Vantage point

Tuesday, April 25, 2006


We all know what flamebait is. Flamebait can be many things as I have discovered from personal experience - irritating, annoying, infuriating, insulting, and even downright obscene. But once in a while you come across flamebait which is so goddamn boooooring that it seems to be targeted more at insomniacs than anyone else. Flamebait then becomes Phlegm-Bait.

Phlegmbait evokes only one sentiment in addition to mind-numbing ennui - pity. The pity is further compounded when the supposed cloak of anonymity is about as effective as the emperor's new clothes.
