Is anyone here familiar with the book House of Leaves, the debut novel by the American author Mark Z. Danielewski? No? Really? It was a best-seller and everything! Hmmph. So I guess any jokes I make about Metafilter's latest spammer Navidson being named after The Navidson Record would be wasted on you, huh? Fine. Let's just look at Navidson's four throwaway comments, then. The first one is a funny one... but more on that after these 'messages.'
"Nowadays you can even make your own cloud and use it as advertising."
(from the Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd FPP)
"Amazing! Much more awesome than SmrtrChild. Real awesomeness though? Is when you get two robots to chat with each other."
(from the DR. SBAITSO WAS MY ONLY FRIEND. FPP)
"Found the full bot-to-bot chat. Sort of beautiful."
(also from the DR. SBAITSO WAS MY ONLY FRIEND. FPP)
"Thanks to anti-gay marriage actions like this, discrimination is still alive and well."
(from the Bible gets sued FPP)
Remember how I said that the first comment was funny? You'll notice that all of Navidson's comments had a hyperlink, except the first. That's because I removed it. Why? Because the link in his very first comment was a link to his crappy website! The same website he would later spam Metafilter with in a terrible FPP! Isn't that hilarious? No? Really?
Figures. I shouldn't have expected any less from a bunch of people who never read House of Leaves. Frankly I'm glad that cortex banned this guy. Without Navidson we never would have had this conversation, I'd never have known you were all a bunch of humourless philistines, and everything would have been a lot better right now!
Get bent, Navidson!
