AsPostedontheNYTimes Some dude who appears to be crazy is cataloging all the comments he makes on blogs.


So I guess I should keep my mouth shut about my personal comment archive relating to I may "appear to be crazy."

(actually, I once did this on a board where I would post long form comments, because the database was always purged 3-4 months prior to the current month. Stuff would get lost. Stuff I'd typed for an hour. I figure I might want to go back and look some day. Turns out I rarely look, and spend most of my day reading all these other blogs.)

I don't think archiving your comments is necessarily crazy (I sorta do it on the homepage of this site). The craziness has more to do with the weirdness of the comments themselves -- the quantity, the quality, and the locale.

That guy is crazy... of the batshit variety. There are pages and pages of his comments! I swear, if he gets a book deal...

If it's not MARK KLEIN, M.D., I'm not interested.

Has he figured out yet that the comments themselves have permalinks? On the pages I looked at, he hadn't.

Someone (me, I guess) should tell him.
