It’s been a while since we here in this wretched hive of scum and villainy have discussed the form of “aggressive moderation” being practiced by our friends at AnnArbor.com. As I’m sympathetic to their situation, and want for them to be successful, I try not to be unnecessarily critical of the choices they make. But, on occasion, though, they do something so silly, that I can’t help but comment. And, today is one of those days… The following screen shot comes from a thread on their site today about Asian carp.
I’m not sure how using ALL CAPS violates their Comment Moderation Guidelines, but maybe there’s something offensive about capital letters that I’m not aware of.
So, be careful… Exclamation marks may be next.
Speaking of Asian carp, I find it interesting that, of the now twenty-some articles I’ve read on the subject, I haven’t come across a single mention of how the giant fish taste. I mean, I want them out of the Great Lakes – don’t get me wrong – but, at least if they tasted good, there would be something of an upside to having these giant, 75-pound missiles shooting out of Lake Michigan and killing boaters.
