Because you think it's necessary to start drama over some silly ass need to ban thousands of people rather than simply set comments friends only, I'm doing just that. Funny how now I don't have to deal with your silly ass drama, and I didn't have to ban 65,535 people to do it. Amazing!
If you're actually on my friends list, check out that post if you feel like watching some silly ass flamewars.
Update: PS: I run my own mailserver network, and it's meaningless to sign me up for hundreds of maillists or to try to mailbomb me. I deal with at least one joejob a year, and have an email architecture designed to deflect about 40,000 messages per hour. You're wasting nobody's time but your own.
