John Gotts and the Searching Debacle

Tuesday March 6, 2007 - by: Jeff

What the... What the hell just happened here? Did you see that? Did we just get mugged? Did we just go through some sort of a time warp or something?

Did somebody slip something in my drink and it is just now wearing off?

Are we going insane!?

If you're a regular viewer of Fugly, you may have noticed a couple of slight changes that started happening in about September 2006. Changes that we're still working to this day to repair.

Nothing huge, just little things like completely dismantling the site and stripping it of virtually everything but the video upload section. Removing all colors from the layout except for white and baby blue, so that it would look more web-two-point-ohwee. Taking down anything remotely original and interesting, while redirecting you loyal viewers to some boring search site.

Little stuff like that. You probably didn't even notice.

In a nutshell, this is what happened. We met a guy named John Gotts. John offered to purchase Fugly from us if we first made some changes to it and allowed him to control the advertising space on the site for a set monthly fee. He was to basically rent the site with the option to buy it over a one-year period

We were mesmerized by the sheer amount of money that was being offered to us. There was a possibility, or so we thought, that we would be millionaires, many times over.

It was exciting. It was fascinating. It almost seemed too good to be true, and that's because, guess what!

It WAS!

It's a long, long, long story, filled with tales of great riches, mysterious international business men, PIRATES, captains of industry, methamphetamines, The RIAA and Motion Picture Association of America, missing venture capital, a kiddy pool FILLED with Red Bull and even a PET WOLF!

Seriously, this would make a great movie. Or an after-school special; I can't decide which, but I'm sure you're all very anxious to hear it.

Don't worry.

In the same fashion as the Trailer Park Wars of the summer of 2000, we'll bring you the whole sordid story right here (just as soon as we figure it all out ourselves).

This one is a real doozie so stay tuned. Events are still unfolding, even as I type.

In the mean time, we're all getting back to business as usual and we're starting by putting back all the stuff we removed AND, even though we didn't get our millions, potentially giving them to you!

MILLIONS you say? Are you intrigued? Do you want to know more?

Of course you do!

Well you don't have to lose your ass and your dignity to get it. All you have to do is enjoy yourself. Click here to learn more about that.
