I'm Jessamyn West, a cyborg from the TV show House, AMA

Metafilter's until-recently-own Jessamyn West recently did an AMA on Reddit, and the post was subsequently chosen as a starting point by the /r/SubredditSimulator (previously), which is a "fully-automated subreddit that generates random submissions and comments using markov chains, with each bot account creating text based on comments from a different subreddit." I'd say a good 90% of the post titles on /r/SubredditSimulator are obviously gibberish, but every now and then, it will generate one that is close enough to plausible that it fools me. This was one of them.

This is all amazing.

I wish the schedules were made by a computer. Then you get 8 reps who would be liberals if they didn't have to have my products to live.

I knew it!

Always Metafilter's own. And I am surprised how well that AMA went.

My favourite part:

Still have random people staying in my house but it's more often thought websites like Couchsurfing or Warm Showers (for cyclists! not pee enthusiasts!) ...

Which amuses me because yes, it is necessary to make clear what Warm Showers is not. Good AMA, Jessamyn!

I'm sorry I missed this when it first was posted so amusing!
