Steve Yegge explains Reddit

Normally, I try to write original content here. But this is so funny that I’ve got to share it. Steve Yegge explains the comments on Reddit.
Not to mention the comments, which can individually sometimes be quite cool, but in aggregate only make sense when you read them aloud with the voice of the Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons: “I upvoted you for the appropriate uses of ‘its’ and ‘their’ in the link title, but downvoted you because your link actually appeared on a little-known German social networking site several hours ago. I feel it is important that you understand that this is not a zero-vote of abstention, but rather a single upvote and a single downvote cancelling one another out.” If you read the comments with CBG’s voice, a lot of them make a whole lot more sense.
