Comment On Announcement: Website.RenameTo("The Daily WTH")

As you can probably tell by now, The Daily WTF is now named The Daily WTH, as in The Daily What The Heck. Don’t worry, though – nothing else has changed. Okay, that’s not entirely true: a few other things are changing, but they’re all mostly minor. Really, you won’t even know the difference. [expand full text]

May I suggest a new theme for The Daily WTH? I think those yellowish-green bars and buttons are still awful.

Here is what I would like to see:

I hope Alex is tracking the number of hits TheDailyWTH.com gets so we can have a good laugh.


My wife had just called to tell me there was a goat in our backyard. Seriously? I love goats but we live in the city/suburbs so I found it strange. Then she yelled that a dinosaur was eating it. We just watched Jurassic Park on Sunday.

My point being that I was in a skeptical mood when I read this article. I had to see if Alex actually went the extra mile and purchased thedailywth.com.

What is "a Living Heck" anyway? Shouldn't that be "When Life is like Living in Heck"? That's the real WTH.

I feel sorry for Alan; there he was, getting in the spirit, and everyone missed the point. I think it was his description of everything in the IT world being "okiedokey" that persuaded me he was playing along...

Cool!!!

I'm glad you too got fed up with the IT stuff...
I was waiting 'till it got a more cuddly personality.
I was thinking about deleting my feed, but now I'll keep it for sure.

You can also name it back to 'The Daily WTF' and let it stand for 'The Daily FiddelyDing-Dong'.



God.. I'm glad I checked the calendar.

I, for one, would like to chime in on the name-changing-hate band wagon. It's not profane now, I hope you're happy and will quick changing the god damn name. No one cares but you, so knock it the fuck off.

Also, the comics are really bad. To the point where I don't even look at those articles. If there's no punch line, it's not a comic.. so why would I read it? If you need an artistic outlet, that's fine, but keep up with the real articles.

Remember your customer base here. We're tech nerds who are looking for our daily dose of computer trickery. If you stray too far from that, you'd better attract a new audience or maybe your current audence's employer's time won't be worth it anymore.

For fuck's sake.

Can somebody censor this post please? I was teaching my cat how to read and now I can tell it really wants to drop an F bomb. Cats are hard enough to control as it is and if I had wanted to follow my pet around all day making sure it doesn't cuss I would have gotten a dog. Thanks for creating one heck of an entertaining site.

But what about calling it what the fudge? or perhaps the
daily gosh darn it! Or any exclamation used by Professor Frink from the Simpsons.

Through out each of our career, there were always the moment that WTH just didn't cut it because what you saw right there just didn't deserve any politeness (including the person who did it).

I am sorry but this rename sounds more like an April Fool's joke to me, because I was saying to myself "WTH" (not WTF, mind you, as there IS a difference).

Ok, I'll stick with this theory to help me sleep through tonight.

It was about time!
I cannot count the occasions in which I thought "enough with the elaborate information on programming mishaps and project disasters! ME NEEDZ MO KITTENZ!"
... and then I was utterly sad to find the only emotion-bearing thing be the smiley in the logo, while my brain already started tickling in a bad way because it received unusual amounts of that so-called "intelligent humor" (which sounds nonsensical to me) on this site.

Nevermore! This really is a noble move. You should all be proud of yourselves and celebrate by purring like a cat. In public.

Given the fiasco with the *real* name change a while back, I think this would have been better if you went the *other* way. I think that "The Daily What The Cunt" has a ring to it.

The people that are being taken in obviously aren't reading the comments. Plenty of people taking it WAY to seriously.

(wait, that described the real name change too...)

I'm sorry, but I must protest your horrific plans to take advantage of cats. People need to understand that the senseless exploitation of animals must cease. While one would have hoped that with all your apparent "knowledge" you would have known better, but alas that does not seem to be the case. We can only hope you choose to reverse your decision within 24 hours or suffer what will surely be an onslaught of protest from those who believe that cute little pussies should not be exploited and abused for your pleasure.

Yours Truly,

Point taken. I am just tired of having to take everything, and I mean EVERYTHING with a grain of salt on April Fools Day because some people think its funny to post fake news articles, or do stuff like this.

Is it because I am a humourless individual? I hope not. Is it because I've already been duped by a couple fake things today which either got me excited or riled up, only to find out it was a stupid joke? Most likely.
