Time for a New Post – And More Snark

How to Look Like a Commenter Nerd

Yes. It’s me, P-dawg. We’re still keeping an eye on things here. Basically it’s hard to write about stuff, mostly because everyone has been fired from Demand. There’s still some action in the forums, if you care to poke your head over there.
