Doh! My mistype. *blush*

The really embarassing thing is that I earlier carefully corrected my misspelling of "Patricia"...

"This plugin was inspired by Patricia Nielsen Hayden."

*guffaw*

I'm sorry, but this was too hilarious...

Couldn't resist writing a quick Movable Type plugin:

Edited to get the darned URL right.

Urban: Because "y" is sometimes a vowel and sometimes isn't, and having to go through his messages and sort out which is which would be more trouble than he's worth.

>I have offered to stop posting for a year if he does return his comments section, which sounds reasonable to me.

Maybe I can get my neighbor to take his fence down if I offer to stop shitting in his yard for a year.

It's not censorship, asshat, it's an attempt to make you understand that you're not wanted. And you don't strike me as the type of person who wins arguments.

HAND.

Well, here's what I posted at another message board on this particular topic:

Just for the record, and I think this is the important part although I found the disemvoweling humorous (although that too is a kind of censorship and not something that people on the winning end of arguments actually do...I never have..)I have offered to stop posting for a year if he does return his comments section, which sounds reasonable to me. You should let your readers know this and you should also read my undisemvoweled responses here:

That's pure genius. It would also be fun to run the troll's posts through babelfish a few times and repost the results. I remember seeing a script that sent phrases through all the languages in babelfish back to English. That would be perfect.
