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. ‘Appy ‘Alloween to our cousins.

    ‘Appy Brexit to the Brits.
    Sorry, got that wrong, just a Broken Promise Boris. Hope he doesn’t clog up many ditches. Noticed during Prime Minister Questions that his comb over no longer hides his bald spots, which means that Donald J’s is better.

  2. Thank you for your post. Seeking accurate information is one of the biggest concerns for the younger generation. Thank you for generating high-quality
    content. There is so much information and much more advertisements online that it is
    actually tough to find worthy and relevant info. Nowadays, no one visits libraries
    where you can find primary sources. In the digital world, you perform

  3. Not sure the former poster is on-message with our current stream of waffle. Not that the younger generation is really our target market.

    How come spammers can find their way here but not any of our erstwhile chums (who clearly still lurk, as the recent frenzy on the main site indicates).

    It’s almost as if they don’t appreciate our content? Shurely shome mishtake?

  4. What an outstanding post, thank you a lot for
    rising this issue. Being deeply reassured that a great deal of folks would
    share your perspectives, and I even showed your writing
    into a close friend of mine. And that’s when the arguments began…
    We have various opinions but, needless to say, no matter, be it only something regular or really important,
    should ruin a real friendship. In my humble view, which surely has
    the right to exist, the very point you’ve made
    cannot be contested.

  5. Yeah, I thought we trended generally downwards, in the direction of the gutter.

    Then again, I’m not a bot programmed in a second language…

  6. When I was a typesetter in ancient times, we called that sort of thing “boilerplate” or “greeking.” Occasionally someone would forget to replace the dummy copy with the actual article or story.

    1. Ace,
      On this side of the pond, all of our “Greeking” was in Latin. Wonder why? Also suspect you are too young to have been around during the hot lead, there’s a typesetters’ joke in there, period.

  7. Well, this substance has just blown my mind!
    So many intriguing facts and crucial instances
    that I am astonished and extremely satisfied with the information you give us.
    The topic is burning as well, therefore I suggest I will examine it
    two. Last but not the least is I can share
    this info with buddies of mine and get their pleasure from the given substance also.
    Allow such advice be!

  8. Thank you for sharing this precious info with us. As a practicing writer, I can say I was attempting to incorporate a few facts and sparking ideas in my writing practice intuitively.
    I think it’s crucial to spice your writing if you would like to
    catch the viewers’ interest. But you did great, thanks

  9. I am so glad I came across the post! It took weeks to search for
    the information you have mentioned previously and it is a real blessing
    to find someone as enthusiastic about this topic as myself.
    What I’m trying to convey is the significance of this problem cannot
    be hesitated. People who increase it are worth appreciation despite
    the fact that I, personally, don’t completely share
    your own views. Anyway, thank you for sharing your expertise!

    1. BroMu,
      Ace bears Xacto scars and mine are from scalpel blades.

      It was punishing work in the Tech Publishing industry unlike school teaching.

      Second thoughts, Gravesend / Erith? Maybe you’ve got knife wounds too.

  11. I have often wanted to clarify myself…

    “The Invisible Man has arrived, sir – may I show him in?”
    “Tell him I can’t see him!”

  12. Hey, that sounds somewhat like an actual comment made in real time by a conscious entity, but it seems unlikely that a conscious entity would consider the preceding “ideas” to be worthy of such gratitude. Thus, I am not compelled to click the bolded name. The Turing prize goes unawarded, and we’ll just have to hope for something more vivacious.

  13. I’ve never had that called ‘ideas’ before. Although it is true that I talk out of my . . . ‘clarification tube’.

  14. I was searching for that subject for a couple of
    days across the nest, however there was not anything
    precious. So pleased to attain your post in the end. I am keen on that subject, and I want to be
    constantly aware of the latest news.

  15. I have exactly the identical opinion. You can not imagine what a terrible process of studying is!

    Mainly if you are both working and going to college. I had serious
    problems with my professors since I wasn’t on time with
    my jobs. Due to one of my co-students, that delivered me
    a, I knew about the essay writing support, along with my life altered completely.

    For reasonable money, they assisted me with my burning tasks,
    and I received a grade A for the very first time in forever.
    I firmly graduated, and today I recollect those days with joy.

  16. Great composed, what’s your secret? I am still searching for my own style.
    Whenever you’re studying in the college, it appears just like you should be ideal
    in everything. By phycology to faith science . Every subject must compose essays.
    Eventually, it takes a enormous quantity of time and energy.
    Obviously, it would be fascinating if the topic is all about my specialization, but generally,
    it’s different. So that the most important thing that I come up that boost my
    productivity would be to use this support for writing my own documents I utilize this period for
    things that I enjoy, learning new languages, programming.
    It will help me to go deeper to my education, I find a part-time job which helps me to cover those expenses.
    My schooling grows more joyful and productive.

  17. Ahh, English as a second or third language, I’m guessing … I would write an essay on the subject if I only knew how to go about it. Oy vey!

  18. I think we may actually be making First Contact here. Where are these ‘signals’ from? The only problem will be convincing the Nobel jury that it’s actually *intelligent* life.

  19. But, despite the source of these, I think I would like to attain a post.

    Though I’m more likely to obtain a fence post. Or post a parcel, etc.

    1. If there were any powers vested in me, I would appoint you to the post of sergeant-at-arms or bouncer, charged with keeping the riff-raff out.

  20. Vests have never been off-trend, Steve. Like tank-tops. And flares.

    Timeless, my friends.

    As the looks I get as I strut along the street would seem to testify.

  21. I’m without a vest at present, but I will consider acquiring one after the Apple Pocket Watch is released. It will pair well with the Apple monocle, as well.

  22. To drastically change the subject here: has anyone else noticed that our beloved proprietor has changed the tag line at the upper left of the page?

    I just noticed it this evening.

  23. I would totally buy an iPocket Watch. I really am that affected.

    And now you mention it, Steve, yes indeed. John is clearly feeling the icy grip of Father Time around his ether-noodles.
