Some of you may know the name Shamus Young from his (now completed) DM of the Rings webcomic.

When I discovered DMotR I started reading his blog and still check it regularly.  Today he had an interesting post about Yahoo! Answers.  There was a travesty of the internet that happened over at Yahoo! Answers and Shamus talks about it a little bit.  I suggest you read his post and enjoy it as much as I did.

But if you don’t want to I’ll share the story of what inspired his post.  (Don’t bother reading past here if you go read Shamus’ post.  He puts it together better than I will. wink)

Apparently there was a question posted over at Yahoo! Answers a while ago that asked the following (appearing exactly like this):

HOW IS BABBY FORMEd?
HOW GIRL GET PRAGNENT

As you would probably expect, there were several answers that were very straightforward with lots of (the correct) information.  Informative links were also provided.  These were apparently modded down as not being helpful.  The following response was raised to being the most helpful answer (again appearing exactly like this):

They need to do way instain mother> who kill thier babbys. becuse these babby cant frigth back? it was on the news this mroing a mother in ar who had kill her three kids. they are taking the three babby back to new york too lady to rest my pary are with the father who lost his children ; i am truley sorry for your lots

The best part of this is the Flash animation that came about because of it.  You can view it here

Of course, the fact that Shamus links to IWC in his post doesn’t do any harm, either…eh? wink

We can only hope the original poster doesn’t figure it out.. we don’t need that kind of intelligence spreading.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

Didn’t realize the flash animation was looped. Mistakenly let it play repeatedly on my headphones while writing email.

Now I can’t get the voices out of my head….


...Babby…

And of course, with the birth of the artist came the inevitable afterbirth—the critic.
