Awesomest Comment Section Instructions du Jour CXLVIII

The road to hell is truly paved with internet comments.

Cognizant of this, financial blogger Barry Ritholtz provides the following instructions to would-be commenters on his blog, as discovered here:

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

Just. Awesome.
