Merry Mollydays!

It’s that time again … time to nominate your favorite commenters for the Order of the Molly. Leave a comment saying whose name you like to see popping up in the comments threads, a few words about why you think they’re molly-worthy would be nice, too, and on Sunday I’ll tally them up and bestow the honorable OM on someone. You can find links to previous nomination threads on the commenters page, if you want to see what deserving people were passed over last time.

    I would like to cast 1 vote against Caledonian. The reason, simply that he trolled me for being new.

    Please explain? You mean the thread where you advised him to accept the fact that not everyone believes in God?

    If so, I don’t think he trolled you. I don’t have an axe to grind, I don’t have a dog in this fight, I don’t have a bone to pick or a metaphor to flog, so FWIW, IMO:

    It was a simple misunderstanding on your part, and he toyed with you, rather gently, to the harmless amusement of just about everyone who knew the truth. I urge you not to take that (or this) as any kind of insult. Hey, navigating the ideological terrain around here is tricky enough without being expected to grok, at first sight, all the personalities involved, too. I doubt anyone was seriously whacking you for one misconception.

    Zeno: Diacriticals impress you? Hah! Ok then! I’d like to nominate myself for having a cool non-Anglo name (like Skatje) that’s even cooler by virtue of being commonly written in a completely different alphabet, and for not trying to capitalize on that meaningless fact in a cheap grab for some unwarranted recognition, and (unlike some people) for not transparently currying favor by name-dropping the daughter of the Bloglord.

    Errrm… On second thought, never mind. :-)

    I, too, would like to cast a vote for Mr. Diacritical, Torbjorn Larsson, not for any one post but for the overall excellence of his contributions. And his wit. And his cool name. And his hair. I bet he has nice hair.

    Torbjörn (sorry, Americans, but I have an Ö key on the keyboard), and Kseniya for comment 16.

    [Stands up behind keyboard, bows left and right.] Why, thank you, fans! [Sits down. Grabs coffee glas -its starting to get cold again.]

    This month my vote goes to Greg Laden. He writes interesting comments, he can make us smile, and he has taught us about using f-words.

    even when they’re not in heavy-metal bands

    Zeno, you should polish up on your Venn diagrams! How do you know I’m not in a band?

    (As it happens, I’m not. But I love to move to music so it happens that I listen to HM too. As long as it gets my groove on.)

    we need a bit more info on TL

    More? Um, let’s see, I’ve already mentioned elsewhere about my education and profession for the google-savvy. I can add that as a modern Swedish Swede I don’t wear hat – and it messes with my nice hair.

    This Törbjörñ Lârrrssssöñ character

    Oh, come on, you really wanted to write Thaurghbj@#&!rn Laaargh-sszzonn here. You can as well admit it.
