I'm somewhat puzzled Howard, what's it all about? ???

Clicky linky Alan - it's an automatic sycophantic comment generator for Flickr.  :2funny:

I'm not too sure how I should react to this. If you are inferring  any comments I make on Flickr are sycophantic I fail to see the funny side I'm afraid. >:(

Oh dear!

Alan, I know how you absolutely hate those formulaic and trite plaudits that are so prevalent on Flickr - that's the whole point; clearly the guy who developed this little script feels exactly the same.

I reckon that carpet bombing some of the main perpetrators of this silly habit in return might even be a bit of fun.

I think Graham got the joke.

Apologies for my reaction, I obviously got hold of the wrong end of the stick.
