The GR Responds July 9, 2006
Damn, we’re amazed that so many of you are as into the Darrenator saga as we are. We’re thinking that if big daddy Darren weren’t off trying to contact everyone’s employers, that he might actually be able to take his show on the road and make some real loot.
We want to clarify though, for those of you who failed to notice the complete lack of ads on our site, that we certainly aren’t making any money off this guy. We’re in it for the chicks and because we’re really hoping to get a job reporting for the Wall Street Journal. And for the geniuses over at Metafilter who think that this is all a viral marketing scheme to pump up the site (or our links as one of you suggested)… pffft. We got the original info in a forward just like a lot of you did. Certainly, if this thing is a hoax (and we’re still guessing it’s not) we’ve been duped just like everyone else.
Another myth to clear up is that the real Darren probably hasn’t been posting comments here. Clever though they are, just about anyone can go and post a comment as “Darren”, “Darren S.” or “Darren’s Mom.” (Go ahead, try it now, it’s killer. You can even post a comment as “Chodeo”, “George W. Bush” or “Lorena Bobbit” if you really want to. Woohoo.) We did get a kick out of the fake Darren posts, and especially enjoyed hearing from Darla Darrenator. We’ve done our best to keep every comment up there, because we believe in freedom. Keep ‘em coming.
Finally, if you emailed us about Darren or a stalker of your own, we apologize for not responding. Our ISP is weak sauce and our web engineer is a recovering crack addict, and consequently, we can’t reply to our gonzorangers email yet. Hopefully we’ll square that away soon, but until then we’re always listenning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
