tribe.net are pathetic publicity-grabbing ghouls

In Hurricane Katrina, you have one of the biggest disasters in American history. Rumours of 10,000 people dead.

So the natural inclination is to look on horrified, and donate money. Preferably without any self-regard or attempt for publicity.

Not unless you’re tribe.net. In their generosity, they’re promising to donate $1 (60p) if … and get this … you recommend someone else to join tribe.net. Gosh golly, how generous of them. We’ll donate – but only if you artificially inflate our numbers. Surprised they’re not down in New Orleans advertising their offer on billboard with floating bodies around them.

This attitude – we’ll only help if it helps us – is probably what led to the temporary downfall of New Orleans in the first place. And the election of Bush, which encouraged global warming, which led to bigger hurricanes…
