Marriage Map: cartogram, more crazy reviews [Aug. 27th, 2011|01:54 pm]

I added a new feature to the same-sex marriage map (and corresponding webOS version) - a cartogram! It weights each state by population (roughly) so you have a better view as to what percentage of the population lives under what laws. (and it's easier to see what a big deal New York is!)

Since the last crazy webOS app review, I've gotten a few more! The first one is responding to that last reviewer:
To (the negative reviewer):I pray that you die in a fiery car crash. JUST KIDDING! I don't pray. But I'm hoping for that crash. :-)
and today I woke up to a new one star review:
Men who say they are gay are basically telling you they like another man's pen1s up their butt... That's freaking disgusting! Y wud I want to know tht?! How wud you like it if i came up to you and told you I liked to swallow d1cks? Don't you all get it? May the lord Jesus Christ have mercy on these wretched sinners, or may he smite them for their Satanous ways... I love God & he protects the holy, I am at peace.

Sigh. I think my next app is going to be about puppies; everyone likes puppies, right?

Experience living in MA

Well after having lived in massachusetts, I can safely say that its only a matter of time. The world won't end when gay marriage is finally legal but it's not like I needed any convincing. Its really hard to believe that this is still an issue that affects so much of the country!

Re: Experience living in MA

Yeah, sometimes I'm amazed at the progress we've made, and the rest of the time I'm amazed this is really an issue in the first place....

I love the 1s in there, like he's use to avoiding spam filters...you got hate-spammed by a professional! Yay?

Ooh, also, I was thinking, do you have a Where's Lunch app? Because that seems like a good mobile app. I was thinking about it recently -- do you still maintain the website? Because I'l add DC stuff!

Yeah - I was impressed by his spelling, too, until I got past the first sentence...

Ooh, that's a good idea. The website still works, as far as I know, so feel free to add DC places!

Um... what about Cruella DeVille?

PS: I'm someone you know IRL, just not someone you've met on LJ before... :-)
