lend me your haunting stares...
I come to bury pudge, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones..

Be that as it may, I do humbly request that you not ever mod him down. In fact, just the opposite, always mod up. In this little way you can attract more attention to him. And that is what is needed.

You've got to see the show,
it's a dynamo...


Journal Journal: So.. pudge

Do you know what "public accommodation" means?

I'll try to explain it in the simplest, nicest possible way:

Basically it means, Fuck you.

United States

Journal Journal: Rand Pudge says' "I am not a racist!" but...

He makes outrageous statements denying the distinction between biological inheritance and one's chosen profession to "prove" that everybody else is... His peculiar rendition of the world around him is absolutely captivating.. this time.. Much more interesting when he's all evangelical 'n shit.. Keep on tryin', buddy.. Some day you just might convince me..


Journal Journal: Not trying to imply anything

But sometimes I wonder if Einstein would sneak into Turing's lab and post a great big piece of paper on his bulletin board (or black board) with, "YOU'RE A FUCKING HOMO!" on it, and then Turing would do the same... back and forth this would go, for decades...

Considering the extent of what i"m seeing, I have a very hard time believing these aren't scriptbots. It's simply too much effort for an actual human.. For instance, this:

Why doesn't Pudge point a critical finger at himself for a change? Why can't Pudge simply enjoy the fruits of his own labors and let other people enjoy the fruits of theirs? And how can we break Pudge's hypnotic spell over unctuous paper-pushers? This letter is not the place to explore the answers to those questions. Its purpose is instead to fight the warped, distorted, misshapen, unwholesome monstrosity that Pudge's principles have become. Let us note first of all that Pudge is firmly convinced that it is not only acceptable but indeed desirable to feature simplistic answers to complex problems. His belief is controverted, however, by the weight of the evidence indicating that Pudge exhibits an air of superiority. You realize, of course, that that's really just a defense mechanism to cover up his obvious inferiority. Still, the issue of what to do about Pudge's unpleasant mind games is far from settled. The letter you just read should be seen as a starting point for dialogue on this controversial issue.

Totally automatic. I am very intrigued by the accuracy of this particular one though

And on the seventh day, He exited from append mode.
