So now you're hungover, and just as nasty as last night.

Googlefight is just another way for geeks like you to waste your time. That was my whole point.

Judging by everything I have seen you write in here, I'm sure I would find you extremely offensive in person. We should try to avoid that.

No pain here, Matty. We have already dismissed GF as irrelevant. You people need to get over yourselves...

And you need to get back to your important, and I'm certain, lucrative journalistic and technical writing career.

I other words, please go away. You supposedly don't care about us & what we think, why have come back repeatedly? Don't answer that, it was rhetorical.

Man, guys, it's Easter. Let's all cook up some rabbit, drink some beers, ride some scooters, and enjoy the egg hunts. As for Google Fight, yeah it's some funny stuff.

Seriously.

Actually, Gary, that Googlefight was people searching for "Gary" or "Charpentier". If you search for your full name, you don't get as many.

I'll save you the click, it's 248,000 to 437. You sure are Mr. Popular!

I only have 199, but I'm quite a bit younger than you and not a "journalist".

433, do we really want to get into name calling? I won't stoop to your level.
But speaking of names, why don't you use yours? What are you ashamed of?


Um, nothing. I have a nickname on BBSes, I've had the same one since about 1989. Besides, it's not too difficult to figure out my name based on posts here or elsewhere online -- any idiot can do it.

I'm even willing to forgive Jeremy Stomberg for the "douchebag" comment.


See?

433 @ 1002?


1002? Oh, I see, you googled me and found my old address. Congratulations, you did something my seven-year-old nephew can do.

Happy Easter, hope nobody sticks an egg in your exhaust.


Hey Jeremy,

I searched my name and came up with 776 hits. I'm 42 and I'm not a journalist. In fact, I work for the government and have "Top Secret" clearance. How is it possible for someone who doesn't want to be known more well known than someone who does?

Hey Gary, I think you need to work harder. You could also work smarter but we have reason to think that that's not going to happen.

Dude, you're like a battered woman. Why do you keep coming back for more? You know we're lying to you when we tell you that you're the best we ever had. We're using you and then slapping you down.

"I'm sorry, baby. I didn't mean to hit you. I love you. I really do."

SLAP!

Go get help for yourself. Is there a shelter for battered journalists?

Buh bye.

Tom's right, of course.

But I have one question: Why do you feel it's OK to malign me here, when you wouldn't dare say the same thing to my face?

It's the same thing you encounter in traffic, when some asshole flips you off as they pull out in front of you. They feel safe and anonymous inside their armored cage, so they can express their true feelings without fear of retribution?

Our technology has enabled people to become crass and ignorant, without any accountability for their actions. Is that a good thing? We who ride scooters and motorcycles should know better than that.

But you guys, sitting behind your keyboards and little glass monitors, think it's perfectly fine to talk shit that you wouldn't dare say to my face. Why is that? Isn't that the very definition of chickenshit?


Yes, I understand that you love all-metal, traditional scooters and detest the plastic Asian invaders. Fine. I actually sympathize with you there. Blame capitalism for the fact that not everyone can afford to buy top-quality machinery. But don't blame me for doing what I have to do in order to ride to work.

That's all I have to say, for now. But I do find you folks fascinating, and I can't guarantee that I won't come back from time to time. You're still much more interesting than the car guys.

Ride well,

You should show up at a scheduled ride some time. You'll likely learn in a heartbeat that several of us are perfectly happy to say the same thing to your face.

(weather permitting, of course) ...Huh. Well, it looks like I missed today. But then again, so did you. A little rain spoiled your parade, huh?

Sure, I'll see you on the seventh, if I don't have anything better to do.

Ride well,

You are a real piece of work, sweety.

You gave us a long lecture on hiding behind the electonic veil, safe and sound and then you show your real colors by emailing this garbage:

To:

How fucking ignorant are you?

This is really a small community. Eventually, we will meet somewhere,
and do you think I will just forget what you said?

Punk."

What exactly are you thinking? Dude, if you were a dog, we'd have taken your mangy, flea-bitten, mongrel ass out behind the shed for an appropriate tune-up. Jeez, you are a trip.

Have a lovely day.

"Sweety" huh?

That's perfectly consistent with my mental picture of you.

You go ahead and treat me like a dog. See what it gets you.

I'm comin', peach. See you on the seventh.
