I tried and tried, but I just couldn't resist linking to this parody:
"Confirming their intent to battle Google's new Blogger service, MT then announced on its TypePad site that the it would be rendering all of its users' posts in image format- meaning that any blog hosted by the TypePad service would be immune to Google's awesome searching reach, because the blog entries would actually be images, rather than text ... Taking the incredible step to block your users' access to and from Google, the de-facto clearinghouse and meetinghouse of the Web, is a bold and almost paranoid move for MovableType to make in a war that hasn't even begun (neither the new Google-powered Blogger, nor MT's new TypePad sevice, have yet to launch). It's as if MT has forgotten how precarious their strong hold is over such a fickle group of fans."
For reference, the author was referring to this dollarshort.org post, which, I assume could have only benefitted from a "THIS IS A JOKE" disclaimer.
The confusion over my feeble attempts at humor has spurred us to create the <$MTJoke$> tag, which from this moment on, is a required Movable Type tag to be used when indicating sarcasm, gentle ribbing, playful jests and half-truths.
THIS IS A JOKE!
I guess my 26 paragraph screed on Google's gourmet chef wouldn't go over well either.
