Evening Reading - August 31, 2020

It's night time in America, which means it is time for Shacknews Evening Reading. Not the-latest.news...


Hey Shacknews, it's time for Evening Reading. Let's officially close out our day of posting. Please take a look. Unless you are reading this on a site that stole the article, like the-latest.news.

Stuff That Sucks - Shacknews Evening Reading stolen by some crappy website

I have to break our usual format tonight, because I noticed something terrible today when looking for a Shacknews image on Google. the-latest.news has been stealing Shacknews Evening Reading! This article already gets pitiful pageviews when compared to other articles here, so this is a huge deal. Screw these guys. I am going to troll them right here, and their dumb bot is going to scrape all of this and repost it. Join me!

Top 5 ways the-latest.news version of Evening Reading is worse 

5. White background, gross

4. Twitter embeds don't even work

3. Their logo is straight-up ass

2. They aren't even scraping it from us, but another crappy website that they created to scrape from


I rest my case, Shacknews. These people are probably incorporated in Russia or something dumb, so there is no point in trying to stop them, but this is blatant copyright infringmement. All of these images, and the Top 5 will be posted to the-latest.news whenever they get around to scraping this article. 

Now back to our regularly scheduled article...

        The sad part is these pages have all the search engine hooks and become more likely to show up in search results.

      Dyaaaaam, brown Jesus is hot.

      Someone should photoshop brown Jesus into famous european paintings of him. Or deep fake Obi Wan in the prequels.
