When I read the name of the article, I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by the article. It was funny and I enjoyed reading about Ad Hominem Varients. It gave me a good chuckle.

I really had no idea what the definitions of spoof, spam, lurk and lag were until I read this article. It started kind of slow, but two or three paragraphs in it got good. Spoof is unattributed communication. Spam is an excess of communication. Lurk is a refusal to communicate. Lag is a mechanical delay in communication. Fun stuff.

I never knew what a link bomb or google bomb was. Sounds kind of serious, but I guess it is more of a kind of prank. Some believe it can be used to "brain wash" people for whatever reason.
