Infomaniac Declared “Silly”



Our Brits! Brits! Brits! post continues to attract anonymous commenters.

But rather than continue on with the “Brits” debate, let’s skip ahead to see what Anonymous (a woman this time) has to say about Infomaniac in general …


A nice blog, but sometimes a bit too silly in places.


We here at Infomaniac are at a loss to determine which parts of Infomaniac are “too silly”.

Opinions, anyone?

  1. Wow, I am very very sorry I missed your Brits post and discussion, especially as I am still smarting from the flames I ignited back when on my own blog (remember that?)...

    Possibly the commenter is a plastic-clog-wearer (I will not mention the brand name for fear of inciting a riot) and took umbrage with your sartorial hard line.

  2. Silly? Well, of course it is... and we wouldn't have it any other way, now would we?

    But it's silly in a sexy, smutty kinda way. :-)

  3. Actually, MJ, I think you should be more disturbed by the "nice" part...

    Hi Miss P!

  4. I love that "nice blog" and "sometimes a bit silly in places" is right above the title - and, of course photo, for - "Geezer Smut"

    Seems that the equilibrium HAS been reset.

  9. It's the commentators that make your blog silly, the actual content is serious and scientific.

  10. Sorry I'm late to the party people.

    Oh hai xl and Ponita!

    Silly?!

    You mean this isn't a blog about the serious social issues blighting our world today?

    Oh right. I did wonder why there were so many old gay geezers, photographed against some truly horrendous decor in and amongst the social, media, news commentary.

    Damn. I think I need a drink. Who's going to join me?

  13. Mines a pint of Malibu and vodka with just a dash of coke please Roses. Fire up the Benson and Hedges Mr M and lets raise our glases to silly . The anon commentor is obviously an earnest type who should spend more time shaving her legs .

  14. Ladies and Gentlemen, the bar is open!

    Here's a bottle, I'm just going to roll myself a ciggie while you pour yourself a drink. Just leave that tequila for MJ, she'll get stroppy if you touch her drop.

    Beast, I'm sorry this lighter on the vodka, I'm saving it for Ms Boxer, I've put in some extra Barcardi, is that okay?

  15. Cyberpete, of course. Want me to go heavy on the tabasco? Mutley, where do you like your white to come from a cheeky German or a classy Burgundy?

    Where's Mago? He's the expert on whites.

    Don’t be afraid to say CROCS, Miss Leah.

    And I’m deadly serious about my hatred of them so it can’t be the Crocs posts that are too silly.

    PONITA: Silly? Well, of course it is... and we wouldn't have it any other way, now would we?
    But it's silly in a sexy, smutty kinda way. :-)


    You make it sound so tawdry.

    KAPI: I'd be worried of someone declared Infomaniac "sensible".

    I’m worried that your sensible evil twin has taken over.

    MAGO: A typo: "too sikky"?

    That sounds like vomit.

    Beast was sick on this blog yesterday so you may have a point.

    DAMIEN: Im with MR - and not just coz he is hot - I love a bit of silly :) - makes the serious more bearable :)

    If it’s a date you’re after, why not try our Fag, Hag and the Odd Slag Dating Service?

    LULU: It's the commentators that make your blog silly, the actual content is serious and scientific.

    Credit goes not to me but to the ancient Hellenistic philosophers who have guided my hand.

    Mr. Mutley, apparently.

    MUTLEY: I will have a nice dry white being as you asked Roses, also do you mind if I smoke? People are such fuddie duddies about fags these days...

    A change from your usual pint of Old Lesbian No 5.

    Mind where you put that fag butt.

    CYBERPOOF: I'll join you Roses.

  18. Wanting to be FIRST is NOT SILLY.

    But I do walk silly, so maybe that's what they meant?

  19. God SAVE US from silly. We certainly CANNOT HAVE THAT. Gracious me NO.

    ...one weeps.

    Walking bowlegged is not silly.

    It means you just had a good “horse ride”.

    There’s no need to bring the Lord into this.

  23. of all the words i could use to describe infomaniac, silly is not the first that springs to mind.....i will not be drawn any further mind

  24. As you know I was watching that thread the moment that anonymous posted her ‘silly’ statement. And let me say that Piggy was there to set the record straight...or at least correct her ass.

    Three cheers Piggy!

    Now where is that picture of Tazzy’s ass?

    Infomaniac silly? I wouldn’t have it any other way. Where did she come from anyway? Looking for some serious blog posts...look elsewhere. I prefer infomaniac to be light and salacious.

  25. MUTLEY: I always like a nice South African - chenin blanc does it for me...*puffs fag*

    This is the first I’ve seen you with a fag hanging out of your mouth.

    Do be careful you don’t get burned.

    EROS: Maybe she wants more nekkid people!

    Don’t confuse YOUR sordid desires with those of our anonymous readers.

    MANUEL: of all the words i could use to describe infomaniac, silly is not the first that springs to mind.....i will not be drawn any further mind

    I’ll take that as a thumbs up.

    Isn’t it enough that I accidentally called him “Sir”?

    We’ll never hear the end of this.

    We’ve all seen Tazzy’s arse

    It’s his COCK we want to see now!
