Patterico's Pontifications


How Come *You* Guys Aren’t This Nice?

Filed under: Humor — Patterico @ 7:00 am

I have received a surprising number of compliments on the site lately, from people who just happened to be searching for information on various commercial products and services, such as office supplies and voip Internet telephone service. The feedback I have received from these commenters has been uniformly positive. Typical of these plaudits is a comment I received today from someone who calls himself “cheap cellular camera phones”:

I can’t believe how nice this site is. I can’t believe how much information is here. Keep the content flowing.I will be back soon.

Why, thank you! My face is red!

This flood of adulation has been so downright embarrassing that I have been forced to delete all such comments. I don’t want it to go to my head.

But I just wanted to say a hearty “Thank you!” to these commenters. Just because I deleted your comments doesn’t mean I didn’t appreciate them! If only the regular commenters were so unguardedly effusive in their acclaim, I’d be a happy blogger, every day.

  1. Ooo! Ooo! Can I be the first to leave a snarky response?

    Because Bush lied!

    (Oh, come on, you knew somebody was going to turn the thread to that eventually. We might as well get it out of the way.)

  2. You mean my prefacing my comments to your writings as, “Our esteemed host wrote,” didn’t meet the happiness criterion?

    We are all certainly assured that you would never submit to appeasment Patterico. To compromise the integrity of this site would be unforgivable.

  8. You do do a great job Patterico, and your site is always fun to read. Sorry it doesn’t get said more often, but hey, at least I read you.

  9. Great blog, Patterico!
    Now will you bid on the cellular GPS camera I have up at eBay?
    And BTW, great posts!

    Somewhat OT, a commenter at Winds of Change related that he couldn’t write in to a blog with his thoughts on socialism. Politically incorrect? Naw, an antispam filter picking up socialism.

  10. dont break you arm patting (or should i say patterico’ing) yourself on the back, Patrick.

    you are a known hegemon. and we all know what THAT means in certain, shall we say “Lunar” orbits inhabited by nocturnal winged rodents

  11. Wow! I love your site! I agree with what you said, and I actually wrote about the same thing on my blog not too long ago. . .

  12. So as an ADA you do not suspect even a little bit of comment spam? (I know you do and I suspect Xrlq does too so I am just being a killjoy, I guess). By the way, this is onehelluva good blog — from your posts to your commenters.

  13. Let it go to your head all you want, just don’t let it get to your pocketbook.

  14. As they Vikings say . . .

  16. Patterico, i’m not being nice to you right now because my weblog is down due to technical difficulties. I’ll start being nice again when I can flog my weblog. :)

  17. WordPress does have a function which will allow you to block incloming comments from particular IP addresses.

    Dana (9f37aa)

  18. Dana – that’s less useful than you might think for spammers, who often use proxies with throwaway IP addresses.

  19. In the spirit of the “Love is all ya need” 60’s, I’m sending you a daisy-chain necklace Patterico.

  20. I thought you were being serious for a second. Is it just me, or does spam come in waves?

  21. Will, I managed to get two of them on the same thread, but it was a thread which had died a month earlier.

    Of course, reader sample disaster recovery plan was even nicer than reader buy cheap cellular phones; he said I was one of his top ten blogs now. :)
