lol your comment

Sometimes people randomly leave comments on old posts, where the original comments threads have disappeared since we replaced Haloscan with Disqus. Mostly, I don't notice them, but occasionally I happen to spot them in the "Recent Comments" widget in the sidebar.

Earlier today, someone left the following comment on the "Imperfection" post:

hey your gay!!


Naturally, this is to be incorporated into the Shakes Lexicon, effective immediately.
