I have no problem with a knucklehead who chooses to be a knucklehead despite the fact that they have been informed they are being a knucklehead. Acting under the influence of deception is one thing, acting after having been informed is another. Wear what you like as long as you know what it is , yet, somehow, someway, far beyond my considerable capacity for comprehension, like it anyhow. Once I've enlightened someone, I've done all I can do. I've done my job. I've given it everything I've got. I've taken my best shot and so on. The rest is up to their own natures, to buy or not to buy, it's solely up to them, they gotta put their grown-up person undergarments on, they're on their own and so forth. And that's ok with me. It has to be, otherwise the top of my head would blow off.

This is the hard part.
First of all, I'd like to quote the guy who said: "Comedy is not pretty," however, I don't remember who said it and I aint with the google tonight, I'm in a hurry, so I gotta keep this short. So, this is the hard part, as comedy indeed is oft-times not pretty, but, is
always funny, to someone, (I had a stand-up comic room-mate in college who never bombed, he just had the wrong audience) and I have to admit, I do get an occasional kick out of the fringe.
I'll enjoy my guilty little corner of comedic darkness with you guys out on my balcony, however, I have no desire to parachute in and stick it up their butts in the middle of their own deal, especially since they are not affiliated with a sponsor, although I've read Wing is sniffing around. Mongo is probably feeding him the same line of bullshit that he fed Laylow, laying out how he's going to make Android the next Invicta, while planning a takeover, and whatnot. Mongo is
good at getting his foot in the door, I hope the Android bit is just an ugly rumor.
The above said,
I think that much of the battering of geeks has been largely related to their rabid support for a company we find to be Public Enemy Number One to this thing of ours, more so than anything personal. IWG, the primary object of our campaign, is kept at the forefront of the search engines, largely facilitated by our eye on the industry and continual posts about those crooks. There is another thread about this somewhere, so I won't dwell on it, however, I think it's important to keep the truth out there, as more and more consumers are doing research on the web before making purchases.
I have no problem with, as someone, I think HF said, not clubbing baby seals, at least not on their home ice, while continuing to keep the IWG, et.al. on the burner and poking a little fun over here at our clubhouse.
