This simply isn't true. You can tell the different between Shakespearean repartee and 1920s era slang, or the prim diction of the victorian 1800s.

And nothing of any generation sounds like a couple of CB aficionados chatting to each other in their highly-encrypted Masonic code. Hammer down, good buddy!

You can also tell the *difference* between those who suffer from dyslexic typing, and those who do not. It really diminishes the impact of anything I have to say about grammar, unfortunately.

When you embed comics that include alt-text, I think it would be cool if you could also embed the alt-text. At this point, I can't look at an XKCD without hovering my cursor over it and waiting for a bonus prize.

Why would anyone believe anything you write, after reading all about you and your group of Journolist writers and your attempts at collusion.

So true elby.

How will the rest of JournoList know what opinions to have now that Ezra has disbanded it?! I guess they'll have to come to his blog to find out that today's secret message is this very XKCD.
