It's you. Of course it's you. You aren't trying to imply that it's me, are you?

It's Barbelith's link to your site. Blog it.

It's your reference to Derek's new G4. Blog it.

It's your link to my Metafilter comment about your Metafilter comment about Barbelith's link to your comment about Derek's new G4. Blog it.

Let's face it, any forum where Brad has to play the grownup is PRETTY WACKY!!!

I have no idea what you're talking about.

If I can guess the permalink anchor for this comment, that'd be as self-referential as you can get.

Damn. So close. Instead, here's a link to Zeldman's (hypothetical) link to his Metafilter comment about someone else's Metafilter comment about Barbelith's link to someone else's comment about Derek's new G4.
