Joyce was a prophet

Going through the blogosphere, I am amazed by the amount of crap that's around, and even though I'd love to patronisingly dismiss most of it as being part of the necessary fabric of 'democracy', I sometimes feel like smacking some people, especially idiot commenters on my posts who do not even get the drift of what I'm talking about, yet care to abuse me and my writing.

James Joyce in the Dubliners story, A Painful Case

She asked him why did he not write out his thoughts. For what, he asked her, with careful scorn. To compete with phrasemongers, incapable of thinking concecutively for sixty seconds? To submit himself to the criticisms of an obtuse middle class which entrusted its morality to policemen and its fine arts to impresarios?

Suitably enough,

Comments to Joyce was a prophet

If you post and somebody pukes on it by their puke "post" and in turn you "puked posted" on their puke post and they in turn puked posted on your puke post of their puke post, is it recursive or is it cyclic?
