  1. How do we know that “Julia” is not just an alter-ego of “John?”

  2. This is how, Mr. Smarty Pants!

  3. Holy sh*t, my blog got linked to sfsignal! I gotsta go sign me up for some Google ads, and quick.

  4. Julia, don’t hurry too much with these ads just yet. The links in the comments all have the rel=nofollow attribute, so you won’t get any “link juice”.

    You did get a link, and people will click on it. But you get that any time you write a comment yourself. 😉

    And John, that doesn’t prove anything. I’m sure we all believe you’re perfectly capable of opening a LiveJournal blog yourself, using an alias, where you can freely express your love of Haikus…
