  1. Hmmmm. Now that’s coffee spurtin funny. Happppppy monnnnday.

  2. Effing awesome, Bugsy. I couldn’t quite figure out the point of all that sooooooo drama, except that it beats doing journalism.

  3. Here’s a question. I’m just putting it out there, Bugs:

    Did Rob make the soooo comment in question?

  4. (I know, crazy of me asking the question rather than just assuming something based on basically nothing.)

  5. Rob gave the thumbs up to this one

  6. I remember when Kerrigan was dating one of his daughters

    That must have driven Rob nuts!

  7. Bill Pierson paid the Anonymous who wrote those comments. Maybe they can try to rescue the Herald from the drain it’s circling when they’re done spreading disinformation here.

  8. When a big hammer doesn’t do the job, use a whiny little bitch instead. Oh Rob Arkley took my lunch money. Whah wah wah.

  9.

    Maybe that will help the obsessives work things out, like those unresolved early childhood issues that continue to make their small lives so sad.

  10. Sooooo funny. Laugh out loud and then some.

  11. Yeah that’s just whack, Wabbit.

    I’ll tell you this. It’s easier to prove a comment was not made by someone than that it was, and of course you can’t really prove a negative. So the answer to the question is not definitive, which probably doesn’t matter because I’m not sure anyone’s all that interested in the truth anyway.

    As most readers know, through WordPress we can see the addresses of everyone who posts a comment on the blog. Seeing addresses is usually not the same as seeing identities. Although sometimes it is, particularly in the case of business and government entities that appear on IP registries.

    Once in a great while, Rob comments on this blog. There have been maybe four comments in three years using two different IP addresses. In each case, he provided a legitimate email address and identified himself as Rob Arkley. In one case, the IP was registered to Security National. Those IPs have never been used anonymously, and the comment Hank got his tiny nut-sack in a twist over did not come from either of those addresses.

    Maybe Hank used clairvoyance to determine the comment was made by Arkley. More likely, he took a shot with an oblique comment that expressed nothing but a steadfast belief in his own cleverness, and in so doing loosed a new meme upon the local blogosphere.

    Regardless, seriously people. Who the fuck cares?

  12. I care.

  13. Wait, this one-line, month-old, offhand remark — you’re losing your shit over that!?!

    Thin gruel!

  14. Er, bad link. Good link.

  15. Who’s Larry Glass?!

  16. Hank, unwad your panties dude.

  17. Dude, I write an eleven-word comment and our hosts here stew on it for a month!

    Who, exactly, is wadded?

  18. The bugs protesteth too much.

  19. I’m not entirely against anonymous comments, or I wasn’t, but increasingly it’s clear that we’d all be better off if people would sign their names and honestly express their opinions and contribute to discussions.

    This is a free country, and you have the right to speak your mind, so why would you hide?

  20. Bugs , was that my remark that Hank was referring to as curious ? Because I can assure him that I am no Rob Arkley . Just a slack jawed local yocal who got that way listening to some liberals take credit for everything good that is Humboldt County . I actually had a lefty tell me that it wasn’t that great up here untill the 80s when he and his budies started “fixin” things ! My jaw dropped and I told him my parents and grandparents thought it was pretty decent place way back when .
    As for myself ,I vote the isuues not the party .
    And yes , keep up the good work !

  21. Ah yes. The great Hank Sims utters but 11 words and all the world is still abuzz! The progs cracked jokes for days, the calendar boy at his former place of employment created a bonus cartoon to commemorate Hank’s error, and now Mr Sims stands back and marvels at his greatness.

    Where I come from we need only two words to describe that: Arrogant fuck. I believe I’ll use the other nine words to order a drink.

  22. Hanky Panky. What’s wadded? Check your shorts unless you don’t wear them (and please don’t share). If you don’t then check your chain that obviously has yanked. I use sooooo all the time and don’t have RA’s outdoor plumbing. Nor do I have to do squat with RA or SN. I just happen to have my own opinion. Hope you are doing well but get over your severance from the NCJ and get an f’ing life aside from the usual prog bull crap.

    Hugs.

  23. Well Anonymous 8:37, It looks to me like the bugs used only five words to get Sims out here with his bad links, idiotic comments and air of mystified brilliance. I believe they should use the other six words to shove up Hank’s ass.

  24. Oh and Plain Jane, and you know what else? You breathe too much.

  25. It’s so powerful, this hold Hank Sims has over all of us, especially now that he works as Pat Cleary’s spokesman.

  26. Hate to fill you in but PJ lusts after me. She keeps sending me emails that she lusts for my “Weinergate” photos. Seems like progs can’t say no to anything ..including photos of their stiffys.

  27. THOSE ELEVEN WORDS CHANGED MY LIFE.

  28. Eleven is my motto. You go German Sherman. Who wants to take me on. Let’s go.

  29. Hank’s been wanked. How much fun is that? German and George, where have you been friends?

  30. RA may have only posted a handful of times, but he has provided plenty of content for this blog, the Peter Douglas photos being the best example.

  31. RobbyA may have only posted a handful of times, but he has provided plenty of content for this blog, the Peter Douglas photos being the best example
