So last night, as I slept, with visions of sugarplums dancing in my head [Did not. You had an odd dream involving Adam Guettel, Justin Timberlake, tiny ladders, and the Japanese language. -- Ed.
They weren't supposed to know that. How did you
know that? I'm Ed. I know all, see all. And I agree - Adam Guettel IS hot.
] two friendly neighborhood trolls lumbered into my comments section.
The first is my good friend James. Our witty repartee can be viewed here.
The second, and this is the one I'm considering deleting, is far less unfriendly. It's just some blogger who has decided to reproduce his entire post, with conspicuous link to his own blog, in the comments of a completely unrelated post of mine. I'm not going to link to it, largely because it's likely to be deleted any minute anyway, and also because I don't believe in giving this guy free advertising.
So now's a good time to reiterate my comments policy. The general policy is, in the immortal words of my friend Andy, "Guys, don't be fuckheads, okay?"
Personal attacks will only be tolerated as far as I find mocking your stupidity amusing.
Using me for self-promotion will not be tolerated.
Comment spam will be blocked.
Dissent is accepted, unless you're annoying. Friendly dissent, rather, is accepted. Hostile dissent isn't. If you'd like to be hostile, go get your own blog.
UPDATE: Ron F.? Honey? I'm referring to you here.
For those of you following along at home, Ron, of underthenews.blogspot.com (which I'm not going to link out of respect for the delicate ecology of the delusion which is the blogosphere), has repost the 'comment' he left earlier, which was essentially an entire post from his own blog, complete with link, naturally. Or rather, it was trying to be a whole post, but Haloscan, mercifully, has character limits. Now, the interesting thing here is that Ron posted this to my "explain how someone's 1/3 Irish" post, not my "racial issues" post, which would be the 'appropriate' (were that it were appropriate to post one's entire post in a comment, which it isn't) place to put it. And after I deleted the first one, (and added this post), he put his comment BACK on the unrelated post. It's going to be deleted again.
Ron, just a heads up. You're one repost away from a) banning and b) being named the Official Resplendent Mango Fuckhead of the Day.
FURTHER UPDATE: James, however, is definitely still competing for the title. Stay tuned. Who will win? Only time can tell.
FINAL UPDATE: The profanity in the headline has been modified because apparently it was offending the delicate sensibilities of my mother.
