Today my friend Sean pointed me in the direction of Kevin Collier's awesome continuing series, Get To Know an Internet Commenter, over on McSweeney's. As the site describes the series: "Kevin Collier searches the Internet for people who comment a lot, then copies and pastes a fair representation of their output."

Comments are so often seen as ephemeral that it's awesome to see them put under the magnifying glass and admire the individual portraits of people that emerge. Of the eleven commenters profiled, some of my favorites include:

EPG Mr. Justin MD's Yahoo Answers

Answer to "is lime wire illegal?
"Limewire is not illegal. From the way i see it Limewire is a free source to download music you can download the music you just cant sell it again and say its yours. like if your just putting music on your Ipod then that's okay"

Source cited:
I use Limewire

Answer to "Can i have and example of a palindrome sentence?"
"A Palindrome Is Anything That Can Be Spelled Backwards (Example) Nebraska-Aksarben"

Profitendieu's opinions on MSNBC stories:

"This brat makes me want to vomit. Vomit! Vomit! Vomit!"

On BIEBER TRIES TO CALM FANS AFTER DEATH THREATS:
"Justin Bieber makes me want to vomit. A singing fetus desperately seeking attention at every turn. Bleckkk!"

SIFI GUY's movie reviews at Rottentomatoes.
