And I managed to also get two callout links for the price of one.

econous is a weird persona. Drops a lot of very odd, surreally provocative if not particularly constructive one-liners in threads here and there—as if vying for reaction and attention of a sort they can't quite even explain—but elsewhere engaging in completely reasonable, lucid conversation. There's a degree of casual confidence about it that screams sock to me, but that's about as far as I can take it.

The comparison to thomcatspike has been made at least once, and occurred to me independently as well.

That said: wither? whence? Are we defending dogs' collective honor here?

Saying econous is a blaspheming baiter is so December 2006.

Enough alliteration already. It's like being sequestered with Stephen Stills.

I think it's just rude to accuse someone of being a sock puppet without evidence.

I really don't think we need to start enforcing sharia on the blue.

Fuck this callout. What MeTa fans really want to see is the Iron Lizard/Iron Rat/Iron Wolve metal animal throwdown and memorial battle. WHICH FERROUS FERAL FORM WILL BE THE LAST STANDING?

I do have an integral dignity. It helps to differentiate me.

I want to make some sort of contribution to this thread that will stand the tests of time, but I fear that it's beyond me. Such is life.

I want to take a test to see if I have a life, but I fear that it's beyond me. Such is the universe.
