This just in via PM from Tommy Tech Guy at OS Hq:
The poet/philosphers have seized control of the building. I've locked myself in the mop closet with only my laptop, a bagel and a box of apple juice, afraid to make a sound for fear I will be found and forced to fix the platform so OS will work the way it should again. Again? I mean, finally.
Here's the deal: Two guys came storming into the office on Friday armed with what they said was "a brilliant idea." Jake had called in "well" again and Kerry was asleep at the controls, again. These two guys - Art and James - or maybe it was one guy with two voices named Art James. Dunno. Anyways these two voices are talking about philosophy and Fat Tire beer and more philosophy and speaking in short phrases, like poetry but nothing rhymes a-and...glug glug glug...they wake Kerry up and then tie him up and wheel him into the corner with an X-Box to play with.
Anyways, I was in the mop closet taking a snack break when this happened. I quickly locked the door from the inside.
This guy or guys kept speaking in short phrases and philosophical quotations until I figured out they want OS to get worse and worse until it crashes for good. It's a Hegelian analogy, the voice called James, said, for what's happening to the U.S. The spam is to OS what the brainwashing by politicians is to the TV watchers. After the election in November the politicians that have spent the most money on TV ads will be in complete control of the country and will turn it into a giant forced labor camp.
