I think the girl's name was Littia Schwarz. There is no news article, only a few obituaries.

@13 Both 'mice' and 'mouses' are acceptable plural forms for computer mouse. 'Mice' is more common, but it doesn't matter which you use.

@6 That's what I meant of course. I got it backwards again.

(Actually I just assumed @2's correction was accurate and didn't bother to think it through. It's been a rough morning.)

@9 At least zip can be used as a verb. Who the fuck 'gifs' something?

I have been grousing about this all morning.

-'gif', (always said with a hard 'g' by the way) has never ever been used by anyone as a verb. And they stopped being a big deal 5 years ago.
-'yolo' is an acronym. The indicated phrase is not by any means new or interesting.
-Super PAC and Higgs boson are not words.
-Superstorm is no different from super storm.

Which leaves Eurogeddon and Nomophobia. Yawn. I'm truly offended by the sorry state of oxfordian lexicography. Can we not do better?

@1,3 Yeah. I think I'm going to give slog a rest for a while. I'll check back after the election :(
Sep 5, 2012 Danger commented on Score One for the Haters and Trolls.
There has been a long-running debate about whether female blogger/internet personalities should maintain some level of anonymity to avoid personal attacks by the unhinged fringe. I've never been able to decide if that's wise or not (it is certainly depressing), but what can you do? How does the mostly progressive and supportive online community relegate the haters?

And commenter/vile-spewer anonymity itself is such a double-edged sword. It has allowed for an unprecedented level of free speech, but removes the social shaming stigmas that keep most people from going totally bananas in meat-space.

This is so depressing. Why don't you ask Jen to write an occasional atheist or feminist piece for slog or something? Bundle the hate with all the vitriol the stranger already laughs off.
Jun 26, 2012 Danger commented on A Correction to Savage Lovecast episodes 181 and 297; or, In Defense of Cosmo (ugh).
@9 I assumed that 181 was the first instance. Thanks @tal for doing the leg work that I never would have. You could probably get two subscriptions to Cosmo for that $50.
