Is a now defunct blog. But when I stumbled across it, some time ago, I found this post. And given that troll-baiting has been my daily entertainment whilst revising, I thought it seemed like an appropriate time to give it some credit. So, with thanks to the Open Pit Irony Mine and Thus Spake Zuska, the blog whose commenters sparked off the post, I bring you:
