Peter Noone and the Internet
A cursory inspection reveals that Peter is a friend to all. However, Peter's friendliness seems to have backfired, and thus during flame wars, fucktards can often be found yelling at each other that "Noone likes you!" or "Noone asked for your opinion."
From "Noone wants to listen to your shit," to "Noone believes you for a minute," Peter somehow manages to become involved in every argument. The fact that Peter likes emo kids is the cause for a great deal of Internet angst; in fact, two out of every three cutter icons contain text to the effect of "Noone likes me." Why Peter's friendship, trust, or willingness to listen is viewed as a negative is not known. However, Internet evidence does point to Peter's involvement in the rape of a Japanese girl, which might explain why people don't want to be associated with him.
