Unfortunately, I have been forced to make commenting privileges limited to registered Blogger users. Hopefully this will be temporary. Comment moderation didn't work and I don't want to eliminate comments altogether. This will have to do for the time being.
The reason for this is some anonymous asshat decided to write the word "Redskins" over, literally, 20,000 times in my comments. It slowed my entire computer down and it prevented me from navigating my own blog in an efficient manner. Whoever did that is a fucking idiot and I hope he/she gets the clap. Does anyone know where I can send complaints if someone anonymously leaves 20,000+ racial epithets in a single comment. Maybe Blogger can pull up his IP address and ban him/her from these sites. That would be awesome.
A lot of my commenters are not Blogspot users. I urge you all to get accounts so we can keep up the fun. I don't know what I'd do without people telling me what a typical New England liberal I was.
To soothe the pain of this change, I'd like to feature a special reader submitted edition of INS1PID. It comes from Ellen in Ashburn, VA and is very slightly edited for grammatical purposes:
..."It sucks out here. Anyway, I happened to be stuck behind a gargantuan Chevy truck monstrosity with all the requisite American flag stickers and support our troops, blah blah blah and sporting yet another lame motherfucking personalized license plate the Old Dominion is so famous for. What was the little bit of wittiness on this plate? Why it was no less than "11 MPG." Yes that's right, addicted to guzzling foreign oil and proud of it. Like anyone in this overgrown subdivision needs a truck to go one of the ten grocery stores in a 1 mile radius. Fucking Virginia."
Hurray for Virginia! Supporting our troops by gloating how inefficient your car is! Has anyone ever asked to get their truck keyed more than this dude?
