    In the first 12 posts, 7 were from authors claiming to be "Nagesh".

    The problem with the Nagesh posts is not that they aren't funny (although they aren't), but that they are tedious and repetitive.

    But then again, tedious repetition of tired memes seems to be the norm here. Ho hum.

    "Rock ‘n’ Bowl": Looks more like a MS Word WTF to me: That stupid "smart quotes" feature "wins" again.

    "WiFi": "We don't understand your point sir. It's the standard password; and its just an acronym for 'The Wireless Access Thingy'."

    "Reward for crw32.dmp": Yes, there's a reward. If you can find the author ... and you get 7 billion free guesses!

    "Free Rover Puck": He should try for the discount. Better late than never, right?

    "Amazon:" So he's 1 4/7ths of the way through the 3 pages? What accuracy: They can show your position to the nearest 1/7th of a page!

    "Infinity GB/sec": Whoa! Where do I sign up for that connectivity!?!

    "Dark Side of the Moon": Send that line at the bottom ("Normal 0 false false...") to "author" for an additional reward!

    "HP": Wow! An uninitialized variable and a rounding error in the same code. What an accomplishment!

    You're wrong. A meme is an attempt (frequently failing as you can see) at being funny, not at being purely annoying.

    That would be a sphere, and spheres are round, but not all round things are spheres. Cylinders and circles are also round.

    I know, I know. I just wrote that it should be an apostrophe and not a quote, and then I recommended a kind of quote character. But the right single quote character is the closest thing in the character set to a real apostrophe. They are visually the same. The real apostrophe (right single quote) is preferred to the non-directional apostrophe (&#27;), which is still okay, but looks bland.

    Last I checked, having a circular cross-section at the equator would qualify the earth as round.
    Different definition than what I always thought it to be.

    I thought that each point on the circumference must be equal distance to the center.

    Surely round and spherical are two different things...

    Round is more general

    No. Both circular and spherical qualify as round (ever hear of a roundtable?). To say the earth is spherical would be incorrect, but looking at it from high above either pole one would clearly see that it is circular.



    Apart from all the lumpy and dippy bits, of course.

    Can we at least agree that the Earth is "sort of roundish"? If the original statement had been made using that sort of language, then the apocryphal ridiculing teacher would have had no leg to stand on, and the only subject of debate ought to have been the quality of the "sort" and the degree of the "ish".

    If, even upon suggestion by a pupil (probably primary-school; you would expect the subject to be taught correctly in a properly-structured geography syllabus in big school) that the Earth is "sort of roundish", the teacher *still* believes that the suggestion is laughable, then the education authorities in charge of that school ought to be alerted.

    In other words: video recording or it didn't happen.

    That song is epic, and the video is even better.

    Is that song of the same size as the Ylias? Or an ocean? Or a galaxy? I thought not. Hence it's not "epic". Please don't abuse that word when you just want to say you like it alot. Homeros is turning in his grave so many times nowadays due to the abuse of that word, that they can provide Greece with free power if only they'd stick a dynamo to his coffin.

    I understand your wanting to seem intelligent, but this is 2011. We do not find out what phrases actually mean; we assume we already know what they mean and use them accordingly. If this sort of thing continues, you might start thinking for yourself and the world would go to hell in a handbasket.

    That script was just the first attempt, whipped up in a couple of minutes. Of course it would greatly benefit from further refinement, but it is good enough for now (as it is, it already purges 18 "Nagesh"-es from the first page of comments to this article alone...)

    Actually I wasn't thinking about anyone in particular. Or maybe I was referring to Nagesh.

    You should really increase the vowel to consonant ratio in your name generator. Or shorten the name. Currently, a search for a string of 5 or more adjacent consonants in the name would match on about 98% of your random names, with few false positives (and any regulars, like trtrwtf, could easily be added to a white-list).

    Despite my inane comments, I only ever claimed to be clever in jest (if I did at all, I don't remember saying that). Nor did I ever believe that my ability to overcome filtering methods was bulletproof and the fact that you two are so eager to point out the obvious means of defeating it just makes you look like try-hards.

    Filtering based on content? Duh! Filtering the word "cocks" would catch 90% of my posts. Show me the javascript AI that simulates human revulsion to comments and I'll just play with that all day. It would be like what porn is to sex, which is, as I'm sure you know, good enough for me...

    By clever, I mean retarded. And by evil genius, I mean depraved, overweight and sexless teenager which his own parents are ashamed of.
    And I'll have you know I am not a teenager!

    If I thought it was bulletproof, why would I have agreed that it was easily circumvented?
    I was saying that I thought it was bullet-proof. I wouldn't think of falsely attributing to you my own thoughts and beliefs.

    The condescending attitude doesn't really work there.
    Sorry, I was going for sarcasm, not condescension.

    I really just prefer your method of heaping self-validating scorn on poor passers-by on the internet to his pretense of Enlightening Beam of Wisdom from Odin.

    Sure, I'm a retard. I'm a retard that consistently outsmarts you. (And corrects your spelling!)

    How long have we been doing this? I hope it never ends.

    hoodaticus? I don't know. Where has he been?

    I'm sad, 'cause one of the only ones who admitted to liking my sense of humor. I wish he'd come back.
    Hung like a mule, too. Maybe that's what I really miss.

    Right on cue.

    What's this? A puppet calling someone a puppet! Now that's comedy! Who was the first to sling insults again?

    I have all day to chat. I guess you do, too. Your time must be just as worthless as mine.

    Having a hard day at work? They have me chasing this stupid roundabout way of discovering an poorly-documented standard so we can implement it on the old version of our platform, which we're about to upgrade from. Fun.

    But on the other hand, I can act like it's taking lonher than it really is.

    I think he meant "...make doo...", referring to the shitty quality of his output.

    Steve The Cynic:
    And TRWTF today?

    In the first 12 posts, 7 were from authors claiming to be "Nagesh".

    The problem with the Nagesh posts is not that they aren't funny (although they aren't), but that they are tedious and repetitive.

    But then again, tedious repetition of tired memes seems to be the norm here. Ho hum.


    Which raises the question "Is tedious repetition of tired memes" itself a meme? And if so, once that meme becomes tired and tediously repeated, will we tear a new asshole in spacetime?

    I already answered that! In fact i answered it before you even asked the question!

    I agree with C-Octothorpe on this!

    Thank you for thinking of me. I'm pleased to see I've been assimilated into you and you will be able to carry on my legacy.

    Now that I've gotten to you, we can be together forever.
