Hold onto your hats folks, PP boy Scott Bridges has the dirt on new blog The Punch: it's a commercial site. Even worse, The Punch's mission statement is less than transparent:
No mention there of shameless plugs for new books by their authors, complete with Buy Now! links at the end.
Funny, no mention in the Pure Poison mission statement of the Crikey subscription plug and multiple ads cluttering up every page.

If anything, Bridges envies The Punch's authors, who stand to make some real money. Maybe Bridges should write a book and plug it on Pure Poison; surely he's an authority on something people want to know more about.

The difference is that Bridges often writes about things other than lesbians, fleshlights and penises. The same can't be said about you and your fetish with Bridges, Sear and Lowenstein.

Although I did enjoy your piece about the condiment dispenser - it was high-calibre blogging.

A quick count -- it could be wrong so you had better check it -- shows 39 posts on my main page, with seven direct references to Bridges, Sear and Loewenstein. What was your point again?

You know what they say about books and front covers, Beck. The only reason those three aren't writ large across your main page at the moment is because you and Surname (who is affiliated with Grods and thus with Bridges) are shooting spitballs at each other and you've got a bee up your skirt over him.

But even so, how many penis/Fleshlight/lesbian references can you find on the front page of Grods at the moment? Count 'em and get back to me.

The Grods archive contains 12 posts tagged "fleshlight". Seven of the 12 are by Bridges. Please continue.

Beck, why don't you come clean about your obsession? It'd be the best thing for all involved. You know what they say, 'admitting you've got a problem is the first step on the road to recovery'.

Repeat after me: "My name's JF and I'm a blogaholic. It's been 14 hours since I last blogged about Antony Loewenstein."

Yes, some posts will appear multiple times due to archiving, comments, etc. Which explains Grods' 1,380 hits for "fleshlight".

Why read what's bad? Probably for the same reason people slow down to gawk at car wrecks? You know you shouldn't but...

I like reading this blog, in part because I can get the lowdown on the latest stupid PP stunts without having to visit the boyz' blogs.

I rea Beck so I don't have to read The PPBoyz or Pimples.

Seems to me Surname has a problem with Beck rather than the othey way round.

You know you've hit a soft spot when a hastily-drafted plan is executed at PP/grods and your comments section is beset by a throng of rent-a-crowd wankers using google search results as their weapon of choice.

"Pogfuck", you're letting the team down; please try harder. There's no "plan" and indeed no "crowd", just me pointing out the hypocrisy of Beck's position. Seriously, are conspiracy theories the best your pea-brain can muster in relation to this matter?

Mehaul, this blog is full of anonymous commenters who routinely slag off the three or four other blogs. Each of these anonymous commenters should follow your advice. For that matter, so should you.

Which gutless anonymous are you? Sounds like you're tied into the same little circle of repetition that you're criticising. Your logic falls away though. I'll title you the sad, lonely, anonymous. Sounds like you need to get out child. Smell the roses et al.

Cool, a university-educated punctuation pedant; no blog is complete without one.

How do you figure that I am "university-educated"? Perhaps I just read a lot. As in real books, not half-baked blogs.

Gee, Anonymoss, that's so damn witty - not. The networks should give you your own TV show, call it As Funny as Cholera or perhaps Watch Me Embarass Myself.
