Ode to "anonymous"...


"Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous."

I found this here http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/2012/07/som-sabadell-orchestral-flashmob/ not that I have had any anonymous comments but I know some out there have. Made me laugh. Oh the video on there is worth the 5 minutes too...  tell me what you think ... even if you want to be anonymous!


Edit: I don't know why this has highlighted the above text... any ideas?? It looks like I'm making a real point and I'm not. I just thought it was funny.

  1. I post anonymous just because I don't want to sign up for the various organizations. Your post was funny but, in some cases, true.

    1. I'm not really bothered if people post anonymously either - I hate signing up to organisations too. It's annoying - like 30 cards in your wallet for coffee shops, book shops etc! I still don't know how that highlighting got there nor have I been able to remove it to replicate it again!

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing what you think.
