I forget if I’ve mentioned this before:

Early on in my analysis of these posts it became pretty clear that many commenters were female. My advisor wondered, is this because women are more inclined to behave in public fan behavior? Do the same kind of comments get written to sports stars?

Here’s another indication, then, that males do in fact write comments like these, and yes, sports stars are an object of these comments. These three comments themselves are not so interesting (although the commenter appears to return three months later, which is kind of out of the ordinary), but I thought it was sweet he was writing mash notes to a WNBA star.

Please note, blogger works at Google, further supporting my hypothesis that PageRank is a popularity contest which merely inflates the importance of Silicon Valley stars’ personal blogs, causing these gumbaby train wrecks to begin with.
