FIRST DOG: I’m fully aware that there is a machine doing the moderating work. It is unfortunate you think me so rude as to be insulting a person. So many years of being such an enormous fan of yours. So little consideration of the intelligent human being I am.
Now that you mention the subject of manners: What is it about me that bugs you? Not once have you ever said anything nice to me. Merely an explosion if I state something you don’t agree with.
Finally, why would you imagine that someone who has been subscribing to Crikey for five years could NOT be aware that the initial moderator is a machine?
