1. Political Comment Spamming Strikes Us!

    Karl Rove's rogue mobs are attacking our site. One of his foot soldiers has made it to our little, Google-friendly blog. He cuts and pastes pre-made (probably not by himself, even) propaganda and posts it on totally unrelated blog posts, and then signs the huge, long thing:

    Richard Stewart
    22517 Winchester Dr
    Elkhart, IN 46514

    He's posted (and we'll delete) in "NPR and web standards" and "FOX News sues Franken".

    I've emailed him the following:

    Stop comment-spamming us. You're type of comment spam is the most un-American type. Ever heard of freedom of speech? You have an opinion? Start your own weak-minded, Google friendly blog, and stop fucking with ours.

    What do you think? Leave a legit comment below. We never delete on-topic comments, even if we disagree with them. See our Livestrong bracelet barter thread for proof. (FYI currently 3rd on Google for "livestrong band")

      If you can read, then read the dammed thing. If you can, it must have hit�a�nerve?

      If you do not like my writing then I have acheive my goal. The truth hurts only those who live a lie. �

      If your ideas were legit, you wouldn't have to comment spam to get them published.

      I concur

      I'm gonna have to side with Brian on this. There were multiple posts and they were off topic. We're not actively trying to censor anything.

      no. those who live a lie are not hurt by the truth. they may be annoyed by it or inconvenienced by it, but the truth only hurts those who care about the truth.

      but goof for you, richaaard, it’s nice taht you acheive yor goal.
