New Hope For The Enspamulated Commentariat

Are you one of the legion of blamers at whom the famously inept I Blame The Patriarchy spamulators have cried “Dee-nied, sucka!”? Good news. I’ve spent the whole morning handcrafting a new help page which offers advice on how to stave off the neuroses commonly associated with this painful psychical trauma. Just for you.

    Phil quit? QUIT? How could you?

  2. Twisty

    Phil was an unpaid intern, the ungrateful bastard.

    Every day you all give me cause to love the interweb tubes(not on a truck) and to send appreciative thoughts to Al Gore, who never claimed he invented it but did indeed take credit for helping it happen.
    Have you considered buying Phil a taco to lure him back to work?

  4. hedonistic

    I’m disturbed. That it even needed to be written, I mean.

    I’m torn between making that my official policy and knowing that people will take it personally if I do.

    Phil should be thankful he wasn’t a page.

    My comments are typically worth the paper on which they’re printed. Yet I’ve never been ensnared by the Enspamulator. Should I be insulted? I do strive for grammatical correctitude, because Twisty’s insistence upon same is part of what lured me here.

    OK, let’s try this as a test comment.

    I blame the patriarchy for the porn-happy mindset at Boing Boing, which has most recently manifested in a post on the sexiness of a cartoon woman in bondage:

    Recently the firewall at work (whence I blame the patriarchy) has been keeping me out of Boing Boing, which used to be lots of fun. Now I know why. I hate it when the firewall is a good judge of content.
