Bashing Bashman

A new parody blawg, How Appalling, has sprung up poking fun at Howard Bashman's ubiquitous appellate blawg How Appealing. I think it's pretty funny, but apparently Howard doesn't have too great a sense of humor when it comes to such things: he allegedly removed his site's link to the Greedy Clerks board after some of the posters started criticizing him.

For the record, I'm a big fan of How Appealing and read it daily. My readers will note that I frequently post things I originally find there and credit it with a "via" link. My advice to Howard is to lighten up. He should be honored to be well known enough to be a viable subject of parody.
