If you think this is how you should use Twitter, you're a dick.

    Perhaps a section 16 in the contract that is a copy of section 15 but mentions an abuse of twitter and either a fine or you get to punch them in the face, twice.

  3. Given: a communication channel, however limited.

    Theory: spam, spam, spam spam spam

    Additional research needed: Are spammers dicks by nature, or can the theraputic application of hammers provide the reintegration to society they so obviously need?

      I'm waiting for one of them to show up here and demonstrate that, yes, they are indeed natural dicks. Seem to remember we've had domain campers trying to straight-faced argue that they "add value" on these comments before.

  4. James says:

    At least it's the users being the dicks, not the company.

    Almost looks like Perl code.

      Worse - it's Forth.

      The words starting with # are probably formatting words, and the ones with @ are memory access. Ones ending in commas are compiler words, and ending in ! makes it a memory store. These are all just stylistic conventions (the definition of an identifier in Forth is "a sequence of one or more non-space characters delimited by spaces") but they're pretty strong conventions nevertheless. It appears, on the face of it, to be reading an internal table of variables and formatting them, then compiling the result into memory somewhere and storing some kind of status in a global variable -- for example, a count of lines generated. It could easily be code in a Forth-based PDF report generator, say. Not at all surprising.

    Not to be used with #botfucking

  7. because twitter has previously been a source of tremendous depth?

    Behold the replies.

  9. I'm sorry, who are they promoting again? I didn't quite catch it.

    • jwz says:

      They seem to be trying to promote an event at my club where they are one of the many performers.

      With friends like these who needs enemas, or however that goes.
