Tweet of the Day, On The Internet, EVERYBODY Knows You’re A Dog edition.

There is no such thing as ‘anonymous on the Internet.’ There is only ‘hasn’t pissed off the right person yet.’

A public service announcement for lawyers.

If your client has been arrested for hitting a woman, and she sends your client this text message

Please let me know you’re okay when you get this. They assured me that you won’t be charged. They said they had to arrest you as protocol when they saw the injuries on me and they knew we had a fight. I’m so angry that they did. And I’m sorry you’re in this position. Will make sure nothing happens about this. I told them it was my fault for trying to grab your phone. I only just got out of hospital. Just call me when you’re out. I love you.

…do not release it to the media. It is not the exculpatory message that you think it is. It is a message that will tell the future jury, He sent me to the hospital over nothing and now I’m all turned around and blaming myself for getting hit. Which will suit the prosecution right down to the ground, but: what’s the victory condition, here? How does this make things better for the client?

PS: I wonder if they scheduled any quick rewrites/reshoots for the second season of LOKI. If so, I also wonder if they got them done before the strike started.

A PSA on broken links.

If they are more than a year old, I probably don’t care. If they are more than six years old, I really don’t care. I’m certainly not going to respond to your thinly-disguised attempts to replace said links with ones leading to spam, phishing, and/or credit card fraud.

So cut it out.

PS: This is not directed at anyone who actually reads this site. I’m just getting my slight exasperation on the record.

A Public Service Announcement for public officials saying stupid things on Twitter.

  1. Don’t.
  2. If you do, don’t delete the Tweet once it blows up in your face.
  3. If you do, don’t then claim that you were hacked once your deletion of the Tweet that blew up in your face blows up in your face.
  4. If you do, don’t then delete the claim when it blows up in your face.
  5. …Look, just get off of Twitter, OK? Bad Idea. Bad idea.

PS: I’m being merciful by not mentioning the person’s name, yes.  I have these urges towards kindness, from time to time. Or maybe I’m just finicky that way.

#rsrh A PSA for Republican operatives.

You want to tell me how great your candidate for RNC chair is?  Excellent!  Make your pitch.

You want to tell me how awful somebody else’s candidate for RNC chair is?  …well, there are a lot of people out there who I am sure will be happy to take that call.  I ain’t one of them.

Moe Lane

PS: This rule will also be in effect for the 2012 primary season.

PPS: No, I’m not going to name names.

PPPS: I am, of course, happy to see any evidence that a Democrat is involved in skulduggery.
