Default A new SWJ Quote of the Day winner!

Here's a great one from Schmedlap over on the SWJ Blog comments.
Nice to see some new visitors to the site. SWJ was getting bland with all of its reasoned discourse. What a lucky break that this thread suddenly attracted some people who could inject profanity, name-calling, finger-pointing, and other nonsense that has been missing from the site for so long.

Another classic by Schmedlap - who has a pretty good blog too BTW.

This is not false modesty, but I thought that I was one-upped by this one...

... though I guess that one couldn't be considered for the prize due to the appearance of a conflict of interest.

I opted to abandon that thread in hopes that they will lose interest and take their nonsense to a more appropriate site. I am guessing that others did the same. It appears to be working.

Let's hope it keeps working and they don't just bring the screaming match to this thread.

I doubt that they will. The loons of the blogsphere seem to have a distinct aversion to message boards. Perhaps it's due to the ease with which they can be beaten down here....
