Not that anyone is probably interested in my personal life, but the other day I set myself on a journey. I was mildly bored and informed a number of other bloggers about this boredom. I decided, because I am utterly puerile and childish, to wind up a certain other blogger who likes to get himself all fired up and write lengthy posts.
Now don't get me wrong, there are some bloggers out there who can achieve the "long post" post with amazing mastery. For example, Paint over that Crossed Pond is probably the master of holding a reader's attention even when he's talking about something boring. Then there are those who don't. They usually fail simply because they right in sporadic disjointed sentences which make the reader want to scroll, or even worse, close the window.
Anyway, I digress, I got bored and decided it was time to poke the hornets nest and see how far I could get the hornets to go whilst getting away without a single sting, and yesterday I achieved just that. In less than a few hundred words I provoked the tirade, the ultimate culmination of a good bait, the essay post.
If people must read it then they will need to either figure out who the said blogger is, or go to Iain Dale's and look for the spam linking in the comments. What did this essay post say? Well, it basically highlighted all the inconsistencies I never said I didn't have and presented them as evidence of my part in the great blogging conspiracy. It also exposed me, a card carrying member of the Tory Party, as partisan. I know that might come as a shock to you, I had to double-check myself.
I can't deny that I'm proud of myself for this childish game, because, quite frankly I am. What makes it all the more amusing is that the blogger in question actually thinks that I care. Yes, honestly. He think that me, a nobody really, actually gives a toss about what he says about me and the perceived injustices that he's crafted in his head.
See what you have to remember is that this guy's like Al Gore. Where Gore invented teh Interweb (All Praise the Gore!), he invented the blogosphere. And anyone who pollutes it with the wrong opinions is well, just wrong. Of course, he himself pollutes the search engines through the use of crosspost linking, link spamming and backtrack, so that when you search for something you get tonnes of irrelevant results. Truth be known though, I only said that to wind the spammer up a little more. At the end of the day though, a scumbag should be called a scumbag.
Anyways, that the breaking news, a Tory (see it says it over there on the Right) is partisan. He's also a bit of piss-taker in his spare time and just fancied playing with a wooden spoon. He promises to write something about politics, or maybe the new 8-way cores that Apple are about to promote later on.
