What is CollectionOfAwesome.com ? A personal blog dedicated to sharing awesome stuff that’s on the web and other things I want to share. The blog originally ran from 2009 to Nov 2015 when I abruptly closed it and deleted everything… I’ve since reopened it on “May the Fourth 2016.

About the author – Ben (Insanity540)
I’m just a guy from Sydney (Australia) with a strange sense of humour trying to share things I like. I’m happy that people have enjoyed what I’m sharing. I’m experimenting with how this blog will evolve. I think there is a lot of potential for it to reclaim it’s former glory… include some more personal aspects… be interesting… and allow people to get to know a different side of me.

Want to contribute? Great. let me know via contact us, twitter, facebook… anything.

Please Comment!!!: I really would like to hear what you think about the blog or specific posts. Most comments will get a response. The only exception to that are rude/inappropriate comments. Don’t forget there is an official Twitter account and Facebook Page which you can also follow and contact.

Are you able to bring back the old content? I can’t bring back everything instantaneously… I did a great job of obliterating the posts… but I have found a way of restoring some posts individually. This process is complicated, but should result in some of the best stuff coming back online between 2009-2015.

I’m going to focus more on posting new content, but will also occasionally restore old posts.

Legal disclaimer: any references to people, objects, images, content both living, dead and online is purely coincidental. This disclaimer works for all major movies so it’ll work for this blog. If there is something posted here that belongs to you, I will try my best to give you credit by creating a link to the source. If I can’t find the source link, I’ll gladly add it if you write a pleasant comment. If you are really angry about something I’ve posted, please comment on it and I’ll review it and/or remove it. I’m a reasonable person and all I’m doing is promoting awesome stuff on the net. Remember that this blog is for fun, it isn’t making any money or profit.

People that write harassing comments: Don’t waste your time and mine. Every comment is moderated and I get quite a lot of background information whenever you submit a comment. If I don’t just delete the comment, I might just edit whatever you say based on how bored I am. It’s been known to happen.

This blog has a zero tolerance to trolls: all comments are moderated, please don’t waste your time or mine with crap.

Hey all your images at hotlinked!!!: yeah they are,  Sorry. I know its a douche thing to do, but currently the image uploading and posting for wordpress isn’t as quick and efficient as I need it to be. Unfortunately the entire basis of this blog relies on my ability to quickly draft up posts without taking too much time/effort. As always, if you want me to remove images/content, please just write a polite comment on the post.

Remove this image! I’m happy to comply with most post removal requests if you are polite and explain why. Don’t be a jerk.

…And if I have offended you…

    You have an interesting site with some clever content. I was wondering if you would be opposed if we plagiarized your site a bit? I am part of a site, Mizozo.com. We have a lot of contributors already, but I like your content. Our team could simply copy your content word for word, and always give a linkback to the original story. It will definitely help with your SEO, as well as give you some click throughs. Let me know either by replying or sending me an email.

      Hey, glad you like it. Feel free to repost my stuff. FYI I hold no rights to any of my content, I hotlink it and source the original content.

      I would be glad for you to use my posts if you linked back to my blog. Thanks.

      • Mizozo 03/03/2010, 12:27 PM / 12:27 pm

        Great. If you would like to follow what is being plagiarized, you can visit your subdomain, bender.mizozo.com. Also, if you would like to be alerted to any comments on posts copied I will need an email. Feel free to simply send me an email from the email you would prefer I use, rather than post it here as a comment.

        Otherwise, if you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to either write me directly, or post a comment on the site. Thanks again.

          Awesome, I have sent you an email so you can setup that notification on comments. thanks.

    Love your work Ben, been coming back periodically for years and now subscribe. Great to see some ‘cut through’ as you ‘drill down’ through the content to get to the ‘key sites’ on the web.
    Whew, gunning for friday!

    • Ben 16/11/2011, 10:50 AM / 10:50 am

      Thanks Nick. I have been trying to streamline it a bit and make it a bit easier to find the stuff you are after. Let me know if there is anything in particular you enjoy and I’ll find it for you.
