not have to comment on his use of English or his accent. Those are two areas I think should be avoided.

Keep to his nonsense, his bile, his sheer incredulous shite and his stupidity and you'll make better points.

Jacek is, and always will be, a complete loser. Here's a comment that was posted in his forum last year when he was whining about not getting invited to Mobius:

Feel free to front-page that image/comment. ;-)
