Hey guys, so you remember my post about ThomasChong and how he stole ideas and upvoted his own stuff. WELL THIS IS THAT. I've edited this post to this now. I've come to the conclusion after some searching that we have NO IDEA if he upvotes his own shit, maybe he doesn't. A lot of the anonymous upvotes didn't make sense, because who would just blatantly have 15 anonymous upvotes on their own shit? NO ONE. Now, he has stolen a bunch of ideas, but he has deleted all of those highdeas and will now cite all highdeas from other websites. It was a stupid mistake he made (that a lot of us have made, including me) and DOES NOT deserve to receive terrible messages from people who are pissed off. The only reason I made that other highdea in the first place was because it was super annoying seeing all of his highdeas popular and always on the featured list to the right. There are no more over there, and if they are now, then they deserve to be. So give him another chance guys.

Also, heres the message he sent me and the message I sent back, hes a good guy guys and has incredibly insightful and original stories that we could all learn from.

"Whats up guy, I'm just going to say I have nothing to do with these anonymous votes, I never wanted any of my old shitty highdeas to be upvoted, and I've been busting my ass deleting any of the more terrible ones, I'm going to admit that I stole anywhere from 3-5 of my 12 pages of highdeas, does this make me a bad person? Yes, yes it does, but my 50 hits of acid story was the truth, it happened in the 70's and I have a real foggy memory of it, since I didn't record anything except the actual trip, I remember somebody squirting it into my mouth, but thats pretty much it, so I did take maybe one or two details from that dudes story, but everything else was 100% experience, also, that farsideoflife asshole stole from me, and yonkie, and even you I believe, he just posted shit on tumblr for the fame of it I'm not coming here to try and change your mind, I'm saying sorry, I love posting stories, experiences, and drug reviews on this site, I know I'll never steal anything again. To get right down to it.

Thank you, you've really helped me find internet maturity, if that means anything, just know that I have a great deal of respect, you have some pretty awesome highdeas, and I hope that I can make some more good ones in the future."

Here was my response:

"I extremely respect that you messaged me man, you have no idea how happy it made me to find the ones that were actually your stories, because they are incredibly insightful, clever, funny, and very worthwhile to read man. Keep doing originals and I'm sure people will still upvote you, you're thomas goddamn chong haha well not rly but u kno what i mean lol didn't think my post would even get read, and in fact, I thought it would've gotten downvoted the shit out of lol just if you get something, just cite it, i know this aint fuckin english class or anything, but the author does deserve some respect, and we can't give it to him, instead it all goes to you. I respect you for finding and enjoying that type of shit cause its the bomb, just say who wrote it. Again, thanks for taking the time to message me back and I wish you luck in the future."

He is a good guy, obviously, and I honestly don't think the anonymous votes are his doing anymore. Some of his highdeas were made last year and have just recently gotten like 15 anonymous upvotes, including the 3 on the right in upcoming right now. I think it seriously might be some douche trying to make him look bad. The copied highdeas still annoys me but there is such a thing as forgetting to put the citation. So all in all, good learning experience. :)

I kinda agree with this guy in a way. I mean how can the common Highdeas man get a upvote if this guy spends day and night researching things to entertain us? Now that I think about it its not so bad, but still..

Lol. What in the actual fuck is going on in here.

Did you just fucking tattletale? Go to your room.

Why is everyone QQing? Its just one little movement to move past his highdeas. I have seen some good posts and some posts that irk me from him, but I don't really care. I'm just on here to read shit that entices my mind. Not you whiny little cunt rags crying and tattle tailing on the web.

For you brown nosing little shits... stfu too. You don't need to come in here and be his fucking hero, because from what it looks like he tucked his dick between his asscheeks and abandoned ship...

Lol.

Guys you're looking at the wrong stuff.

Either the real Cheech and Chong in person, in an interview, say "yes we go on HighDeas as the users TommyChong and CheechMarilin"

or something simular. Otherwise, we have to assume they aren't the real deal, because it would be so easy for anyone on the internet to make an account with those names.

I still kinda think it's the real them, but who knows.

bahahaha, you guys make me laugh. The fact that there is even a highDEA on this matter makes me laugh for a few reasons:
1.) LMAO, is there seriously someone that makes multiple accounts and up vote their own highness??? lmao, thats just sad.
2.) LMFAO, is there seriously someone that CARES ENOUGH that someone makes multiple accounts and up votes their own highness???
3.) The fact that this is a highDEA!

Eh, i don't care. It's a website for laughs and deep thoughts with your fellow weed smokers. Maybe the dude doesn't have anything else better to do besides entertain us.
For all i care, let the dude have his votes, it's not like he'll get famous from all this nonsense o.O

Lookalike Says:

This man is just not worthy of his name xD

I honestly DO care about this issue - it's not fair that stoners with original highDEAS have less chance of getting their stuff featured, just because this dude cheats and gets all of his crap published.

It's just plain irritating reading something a second time, just to realize it's been modified by someone who wants the credit themselves.

I knew the whole time. Never once fell for believing it was really him. Why would THE THOMAS CHONG, The kush master og, be wasting his time on this website.. The dudes old as balls for fuck sakes he probably hardly knows how ti work a computer. I'm not saying he can't but really I don't know any really old folks who spend a lot of time on a computer. Especially someone with a background like Thomas Chong.

 
 
Thu, 05/31/2012 - 6:38pm

I agree. I wish it were really him, but I never believed it. Anyone can put up a photo n use a famous name. This site is falling apart anyway, I only come on it so I have something to read while takin a shit at work

i saw him repeat another highdea, simply re-worded and got way more upvotes. The other kids post was a few months old... wish i remembered which one it was. something about leaving highdeas for good

i mean hell, he has a list of what he calls, "people that rock", which are most likely his other accounts. dont take my word on that, but it seems like a coverup

CaliVelvet Says:

I'm sure I'm not the first one to say that, and I'm sorry but, who honestly gives a flying shit?

If I've never seen those highdeas before and they entertain me, what does it fucking matter if it was actually Tommy Chong who came up with them or not? These little upvotes mean nothing, on the site or in real life. Why would he spend all that time to make sure the posts get popular? I'm sure he has a life; something you should invest in.

Guys, Guys, Guys. Everyone chill out and just take a hit from the bong. Everything in the world circulates, and the small stories need to get brought up somehow. If it wasn't for THOMASCHONG, I would not have heard any of the stories or things he has posted. Don't hate the messenger, and if it bugs you all so much just skip over his highneas. everyone take a chill pill and relax.

I thought anonymous votes came from people who just visit the site without signing in. I've gotten them before.
