In May 2009, the following post was made in a forum on a YouTube video-sharing site:
“Greetings, Everyone!! (I’m just writing this for myself) I hope life is going well for you all! I have noticed that many of you have gotten tired of being ignored by your friends. Well, I know that most of you have felt this way. I have been there. You get tired of people not talking to you and turning their backs on you as if you don’t exist anymore. That’s why it hurts my feelings whenever someone ignores me and walks away. But… but… but nobody has ever talked to me before!!! And now, ALL OF A SUDDEN, some people are talking to me again!! WOW!!! That’s amazing! That’s fantastic!!! So tell me – what did the person who ignored me do to deserve YOUR friendship? It seems unfair to mistreat someone like that! You should ensure they deserve your respect before giving them your friendship. Give them time to earn your respect if they didn’t deserve it already!”

more than 7.6 million people visit VH1.com weekly
VH1 is a television network specializing in music, pop culture, and lifestyle programming. The channel was founded in 1980 by Martha Raye and Charlie Hodge as an outlet for their professional development company, Raye-Hodge Productions Inc., which produced several shows for HBO and Showtime during their early years.
The original VH1 logo consisted of two stacked triangles with a red background, framing a blue starburst inside each one; this design was used from its launch until 1989, when it began using its current logo (which features an animated ballerina). The name derives from the first letters of “video” and “music,” although this was later changed to include “video” only after MTV launched. In 1981, VH1 added an hour-long program called Live From Headline News (later renamed Live From New York); it featured performances by famous artists such as Stevie Nicks, David Bowie, Madonna KISS, Michael Jackson, Guns’ N Roses, Cyndi Lauper , Peter Gabriel, Van Halen[18), Genesis, Hall & Oates .
