I wasn't going to say anything because the grey has been so god-awful busy today, but what's the deal here? And can it stop?

I say we string him up by the wrists for being boring, then slather him in honey and leave him for the insects. But that's just me.

Well, let's wait until he's sober tomorrow.

Wait. We can post sober?

A search through his history--when, I assume, he is occasionally sober--reveals a history of similarly stupid one-line "jokes", including "the bitch was after his money" (in regards to kobe bryant) and other such comments.

If it was my conch shell he'd be gone.

"The hell with those bible loving, commie, loving niggers."

This is a bigger problem than the, "When I sober up..." stuff.

Who is responsible for these mysterious placeholders?
(sorry)

He's probably laying face down on his keyboard now. He'll be sure to post an apologetic reply.

I just don't know what to think about that.

including "the bitch was after his money" (in regards to kobe bryant) and other such comments.

If phrased more politely, a completely legitimate and defensible statement.

Jeez, you'd think that a drunk guy could come up with something more amusing.

What happened? I guess I missed something? Is it a condemnation of polical posts?

Thanks Matt.

Oh. Haha. It's all been deleted. Can someone relate the offense in some terms that would be educational / entertaining?

Yeah, I feel really left out right now. Was it just some new user who said some really anti-semitic stuff, or something more?
posted by interrobang at 9:11 PM on December 8, 2004


The user was WLW who posted several identical comments along the lines of "I'll post something nasty tomorrow when I sober up".

WLW = Witty Loves Dubya?

I just assumed it was business as usual.

I don't get it, TGC. Do you mean a particular person? You linked to four different FPPs by four different people. Or are you objecting to the "heavy" content of the ensuing threads?

Then mathowie: It has been stopped.

What has been stopped?

Is this thread another one of those "in-joke" thingies?

Move along, kiddo.

Davy: Read Cmonkey's post above. There were inappropo comments made, which have since been deleted by Matt, hence the links show nothing in particular.
