This is not in the comment thread on the linked page, but sometimes the email that site managers get related to gumbabies is even stranger than the comments. The email was passed along to a friend of mine who passed it on to me with the blogger’s permission.
The blogger expressed bafflement that commenters are “asking David to intercede on their behalf with… God I presume.” From some other comments in the thread, it appears that perhaps Blaine was alleged to have helped someone win the lottery.
By the way, I say “British tech-blogger Ian Betteridge” merely as a guess. Like so many of us, dude does not have a page explaining his blog or himself at all. The more I do this work, the more tired I get of this kind of stupid oversight. Betteridge was clever enough to title this article “ON David Blaine,” making it clear this wasn’t Blaine’s site, but then he undoes that useful work by failing to describe who HE is.
