Pathetic little troll
: There is a pathetic little troll I banned who is coming into various posts typing “poop” and snickering like the first grader he is. This the guy who has the bad taste to call himself Gandhi. He went overboard once too often. If he had taken his meds and behaved, I might have let him back. But instead, he went on a “poop.” So intelligent. So mature. So friggin’ pathetic. He is no longer welcome here. Just to the kind of guy I am, I’ll link to him here so you can go read his fine prose in his house. And my advice to him: Get a life. But get your meds first.
: Just Barking Mad uncovers the whole conspiracy.
: UPDATE: I continue to play wack-a-mole with this little boy with no life. And to answer his
questions stupid innuendo: I have no financial relationship whatesoever with anyone he lists (apart from making contributions to SoA… and he doesn’t seem to understand that so I’ll make it clearer: no one but my employer pays me); I’ve explained many times that ITM are the friends of one of the early bloggers in Iraq with whom I communicated; I never heard of the other organizations he tinfoil-hats about; and I do still wish this poor, pathetic little troll would get his meds.
GoogleNews II: What’s missing?
: Below, I ask you to list questionable/wacky/offensive sites included in GoogleNews. Here, I ask you to nominate sites that are not included but should be. Please leave comments on this post.
GoogleNews: Whose news?
: Let’s start reporting on GoogleNews. As you find questionable sites scraped by Google, please list them in the comments on this post. See post below on Google’s nazi site. If Google isn’t transparent, let’s report on Google. Obviously, we won’t all agree on what’s questionable but let’s use our collective effort and wisdom to judge GoogleNews’ judgment. I’m not suggesting that there should be an orthodoxy of news or certification of news, but some of these sites are just ridiculous.
Case in point:
Geologists in the East and West coasts are busy understanding a new theory that shows possible underground UFO bases all around the world….
According to this theory, the UFO bases need to be deep under the ground because the UFO crafts need to be close to the mantle of the earth. Servicing of these crafts can be done in that electromagnetic environment only.

: Engadget reports that iPods are banned in a school as antisocial. My son just told me that in his school all the kids bring iPods to lunch but — get this — they’re not allowed to bring books to lunch. Now, to be reasonable, I’m assuming that’s because books are big and clunky and iPods aren’t. Time to digitize the textbooks (and lighten those backpacks!). [via InstaPod]
: The judge refuses order that Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube be reconnected.
One moral to this story: You can’t game the system. After all the grandstanding in Congress and at the White House and on TV news, it still came down to one judge charged with following the law. It’s a system and most of the time, it works. If you don’t like the outcome, that doesn’t mean you can win by gaming the system.
