The PP boyz have broadened their horizons beyond debunking "intellectual dishonesty" to pointing out typos. Jeremy Sear's misnaming of Pauline "Henson" is ignored, however.

In tangentially related news, Jeremy has moved his personal blog from Blogger to Wordpress where he now has the much desired ability to ban difficult commenters. Jeremy notes:
The move has been prompted by the woeful state of Blogger’s own commenting facility, combined with the alternatives on which I’d come to rely either dying (Haloscan) or generally being crap (Disqus). And since a blog lives or dies on comments, it’s about time I stopped letting bodgy software kill something I’ve procrastinated worked so hard on.
Hmm, some blogs seem to do just fine without comments. And if comment count is the crucial factor, the PP boyz are going to have to lift their game.

Jeremy also notes that Andrew Bolt is wrong yet again:
...the Cylons are pretend robots, not aliens.
Bolt obviously isn't watching enough TV.

Update: Amazingly, Blair and Bolt commenters are unsympathetic to the plight of Muslim convert Beverly Giesbrecht, who is threatened with execution by the Muslim extremists with whom she sympathises. It's a poetic justice thing.

Update II: As noted in comments, one of the PP boyz has stealthily changed "Henson" to "Hanson". Imagine the PP uproar if Blair or Bolt did that.

I bet Bolt will lose sleep over that one - that error really destroys the credibility of his argument.

Cylons are not robots they are cyborgs.

Actually, the Cylons in the original series were aliens (the Centurions were robots), so yah boo sucks to Jeremy.

Bolt actually is a pretty sloppy blogger who often gets spelling and links wrong... probably a consequence of the large amount of posts that he does every day.
