The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

5 July 2005

Brief interruption

We pause in this travel narrative to bring you the following announcement:

Anyone who uses the domain for online poker is doubly scummy and deserves to be crucified horizontally.

While rotating over a gas grill.

Can anyone recommend a marinade that attracts fire ants?

Addendum: The corksoaking iceholes struck again around noon. I am killing all pingability for anything posted prior to 3 July. If you actually link to one of the pre-WT05 stories, send me email and I'll put it in manually when I get a chance.

Another addendum: Courtesy of Fistful of Fortnights:

Comment Spam Mogul and admitted thief of blog content gets angry — when his blog suffers a spam attack.

Well then. Thanks to this fellow and his unsavory colleagues, bloggers must repeatedly scrape these barnacles from our blogs on a daily basis — if not more often. Now this poor guy expects sympathy?

I'll be happy to donate some wood for the crucifixion.

I had heard about porn sites 'squatting' on expired church sites, but this is a first for poker.

I don't feel quite so special anymore :-(

You know what I miss? The prom-dress spammer. That was vaguely amusing at least...
