Thanks for that, noodles! I’ve been wanting to say it myself for some time but for some reason decided against it for fear of being castigated as a grumpy old man. I shall not hold back from the ranting in future.
On the one hand maybe there are some people out there who read blogs yet somehow haven’t discovered xkcd. On the other hand, the more places I see it the more mainstream it feels, and we can’t have that!
