Celebrating Astroturfers and Sockpuppets Day!

Has anyone seen either of these characters today??

There have been one or two suspicious characters popping up in the wake of one or two controversial topics …

OK, well, flag them for moderator attention with an explanation if you have evidence of sockpuppets or astroturfers.

I do I do! Loved it since the day it was born.

But the reference has thrown me. There’s a ravine between me getting what’s going on, and what’s going on!

I’m tempted to think I’m being made fun of. I am, however, into my 16th hour of spreadsheet jockeying today, so might be weirding out.

I’m not sensitive about that kind of thing though!

Besson says he’s doing another SF film in the same vein. I am excited.


Pop on over to the latest Snowden thread…

A fine piece of trolling if ever I saw one.


Thanks for dropping that here. I missed that one.
