This is the actual reason why the fine folks at TSZ engage gpuccio. His arguments aren't very cogent. His story changes every time he opens his mouth. But once in a while he drops a gem like this, and that makes it worth your while.

I buy that for *some* of them (and definitely for you you troublemaker you).  

Some folke, however, I think have a white-knight syndrome.  Like debate with gpuccio is going to convince these mythical "onlookers".  Aint no onlookers reading through 1000 post threads dispersed among 3 blogs

either way, that's good shit right there I don't care who licked the paper

I think at this point UD has no onlookers.  There's a small regular readership of the usual suspects, who lack the intelligence, the education and/or the willingness to understand science.  And there's a much larger readership of, well, us.  I'd be surprised if many "undecideds" make their way to UD any more.  Dembski and Denyse are hardly household names, and no-one's heard of Gordon even in fucking Montserrat.

To a first approximation, UD is a comedy site and we're the only audience.
