Check it out.

PZ Myers

When I see John in LA, should I remind him to feel very, very guilty about abandoning his babies?

belle waring

oh, sure. no, actually, you can remind him I'm jealous he's meetng the famous PZ Meyers;)

Jessica

Those little girls should be a handful hope to see you back here soon.

Is that a person, or scarily sophisticated spam? No, it's gotta be a person.

"Is that a person, or scarily sophisticated spam? No, it's gotta be a person."

You say that is if there were some reason it isn't both, when it obviously is. Are you unaware of the huge number of spam firms paying people to go around and manually post spam like the above?

At the risk of sounding gullible: Really? (I mean, I figure you're kidding, but I'm just not sure.)

Matt Weiner

I've definitely had legitimately relevant comments on my blog with spam URLs.

Matt Weiner

Though in this case I suppose it's entirely possible that the spammy URL just happens to belong to some friend of Belle's.

jholbo

I assume you got the message, honeybunny. I got into Boston fine. I'll call you later.

PZ Myers

I thought I was going to be meeting the famous Holbo! I will tell him it would have been nice to have also met the fabulous Belle.

ben wolfson

How awesome would it have been if John posted the above comment with a spam URL? My thesis: very awesome.

belle waring

wolfson: agreed. totally fucking awesome.

Gary Farber

"At the risk of sounding gullible: Really? (I mean, I figure you're kidding, but I'm just not sure.)"

I'm not kidding in the slightest.

belle waring

in some ways, that would be a pretty cushy job, but I can't imagine it pays all that well...

Ha! Jessica at Sex Toys strikes again at Trish Wilson's blog (first comment).

  • Confused by our comment policy?

    We're testing a strong CC license as a form of troll repellant. Does that sound strange? Read this thread. (I know, it's long. Keep scrolling. Further. Further. Ah, there.) So basically, we figure trolls will recognize that selling coffee cups and t-shirts is the best revenge, and will keep away. If we're wrong about that, at least someone can still sell the cups and shirts. (Sigh.)
