If you’re an aficianado of local blogs you’re sure to have read the Buhne Tribune. BTW, is it pronounced Buhner as in Buhne St. in Eureka or Buhne (no r) as in Buhne St. in King Salmon? I guess if it were “Buhner” it would also have to be Tribuner.
Anyway, yesterday the anonymous blogger was outed by Kevin Hoover of the Arcata Eye. The Humboldt County blogosphere has been all atwitter ever since. I thought I’d add my twit. The Times-Standard article covering the outing quoted a whole bunch of folks about how anonymous blogging is kinda lame. I’m a little miffed that they didn’t ask me. After all, I wrote about the lameness of anonymous blogging and in particular mentioned the Captain, way back when! The Captain graciously quoted my post under his “Raves”, extracting the word “disturbing”. I appreciate it as I got occasional hits from the link. Thanks, Capn’!
Just to reinforce the lameness of anonymous posting of any kind, read the stupid anonymous “Comments” on the Times-Standard article.
Anyway, welcome to the real world Mr. Hurley!
CPR, I’ll try to help with your anonymity. I’ll greet you with a blank stare next time I see you…and no more kicking.
I’d like to try to remain semi-nonomous or is that synonymous. Fill in your own synonyms here. Please be kind.
BTW, this is done at home on my own computer.
But this is supposed to be the tech blog!
Darn you Hank. Considering the memory of the average blogger six months would have been enough to allow CPR to sink back beneath the surface. Leave Joel alone.
And the “duplicate Digg effect”? Now THAT one will sail over everyone’s head for sure or send them scampering to Wikipedia to find out what you are talking about.
I’m trying to re-establish my anonymity. It’s going well, I think.
Bob gets the law named after him because he pointed out the problem of anonymous comments before it was obvious to the rest of us.
You mean Joel gets to be outed twice! What fun!
I guess it’s kind of like the way couples renew their vows, or something. The blogger is outed, everyone forgets — out him again six months later!
Then again, you could compare it to the duplicate Digg effect.
I know CPR’s real identity. I was just thinking he might want to out himself given the bruhaha over anonymous blogging.
Thanks Bob. Well known Blogsters like CPR and Greg (Gregslist) have nice blogs and because the trolls and other electronic graffiti artists don’t don’t spend as much time there it is possible to get a word in edgewise once in a while. Same things goes here on your blog. The Carson Park Rangerâ€™s real identity is known in some circles but I will not be the one to â€œoutâ€ him. But you can use the power of search engines to figure it out. Most people have no idea how many tracks they leave in cyberspace.
Well, I don’t mind the clutter. And I love having a law named after me. Who is Greg, anyway? Besides, I don’t just not allow anonymous comments. I’ve been railing about anonymous posting for a while. BTW, just who is the Carson Park Ranger…?
If the “it” you refer to is the street you are correct. If it is H.H. Buhne I am correct. As you pointed out, just like Del Nort, regional interpretations can change words from other languages into new pronunciations.
I agree with you about the direct relationship between anon’s and ugly or useless comments. But why Morse’s Law as apposed to Greg’s Law or any other blogger that does not allow anonymous comments?
Better yet, why don’t you post this subject of correct pronunciation on your own blog so we can debate it over there as opposed to cluttering up Bobs?
to cluttering up Talking Tech.
It’s “Booner” just like it’s Del Nort.
On the subject of anonymity, I can atest to the fact that the more anonymous comments there are on a blog, the more likely the thread will be vulgar, puerile, and uninteresting.
Let’s call this phenomenon “Morse’s Law.”
The correct pronunciation of Buhne (the original Captain H.H. Buhne) is difficult to explain as it ends with a “swallowed” R sound. So the closest thing would be something like â€œBoone-nahâ€.
Of course that was the original captain. The new Capt. can call himself anything he wants, so if he says he is “Boone” like in Daniel Boone that is his right.
Capt. Buhne (by whatever name) insists there is no “r” at the end of Buhne.
