OMG lol! I think I know who that is……..
Also great work on the story, putting the stupid “controversy” into perspective. You know poeple were outside of our theaters trying to boycott the movie? Well, you have to know where I live I guess, but then again, people here are stupid as hell……..

Glad you liked the story.
Someone clever once said that good horror is just about taking events to their logical conclusion. So, that’s what I did. Heh.
Words are power, my friend, and other powers don’t like them. Religion has never had a liking for the written word. Look at what they thought about the printing press and the Bible translated to English.
The Da Vinci Code is just a work of fiction, nothing more, yet it’s struck a chord in readers, the media and religious circles alike. That’s power.

I found out the spam comments is some sort of program made by some bastards that has infiltrated all blog sites. It is also apparently quite legal.
Also about Edmond Burke, read his part in the book “Man-Made Morals”. Go philosopher’s insight!

Reaper – there’s two kinds of spam comments these days. Scripts that automatically add the comments after finding a certain file on servers that indicated where comments are made, and some of them are added manually. The later are rare these days, but they still happen.
It is because of the scripts that blogger (among others) have word verification. It takes a human being to read and type in those “words”.
And it shouldn’t be legal since it’s a matter of bandwidth theft. At least if you ask me.
