Pharyngula

That’s what I must conclude from his recent post which is the outline for my entire damned blog. I may have to mockingly and provocatively respond, followed by promises of escalation of further actions of an obnoxious nature, culminating in outrageous climax that will trigger denunciations and many letters to the editor.

    This comment INSISTS that the post author just DOESN’T UNDERSTAND the issue despite the fact that THE BLOG AUTHOR has spent YEARS!!!! studying the topic at hand, while the comment author READ A BOOK by either an actor, a PRIEST, or DEEPAK CHOPRA which PROVES that the blog author SHOULD BE ARRESTED or DEPORTED and INSISTS that the comment author’s FREE SPEECH IS VIOLATED by anyone who disagrees, calls the post author a moron, questions the paternity of the previous commenter, DEMANDS ACKNOWLEDGMENT THAT JESUS LOVES YOU and that YOU WILL BURN IN HELL if you don’t accept him into your HEART (and possibly your ANAL CAVITY), and the blog author is just like HITLER!!!!ONE!!! It pretty much goes on like that for what should be ten PAGES of text with neither line break nor ONE BIT of sense, but I just don’t have the stamina to replicate that level of horseshit. Sorry.

    It then ends with “I forgive you” and misspells the blog author’s name, patronizingly declaring that the comment author will pray for you and melodramatically declares that the comment author will never return to this blog again. Ever. Right after the next three comments.

    This brief opinion piece employs archaic Latinisms and semi-redundant polysyllabic words in an attempt to appear to be a sophisticate who has benefited from close acquaintance with the Higher Education and thus conceal the truth that he (always a ‘he’) is a socially deficient, Christian home-schooled, narrow-minded autodidact. In other words, the comment is the work of just another godbotting troll who doesn’t know enough to know how ignorant he is.

    This comment is concerned about the other commenter’s tone. The comment continues on a bombast against the original post and present what appears to be outdated/irrelevant claims and fallacies.

    January 25, 2010

    This comment begins with the reasonable sound bite thanking the blogger for his thoughtful response elucidating his viewpoint. It segues into a grammatically correct, yet substantially unsatisfying generality.

    In the second paragraph, maintaining the complexity of speech that mimics highbrow learning and excessive politeness, this commenter nevertheless sneaks in a reference to the ontological proof of God, and without irony, to the admirability of Bill Dembski’s honor in practical debate.

    Just to cap it all off, arrogantly pretending that this commenter has not blatantly trolled, the comment ends with a kind word, that could also be read as a very backhanded compliment. Most readers will have realized the idiocy of the second paragraph, and so this commenter wastes his time on extra verbiage.

    This comment combines Christianity and offensive sexual behaviour in a bad poem e.g.

    Jesus Loves me this I know,
    For the Bible tells me so.

    Father Patrick loves me too,
    And exhorts me not to screw:

    “You must be pure” he says to me,
    As he gives my balls a squeeze.

    And thus upon his knee I sit,
    And though he prods me where I shit,

    I’ve learned that God’s my only friend,
    And gladly take it in the end.

    My way may be hard, dark and deep,
    And I may be a simple sheep,

    But Father Paddy’s there for me,
    And for my little sister Fee.

    Oh! the wonder of thought combined with language! Oh! the paucity of thought of communication of thought without language.

    The content of this comment is the importance of communication of the necessity of thought combined with language, initially oral then transmitted aurally but then internalized.

    this comment explaims that evoluiton could NOT have happened b/c evolution violates teh second law of thermodynamics and if we then came from moneys why is it that monkeys still exists. if the earth was millions of years old then we would be covered in fossils and yet the only fossils evoltuionists can produce is fakes like PILTDOWN MAN that the scientists accpeted for a long time even after it was shown by creationists to be fake. The evolutionist also have tough time explaining the origin of the universe. As laid out it in Genesis[1] we know that God was responsible for the creation of mankind. Evolutionists however would have you believe that complex structures such as the eye merely popped into existence randmomly [2]. We Christians know that everything came into being by the divine hand of the Lord. ha ha! no, there no proof for evolution whatsoeevr and it just a religion by evolutionists that worships the three gods of darwin, dawkins and pz meyers. the articles of faith of this religioin is taht everything just came about randomly.. i don’t have that much faith to be an athiest!! God creatd everything like bible sez.

    This comment thread begins when a vet takes issue with PZ’s criticism of the way the politicians have been deploying the troops.

    Other commentators rush in to assert their ‘vet’ status so they can disagree. Soon people’s patriotism is being questioned.

