Has been a while since I spew my few poisoned bytes on the matter, not
without regret as in some romantic past I did enjoy the caustic mood
Morlock shared; and a certain taste for humor-noir (Andre' Breton

However, times have changed and the same cynical rethoric about iphone
and martini people has moved on different shores and topics, where the
blame is for supposed "SJWs" and the very term of social justice is
derided. I am afraid there will be more similar mutations and more
occasions for us to be disgusted.

However, there is no more mystery around who Morlock is. Not that it
would really make interesting news, nor anyone would jump on the
chair, however sooner or later someone will out him.

Not me. But I second Brian of course, Morlock's stuff rots the list.
The dark /dev/null corner in my procmail recipe is ready, but I don't
dare to put him there just yet, hoping one day the bar rises again.
