As if e-mail and MySpace weren't bad enough, now glurge is popping up in comments pages on DeviantArt. This is a short-but-saccharine one, complete with emotional blackmail and bad ASCII art.

I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

Why do these things associate having lots of friends with being a good friend? Logically, if I only have 1 friend, I have more time to devote to that friend and am probably a closer confidant, right? So, wouldn't that mean that I'm a great friend, just not very popular?

I kind of like the ASCII art... I'm a bit of a sucker for ASCII.

Oh, glurgey chain letters have been going around DA since the dawn of time. Luckily I've never gotten any, but I know quite a few people who've complained many times about getting stuff like that from people they don't even know. Fortunately they give you the option to hide comments you don't like now...

Shouldn't it follow that the more people you send this to, the worse a friend to those people you are?

At least it's not the one with 12 freakin pictures you have to scroll an hour to get through. Blah.

The art makes me think of a kid who posted a two word post on a usenet group I used to visit, complete with a 3 page in dejanews ASCII picture of a naked woman.
