It's a real pity I never get the chance to physically abuse wannabe-astroturfers. It's probably a sign that there is no God.

So... All those SEO types in the "Fifty Most Influencial Bloggers" list, they basically do what that douchebag did?

I don't know if you're talking about NewIQ's or yhbc's, but either way I completely agree.

I was actually referring to NewIQ's, but I agree with you as well.

Wow - if there were a hall of shame for self posts, this would be the piece de resistance.

Even though I had nothing to do with it and didn't even see the FPP, this fills me with a warm glow of satisfaction.

I am easily amused.

Postin' self pro-mo-tion
I fought the mods and the mods won
I fought the mods and the mods won

I needed traffic 'cause I had none
I fought the mods and the mods won
I fought the mods and the mods won

I self-linked on MetaFilter and now I'm banned
That's how the site is run
I wanted to promote my crappy ad
I fought the mods and the mods won
I fought the mods and the mods won

Mathowie swung the hammer of ban-in-na-tion!
I fought the mods and the mods won
I fought the mods and the mods won

My last post's gonna be "It's Been Fun!"
I fought the mods and the mods won
I fought the mods and the mods won

My account is locked and my links are dead
I guess I have been shunned
I'll go spam Digg or BoingBoing instead
I fought the mods and the mods won
I fought the mods and the mods won

Especially not cool since Bob from accounting was found dead last week. That was just poor taste.

With bannination at these superlight velocities we would actually have to send the pitchforks BACK IN TIME in order to be able to brandish them in a menacing fashion.

Won't somebody think of the pitchforks?
