One of the nice things about low traffic June 15, 2006

Posted by Administrator in Blogging.

. . .is being able to manage comments at leisure.  Including putting in an extended queue comments from anonymous contributors whose IPs are in Virginia but then claim to be from Canada, and then mysteriously fail to respond to e-mail summons.

Dear Sophist:  If you wish your comments to be retrieved (and I DO have them in all their adolescent glory, untouched), let's see some proof that you really did leave a valid e-mail.

1. I never claimed to be in or from Canada. Canada.com gives out free email addresses, and I have one. Anything else you infer from that limited pool of data is your problem.

2. I’ve never been to Virginia. This post is being typed in Washington state. King county to be precise. So your ip-foo be all out of wack and stuff. Again, not my problem.

3. Excuse the heck out of me for being away from the computer and not being able to come running the moment you snapped your fingers. I’ll try not to let it happen again.

1. Unusual for folks to go to Canada.com for e-mail. But, given you’re modeling long-dead and not-well-respected ancient Greek philosophers, I guess anything is possible.

2. *shrugs* go with what data is there.

3. Good.

Also re: #2, since King County is almost single-handedly responsible for making Washington a blue state (especially in terms of the governor’s office) I would say that you probably fit right in over there.

“Unusual for folks to go to Canada.com for e-mail.”

No more unusual than going to any other site that provides the same service.

You know, it’s too bad the site that was providing my iraqimail.com addy is no longer extant, because your reaction to that would have been even more amusing.

Anyway, next time I would suggest doing the thirty seconds of googling it takes to find out that Canada.com gives out free email accounts before attributing nefarious motives where none exist.

Of course, actually visiting Canada.com doesn’t give a ready indication that they do provide e-mail. But, don’t let that get in the way of your feeling superior.