    Opportunistic non-American commentators seize the opportunity to put the boot into US foreign policy.

    The American commentators who were originally at loggerheads suddenly discover unity in the face of adversity and stick up for policies and practices they deplore.

    The Noo Zillunders, comfortable with their profound insignificance on the world stage, wander off in search of woolly girlfriends.

    The Australians stick around, trying to look important, but nobody notices them.

    This comment wonders why Professor Meyer has to be so mean to catholics, and in a flush of white hot fatwa envy, erroneously bets Professor Meyer “wouldn’t dare say the same things about moslems”.

    This comment wishes everyone could see how hard it is cackling in delight that its fellow Pharyngulites are savvy enough to engage in a duel of John Waters quotations, and how sad it is that Pikachu still needs to be initiated into The Glory That is Divine.

    It also reminds you that, along with Chiclet and Concetta, it still robs houses.

    This comment wishes to remind Josh that he can’t go to school because it said so. It won’t have him nagging it for lunch money and whining for help on his homework. There is no need to know about presidents, wars, numbers or science. Just listen to it and he’ll learn. And no little friends over here, repeating rhymes, asking flippant questions, and talking in those nagging baby voices. Can’t he just sit here and look out into the air? Isn’t that enough? Does he always have to badger it for attention?

  273. #273 Josh, Official SpokesGay
    January 26, 2010

    This comment apologizes to the other Pharyngulites, for whom this quote-off must be getting tedious. It notes, however, that it can go all night, and that no man, woman, or beast can win at this game with this comment. This comment, you see, is hopped up on little mascara brushes and liquid eyeliner (it had some orally earlier).

  274. #274 S Petersen

    January 26, 2010

    Just listen to it and he’ll learn.

    This comment is not interested in hearing about Presidents, numbers, wars, or science. But it must say, in all honesty, that it wishes you could see it guffawing so hard it’s spilling expensive wine out of its nose, and wondering why it never encounters such top quality fellow comments in its usual social venues. It is most supremely pleased, this comment.

    It also notes that its friend Chiclet is glad she had an abortion.

  276. #276 yolande

    January 26, 2010

    This comment pedantically points out that this sort of thing isn’t particularly original.

    This comment also wonders if this is the song that #227 was were thinking of.

    This comment closes by admitting that the commenter is a total sucker for this sort of thing, really, but resists the urge to look up and link to the “This American Life” segment that ALSO does more or less the same thing.

  279. #279 Doktor Zoom

    “Nothing could be sweeter than my sweetie when I eat her in the moooorning.”

    This comment wishes to disclaim any accusations of heterosexuality. The reader is solely responsible for whatever prurient and unnatural interpretation he/she brings to this artistic performance.

    Mainly, this comment is engaged in Battle to the Death with RickR, which it finds most exhausting. If RickR would simply capitulate, and agree to marry this comment, we could all conclude this exhausting display.

  284. #284 ~Pharyngulette~
    January 26, 2010

    This comment haughtily and snarkily suggests that two other recent commenters “get a room, already, you two”, as if there was a worldwide shortage of blog post stationery. It then goes back to its usual lurkdom.

    This comment repeats a point made earlier and far more eloquently by someone else, but the commenter is unaware of this because he got tired of reading the comments around #30 or so and just couldn’t wait to have his say.

  299. #299 WowbaggerOM
    January 26, 2010

    This comment argues that the word ‘comment’ doesn’t mean what you think it means, and the fact that people can’t agree on what the word ‘comment’ means is evidence that the Christian god (and only the Christian god) exists.

    This comment indicates that I am “one of you”. This comment then indicates I am concerned about part of what we stand for. This comment leads to a sinking feeling that you are about to get concern trolled.

    This quote is presented

    This sentence proves that you are being concern trolled and that the quote given is an incorrectly attributed quote mine. This sentence shows that I don’t know how to logically structure an argument. This sentence shows that I think I have concluded wittily but leaves your head spinning at my utter fucktardedness.

    This comment racks its brains trying to think where Chris Clarke might have got the idea from, and eventually speculates diffidently that Douglas R Hofstadter might have had something to do with it. It continues with a cliche about the lack of novelty in the vicinity of the local star. It ends in spectacular anticlimax.

    This comment pastes a comment they posted from the blog originally linked to, in a sickeningly ingratiating attempt to prove that the commenter has a wry sense of humour.

    This comment uses the word ?loose? as in ? I don?t want to loose my keys? and then inexplicably uses ?lose? as in ?my trousers are too lose?

    What?s up with that?

