The Mega-Post is Dead


You should be able to view it again, but Masako had to shut off the comments at…


She had to delete one spam comment to get it viewable again (link).

Please, let’s hear a big round of applause for all of you who posted in the Mega-Post and kept it alive for a year and four months. Please use this comment thread to post your fondest memories of the post with the most…

  1. Hey, CARSistas. You lot only post in here, right? Because I think I’m going to lock down comments on all other posts. Let me know if there are any other posts you still want open. The comment spam is off the freaking hook. They’re now actually making reference to content of the post. (But all the comments are from Brazil.)

  2. Mr. Moltz, it is pointless for me to post on any other thread here, so I say go ahead and tidy up. Sorry for the mess.

    I find it interesting that well into the 21st century the spambots still can’t pass the Turing test. Brazilian or not, I’m not buying what they’re selling until they can convince me that they too are happy consumers.

  3. Yes indeed. O Mighty Overlord. We only post here. And not because we’re so dull even the spammers rejected us. That’s a ridiculous idea. WRONG! More fake news! Spammers are seriously over-rated. Nasty. You’re FIRED!

    PS: Thanks for maintaining our little nerd allotment.

  4. Dude, don’t reference them. I’m just going to delete them. That’s apparently my job now. For the rest of eternity. I wish I could deputize one of you but WordPress doesn’t have that ability I guess.

  5. I tried using a rubber on the screen but that didn’t work.

    I’d like to stress that ‘rubber’ means ‘eraser’ in Blighty.

    I’m not *that* excited about the reappearance of John on our board.*

    I would deputise Nxxx but he currently appears somewhat vexed so I fear putting a star on his chest and a gun in his hand may not be the best move.

    * This is a lie. I rillyrilly am.

  6. Our minute of fame, but vaguely remember “A Handful of People” as an English progressive rock group in the early 70s.

  7. Do you think those muppets ate our 2008-2010 content?

    If so . . . good luck with the bowels from here . . . dudes.

  8. Ugh. With all the other comments closed, there’s no other posts for them to wander into. Can we set a trap to drop them into the tunnels? That assumes that Del’s critters haven’t yet vacated or died off…

  9. I asked my friend Sherlock about the present infestation, and he noted that all the miscreants have one thing in common: their names appear as links to web sites. He said that if WordPress could filter out such, or if the Website field could be removed, then our pests could possibly be less of a hinderance. I pressed him for more specifics, but he said he wasn’t familiar with these new-fangled concerns and started muttering about Babbage’s difference engine and telegraph bandwidth.

  10. BroMu would not trust me with a gun?

    He is correct, my spectacles come from Xpxxsxvxrrx and barn doors are difficult targets at five metres.

  11. Hey, now John’s cleared out our new friends our posts make even less sense than the normal no sense.


    Or, as we say here in Blighty, bloomin’ marvellous.

  12. I’ve found that the discontinuities in our ongoing saga can be rectified by inserting a particular word (such as “pickle”)somewhere into each comment. Then it makes almost too much sense.

  13. I think you’ll find the more acceptable term now is ‘door assistant’, Ace. In the manner of a boxer being a ‘makeover assistant’. Pickle.

    Hang on, did I do that right?

  14. Woah, that’s some pretty good algorhythmia. Do you think she’ll stay and be our friend?

    We could throw a pickle party.

  15. John’s an awesome bouncer. Er, I mean door assistant. That was speedy. Pretty much as fast as I get ejected from social gatherings.

  16. Had to attend a political meeting yesterday,choosing councillor candidates for next May. None of them resembled The Donald and none of them condemned pickles.

    What went wrong?

  17. There are many obstpickles in the path of prospective councillors, Nxxx; maybe the more Don amongst them were simply put off?

  18. I must admit I have never won an election either. One year, however, I did place second in the race for Student Body President at my college and later ascended to that position after the original winner abdicated, or flaked out. I was more a clueless leader than a fearless leader, and there was no money in it, so based on my experience I can’t recommend politics to anyone that has any real skill or talent. Or pickles.

  19. To sweeten the pot, I will send a jar of pickles for the legitimate person Who posts comment number 7777, which might not be too far off, depending on how prolific we are.

  20. Do you think our previous chum may be Human . . . of flesh and blood he’s made? If so . . . ‘random’, as my daughter puts it all too frequently.

    I for one am up for the Ace challenge. Or would be, were I able to count that high. I get in a real pickle past thirty.

  21. I’m thinking that that commenter actually might be human, since the intended word “Whoa” was spelled “Woah,” which I think would be less likely from an erudite AI. However, if the AI was nurtured by a young dude, all bets are off, since GI=GO.

  22. They call this day “Black Friday” around here. I don’t observe or celebrate it (since that would probably require a monetary investment) but I recognize the right of those who do observe it to beat their heads against the wall.
