Whoever's responsible, cut it out. You make us look bad.

Great. Not only do I have to put up with easily-Blacklistable spam suggesting that I need Cialis, Viagra, or more games of Texas Hold Em. (On the grounds, I guess, that after a four-hour erection nothing's better than a few quick hands of poker.) Now some idiot has decided to use comment-spam for Googlebombing, and it looks like this jackass is a conservative.

Oh joy.

On one of my older entries, I find this message left in the comments:

I just can't shut my pie hole.

--Whiny Communist Bitch

The spammer set the signature to link to Associate Professor Elizabeth Lane Lawley's "Mamamusings" site. The idea being that if one were to search Google for the term "whiny communist bitch," she'd pop up first. As of yet, it's not working, but give it a few days.

Whoever's doing this: I don't care what you think about Ms. Lawley, her politics, or her personality. I haven't read her site and have no clue what her opinions are. But what you're doing is wrong, annoying, and pathetic. It's not big, it's not clever, and its not going to endear you to anyone. Go crawl back into your hate-filled hole before you encourage other idiots to follow your example.

As a result of your tomfoolery I've just had to spend fifteen minutes I don't have to erase your bile and yet remove Ms. Lawley from my blacklist. Worse yet, the fact that you're calling her a communist implies you're probably a conservative, which means you're blackening the reputation of the rest of us. May the bugs of a thousand implementations of Outlook infest your file structure and may you spend the rest of your nights sharing a bed in a youth hostel with an unshowered Michael Moore. That's not quite a good enough curse, but frankly words fail me.
