“If you’re forced to rely on random blog commenters to make a point about the prevalence of some form or another of disagreeable behavior, you’ve pretty much made exactly the opposite point.”
Sounds good to me. If I had one quibble I would make it ‘Drum’s Law’ since the semantics of law naming usually call for last names.
We at BJ have a dispensation to defy semantics, because ‘F’s Law’ is too vague and ‘Cole’s Law’ sounds silly.
“Cole’s Law” sounds tasty, particularly since it’s lunchtime.
Nice play on phonetics.
Filthy East-coast centric clocks. I’m just finishing my third cup of coffee.
Yes, “Kevin’s Law” sounds too much like something the California legislature might have passed to. . .I don’t know; someone cleverer than I should be able to think of something appropriate.
“F.’s Law” sounds like a foreign euphemism, somehow.

Yeah, “Kevin’s Law” sounds like a law forced through on emotional appeal, lobbied for by a group of grieving mothers.
It really came to light with that Lanny Davis piece in the Wall Street Journal. It’s unbelievable that a legitimate news source like the WSJ would allow such shoddy practices even in an op-ed. Accusing a candidate/party of being anti-semetic based on blog comments, not blog postings but blog comments. That’s borderline David Glass material. I highly doubt Davis had the wherewithal or moxie to plant those comments, but what’s to stop him or anyone else from doing that? And for that matter who can clearly know the intent of any blog comment? Would anyone be shocked to find out that supporters of LGF, Malkin, Red State, etc. were planting over the top comments on Kos, Huffington, Atrios, etc. just so they could turn around and point them out as being proof to their points? And of course it’s a two way street, that scenario is just as likely when swapping the sites listed. The WSJ should be ashamed that they let such reprehensible journalism practices appear on their pages.
No. That would never happen.
“We at BJ”
The euphemisms here are getting “suggestive”, I’m just sayin’…
Agreed. “Kevin’s Law” sounds like it’s a response to an abducted toddler.
The Other Steve
Cherry Picking Law
Although Darrell is gonna be dissapointed by this one.
Why be limited by the word “law”? “Cole’s Commandment” has a nice ring to it. As does “Tim’s Decree”
For what it’s worth, “Cole’s Law” is an instrumental song by Steve Kimock. It’s very good :)