    This comment also uses the internet acronym ROFL.

    (That is really weird.

    I was thinking “I’m going to post something that doesn’t start with ‘this comment…'”

    I started to scroll down, to get to the leave a comment button.

    As I did that, I thought “what should my comment be? How about ‘FISH!'”

    I then momentarily stopped, and saw #162.

    “unzip, strip, touch, finger, grep, mount, fsck, more, yes, fsck, fsck, fsck, umount, sleep”

    This comment explores boring new ways of representing way excessive amounts of laughter typographically. Most of them are very repetitive.

    It then goes on to cite some fairly obscure and marginally relevant saying from a TV series or comic or something.

    This comment demands a replacement irony meter, and a new keyboard.

    January 26, 2010

    This comment demands a replacement irony meter, and a new keyboard.

    This comment hastily retracts the those demands, acknowledges that the irony meter must have been broken already, apologizes profusely, and slinks away.

    This comment is sniny.

  361. #361 tsg
    January 26, 2010

    This comment misses an in-joke and attempts to correct it in a condescending and failed attempt at humor.

    This comment isn’t the greatest comment in the thread. This comment is a tribute to the greatest comment in the tread.

    This comment reveals shitless fear of teh ebil homersexual agenda. It goes on to point out there has even been a comment in this thread that actively and explicitly promotes it!

    This comment notices the meta-meme between this post’s comments and the linked post’s, and also nominates PZ Myers to a poll he is not part of. Ideally one with women. Since he looks good photoshopped with a dress.

  365. #365 apostrophobia
    January 26, 2010

    This comment contains grammar pedantry and points out comment 349’s (and another one, buried earlier) misuse of the contraction “it’s” for the possessive “its.” This commenter apologizes for the pedantry but cannot help itself.

  366. #366 otrame
    January 26, 2010

    This comment worries that all the excitement on this tread has slowed the progress on the endless thread and accuses someone non-specific but probably religious of doing it on purpose.

    This comment is very confused. This comment wonders if a homersexual is someone who is attracted to homers, be it the blind poet, people routing for the home team or Simpson.

    This comment reveals the cluelessness of this commenter about this entire string of “this comment…” comments.

    This comment is tired of Teh Evil Homosexual Agenda being SHOVED down it’s THROAT.

    This comment tells the joke about a guy who was stranded on a rooftop during a flood and prayed for God to rescue him again.

    This comment crows smugly at the deep rifts in the atheist movement due to the imminent abandonment of evilution by TRUE SCIENTISTS and ends with “God Bless you”.

    This comment is made by someone who insists that he cannot comment on this blog because the blog owner has banned him.

    This comment expresses shock at the contents of many of the previous comments, resulting in flustered pearl clutching and necessitating the use of the fainting couch.

    This comment sneaks a tangential Zappa reference into the discussion.

    This comment suggests that the software used to run the blog commit a physically-impossible sexual act.

    This comment whines about the joke getting so old that it’s like beating a dead horse and ironically, in so doing, beats the dead horse yet another time.

  391. #391 Rorschach
    January 27, 2010

    This comment remarks on the fact that PZ Myers posts comments on his blog at 3 am. The comment then goes on to point out the effect of trips to California on middle-aged men whose Trophy Wife’s are stuck in a blizzard with Lutheran ministers.
    The commenter then ducks and runs.

    This comment is REALLY late to the party because the poster only has email access at work and is a shift worker. However because they haven’t posted for several days, they must put their two cents in even though the boat has long sailed.

    This comment is from a commenter who has read the thread and decided not to comment…

    …Damn!*

    Unnecessarily signs comment off with name

    *Commenter’s favourite thing, a footnote, used to draw attention to lame, old and deliberately forced joke. The commenter is here all week, suggets you try the veal and tip the serving person of either sex whether or not they are also a commenter.

    This comment doesn’t care that the comments were closed, because it needs to take comment #393 and smack it upside the head.

  399. #399 Owlmirror
    January 31, 2010

    This comment comes in days after every other commenter has moved on, copies some of the text of a prior comment and pastes it in, and has a URL pointing from the commenter’s name to a website that sells some product that the commenter desperately wants you to buy.

  400. #400 Owlmirror
    January 31, 2010

    This comment, noting the previous comment in the sidebar, comes to the thread, ignores the blatant and obvious spam of the comment just prior, but takes angry issue with one of the previous comments above, and leaves a long harangue as a reply.

  401. #401 Dania
    January 31, 2010

    This comment notes the spammish nature of #399 and asks PZ to ban its author.
