Small random thoughts

* Should we treat stupidity like spam? I quite like the idea, especially as some people are working on [“a stupidfilter”:] based on spam-fighting principles. With this in place, most comments on newspaper sites would just vanish. Also, if you poke around their site, you will discover the “More” button is spelled “moar”, which is a nice touch.
* “Fantastic obituary”: in the _Independent_ that starts: %(sane)Sammy Duddy was a colourful Belfast character who combined membership of one of the city’s most lethal paramilitary groups with a career as “Samantha”, a highly suggestive drag act.%
* I know I worry too much, but the more I read about the Storm worm, the more I think I should own shares in Apple. Not that a mac will protect you from whatever it is the botnet is going to do, but a lot of people will be buying them after it is over.
* A drunken elk has been reported to the police near Borgholm, on the island of Öland.

    oh, look, i’m playing helmintholog catch up. a while ago we were trying to devise a crazy filter. two many exclamation points was definitely bad!!!! also, those PEOPLE and sudden capitalize words at RANDOM were going to get points for mental illness. there were more- i forget them at the moment. it would be nice if, identifying repeat offenders by ip, one could suggest appropriate medical help.
