RicoWavy is Nobody We Know.

The very busy commenter from last night called RicoWavy is logging in from a location where no known troller has come to us before. His comments, especially those on the racism post below, have been excised and we'll keep an eye out for him during the day.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

  1. Thank you, Fab. I just emailed you about this a minute ago, but I should have known you'd have it taken care of.

    Where are you on the Yvonne thing, though; that's really the question of the day. No it's not. I'm bad.

  2. ...And once yet again I miss the flava and the drama and the act of absolution except in its reporting phase. Given that there are only four of us, how does this so consistently happen??! Oh well.

    1. Because it's all made up. Even you. Even me.

      The ads, though. They're real.

  3. By the way, sort of off topic. Aren't my fellow Ohioans glad that regular commercials now fill the TV?

    1. I'm not in OH (well, at least my persona doesn't have OH residence in its bio), and don't own a TV, but I spent about 4 days in a TV-equipped hotel room in a swing state while attending a conference last month. That was more than enough. I understand your pain; you have my heartiest congratulations on the return to the air of salespeople hawking used cars, knives, nose-hair trimmers and the like. Anything would be an improvement.

  4. And thanks for policing whatever nastiness I missed, Fab. Sounds like either someone we know is on vacation/at a conference, or the election sent someone off the edge (not the fiscal cliff, which is yet to come). I probably shouldn't be, but I'm astounded by some of the nasty stuff that creeped out of its hiding places and rioted in the streets (sometimes literally) and on the interwebz Tues. night/Weds. morning. As plenty of commentators have pointed out, it's probably an extinction burst by a demographic group that realizes it's never going to be on top again (well, at least not unless it's willing to make common cause on the basis of something other than skin color/ethnicity -- e.g. the various % divisions), but it's still disgusting and disturbing. Yuck.

  5. I missed this, so thank you for not exposing us further to whatever hate speech was deleted.

    I feel especially solid for one who does not exist. :o)
