Pharyngula

It’s Molly time

It’s mid-November, so it’s time to suggest new inductees into the Order of the Molly. Leave comments in this thread naming your favorite commenters!

We do have a bunch of new people here, but please don’t even dream of nominating any from the influx of wacky denialists — it’ll make me grumpy.

    It seems like every time I see a comment by Sastra, I say to myself, “Who is this person, who knows so much of science?”

    (Okay, it’s not so much science in the technical sense as clear-thinking, but I needed to say science for the Monty Python reference.)

    Cuttlefish.

    While Cuttlefish deserves to win at least one more time, IMHO, this month I’m nominating Sastra and AJ Milne.

    More and more often, when I think, “Oh, I liked that, who wrote it?” and look at the bottom of the comment, I see “Sastra.” <---My vote.

    Yay! I can repeat last months wish list by cutting out already awarded Cuttlefish:

    windy and Sastra, I learn a lot from both, and have fun while doing it.

    I must admit that [Cuttlefish] and AJ Milne each has managed to tickle my fancy… or feet or whatever.

    Graculus, Steve Labonne and Dustin each deserves a Molly for constant high quality.

    Are you suggesting we wouldn’t like you when you’re grumpy? Anyway, I nominate Sastra.

    Sastra and Dustin.

    I’ve often thought Sastra should start his/her own blog, I enjoy reading his/her comments so much. They’re always insightful, on-topic, informative, and many times humorous.

    I nominate CalGeorge. He’s got passion and candor in those comments of his! Also he adds some interesting links in his comments that take me to places I would never otherwise visit.

    Cuttlefish

    Sastra. Everything s/he writes is interesting and insightfull.

    Sastra – always worth reading – clear, interesting, informed.

  16. #16 Sastra

    AJ Milne and/or Glen D.

    Dustin is way overdue.

    AJ Milne is up there quality-wise, but ?he posts far too little!

    Truth Machine for his tenacity/insanity in dealing with that kim character.
    Also Sastra and Glen D. for consistently excellent posts.

    Graculus and Steve Labonne rock my world. Besides, Dustin doesn’t wear a flag lapel pin, has his staffers ask questions during his town hall meetings, and once called Giuliani a bitch.

    Remember: a vote for Dustin is a vote for godlessness, debauchery and fornication.

    Yay! I vote for Dustin! Yay debauchery! Yay fornication! Yay godlessness!

  22. #22 Russell Blackford

    I’m all for the godlessness, debauchery, and fornication, but I can’t believe that none of the other candidates are able to provide it.

    I’ll await their electoral promises.

    Next by order of precedence: Rey Fox. Followed by Sastra.

    Dustin. He always makes me laugh.

    I like posters who have something original to say, say it well and provide sources and links. Glen D. qualifies on all counts.

    On another note, if he/she/it wasn’t deservedly banned, I’d vote for Caledonian, even though the old Scot wouldn’t have accepted the honor if he/she/it won. In Caledonian’s hands, misanthropy was an art form. . .

    Dustin, your last second pitch won me over. I vote for Dustin.

    Nurturing my inner groveling sycophant, I vote for Sastra

    (Every now and then even the most independent of people has to behave in a most sheep like manner. 🙂 )

    I’m all for godlessness, debauchery and fornication, but how do we know you’ll provide? I’ve been made many an empty promise. Still, it’s an awesome promise. Dustin has got my vote

  31. #31 MikeM

    Sastra.

    And I said that in my head before I even noticed a trend.

  32. #32 John Morales

    I don’t normally bother with these, but I think Sastra deserves it.

  33. #33 RamblinDude

    I came here to see if Sastra was in the running. No worries.

    Cal finally got banned? I missed that one. Explains his/her absence lately. Good show.

    Well, as usual, I can’t really disagree with the voting so far. So I’ll just put in my monthly vote for Kagehi. and maybe an honorable mention vote for Owlmirror.

    Rey Fox! About time he won a Molly.

    AJ Milne and Dustin.
