Hey Scott, just as a reminder for the future, you can usually find things you've lost online through Google. For examlple, when I searched "Great Debate Dilbert Blog", the first link it came up with was a link to the page that no longer exists. HOWEVER, if you click the little "Cached" link under the description you get to this page:

http://72.14.253.104/search?q=cache:eBcuJBr7j5MJ:dilbertblog.typepad.com/the_dilbert_blog/2007/06/the_great_debat.html+Great+Debate+dilbert+blog&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=us&client=firefox-a

And from this page you can view the whole article and many (probably not all) of the comments as well.

Hope this helps! Later!

Thanks to Google's cache, I can repost my original comment:


What's dangerous?

Ignorance.

No, I'm not saying stupidity is the problem -- lack of intelligence only tends to perpetuate ignorance.

We as a species need to stop ignoring things, especially one another.

Hand-in-hand with ignorance walks xenophobia. Watch out for them both.

You don't have to be wasteful not to have to deal with the last little 'dog's ear' of soap. Get it wet, get the new bar wet. Press old soap scrap into new bar.

Your last comment comforts me. As egotistical and selfish as you pretend to be, I like that you value the debates and ideas that your posts bring up rather than just your own words. Now I'm looking forward to some selfish, egotistical post droning on about the Chiclet soap you think we care about. Oh...

(Don't tell, but I care a great deal about your soap. It's almost to the point, embarrassingly enough, that I'm a Scott Adams fangirl...)

FYI: By writing a post saying there is no post is in actuality a post!

A post on Sunday that says no post on Sunday. Isn't that contradictory?

[why is Dilbert's tie always U shaped, even where there's no wind and he's not moving?]

It is what happens when you have some belly, you are spending to much time on a chair, don't care much about your tie that you are required to wear (your very few ones, btw), so it ends up with the tip fliped up. Dilbert's one is just the standard comic exageration of the fenomenon. I had myself two of those till my wife noticed.

[That sucks. I liked my comment. What was it? I think it was about how ignorance is what is really dangerous, how it sets us back...]

It is not wise to do much effort on a discussion that it is so problematic ... Hear about the thing about the profet depictions and related issues? Better never mind about it and look on the bright side of life, hehe.

I'm glad Google cached it - you really called me out as the debate p*ssy I am.


I wanted it as a reminder to, well, stop being such a debate p*ssy.

Just one word, or URL in this case:

If TypePad keeps crapping on your posts, why do you keep using it? You always post about people doing stupid things, but to keep using something that consistently destroys your work seems quite irrational. Then again, most of us use Microsoft Windows too...

I'm sure (judging by all the requests for a re-debate) people would happily regenerate all the comments. Really.

Or have received a death threat^W^W^W^Wbeen persuaded by someone that it was an insensitive post?

Am I going crazy, or does some of the artwork in today's Dilbert strip, particularly the last panel of Wally drinking out of the mug, look suspiciously familiar?...

Phil Smith

That sucks. I liked my comment. What was it? I think it was about how ignorance is what is really dangerous, how it sets us back...

A lot of evil is done by people who IGNORE things, specifically the rights and lives and feelings of others -- and to go further, the sustainability of our species on this planet.

Walking hand-in-hand with that brand of ignorance is the way ordinary people ignore what is really going on, instead paying attention to what is fed to them via mainstream media.

We are (as a people, especially in the United States) complacent. We pay attention to the wrong things, as if the things we brush off could not possibly bite us on our collective ass.

Stupidity can be forgiven, but ignorance can be corrected. Enough said.

You could copy that post from Google's cache to get it back. I used that to read it.

Isn't this a post, or is it just some strange metaphysical exestential oxymoron to confuse me first thing on a monday morning??

Rasputin

Yeah right!

I'll point out the obvious. Your lawyer told you to take it off because lots of silly religious fanatics, aka stupid dangerous people, will find it offensive. Could you tell us which world view "won" and is considered most dangerous?

I'm guessing democracy.

Was the loss of the post and its comments a random occurrence, an act of God, or of the free will of the programmers at Typepad?
