  1. Good freaking gods! Why, I say WHY, are the ASSHATS RUNNING EVERYTHING?!?

  2. … Interesting, dammit. I’ve left a comment there. It’s awaiting moderation — I think it will show up at, from “thnidu” (which is my more usual web tag).

  3. I am flabbergasted that this got written. And appalled. Never buying Helix, that’s for sure.

  4. I love how he attacks her for posting the email rather than try to defend his comments.

  5. Chris @ 4: Well, that’s just logic. The comments were indefensible.

  6. Never mind – thought it was a publishing house rather than a magazine. That makes the filtering much, much easier.


  7. I’ll get the hang of this comments thing sometime. Helix, banned from my house. Sorry for the nonsequitor.
