A couple years ago my friend Colin was all upset that he had never been given a proper nickname. So we were like "Okay Colin, we'll indulge you. Come up with a nickname and then we'll all make sure it sticks."

So he deliberated for a about five minutes, and then looked up with a smile and got our attention, and pronounced "From now on, I shall now be known as C-MAN!!!"

One of the biggest mistakes of his life.

Man, those jamon people. They really, really want to spam Metafilter. It's ridiculous. I didn't even know that account was related to the previous ham spam, but with the previous ham spam the dude who made the post got banned and then signed up like FOURTEEN MORE TIMES all at once until Matt and pb had to hack in some super specific thing to block him from signing up.

And then it looks like he's signed up a couple more times since; we've got another not-obviously-related account that I'm pretty sure is in fact related, aside from this one that just got banned.

If there's this like army of clueless but utterly dedicated ham spammers out there, I don't know whether to laugh or cry or what.

Oh man, doing a little due diligence to make sure there weren't any other previous links in comments to that site, I found that dude had tried and failed to make a link in one of his mustache comments, which were weird and wtf but also sort of wonderful as found art and so I didn't delete them.

So he had a little href wrapped around nothing. I honestly don't know what google would make of that in terms of indexing, though I imagine it wouldn't look too highly on it given the obvious potential for abuse.

You could mount it on the ham spam ban cam stand.

I'm not sure I'm willing to subscribe to your ham spam ban cam stand plan.

That's bad manners. Like whispering in company.
I think it was something about a posterial cortex.

that's my rather roundabout attempt of making a butts-lol joke in honour of the anniversary celebrant

Happy Birthday Cortex! Whoohoo! Wishing you a very happy neocortical year.

Well, this is all well and fine, but do you know WHO ELSE WAS BORN on April 26?

That's right. Giorgio Moroder. I'll be putting out fires with gasoline all day in your honor, cortex!

I dunno. How do we KNOW it's his birthday? Why won't he show us his birth certificate? Who are you really, Mr. Millard?

Between this thread and facebook, I got inspired to record a birthday song.

Happy birthday. I was going to get you a ham, but now it seems redundant.

Happy Birthday Cortex!

Yay! Happy Birthday Cortex!

Weird. I read this as "fed up" being an imperative command, and possibly somehow short for some form of "federal", and was like, "I have no idea what this means."

Happy belated birthday, cortex!

I found that dude had tried and failed to make a link in one of his mustache comments, which were weird and wtf but also sort of wonderful as found art and so I didn't delete them.

I had this sentence running around in my head a bit all day yesterday, and I just want to say that I feel incredibly lucky to be a part of an Internet community where a rogue comment's "wonderfulness as found art" counts in the "keep it" column of the deletion equation. Thank you, thank you, thank you cortex (and all the mods) for making this place what it is.

Oh! Late! but Happy late birthday! Thanks for the moderating and also the music. (It's your fault that YEARS LATER I still sing "Woman attacks dog breeder with body of dead chihuahua" randomly and get weird looks from coworkers...I've put it on mixtapes. (also stay the fuck in line and that one about VP Cheney accidentally shooting someone)
