The O.C.

Originally published at "PRT Is A Joke" IS A JOKE v.1
Words written with wildcards (***, !!!, etc.) was the way we originally wrote
Ken Avidor, Ken, and Avidor.

*** doesn't just oversee the PRTJ website and The *Blog, he's also busy telling other people what they should (and shouldn't) have on their pages (especially if it means more mentions of him and his quality work). It's almost like he can't help it--

:: "Click on the "news" link on these websites for the latest PRT news. Anything about the Taxi 2000 vs J. Edward Anderson lawsuit?"[1]

:: "For once you are right... Are you the only PRT website that's mentioned the lawsuit? Did I miss any others? How about a follow up on... the Pioneer Press article you linked to (but did not discuss)?"

:: "what's the deal with your Google News Search? Why does it exclude the LRN website and my website?"

:: "You should have a disclaimer saying so[2] on your Google search button. (Source, plus comments 3 and 4)

:: "That's really interesting... you should explain what you mean by this on your web site."

:: "All the usual boasting about their non-existing system... the flashy animation [ellipses included]" (Source, plus comments)

:: "The PRTers... don't even want to spell my name for fear that someone will do a Google search on me and my PRT skeptic web site."
(Source, Background)

:: "we are kicking PRT keyword butt on google, yahoo, msn, wiki,everywhere." Source

He does love his Google linkage points. One sure hopes that *** never Googles PRT, and then repeats it while excluding links to his pages. One further hopes that he never calculates that the hit-differential is about 1.5% (the difference between this and this). One hopes that for his sake. Because we care.


A. tBlog informs me that PRTJJ has already received 434 visitors. And this is only the first week! Note to self: Apparently technology and humor sells.

B. Editorial decision: from now on, Get On Board! PRT will be abbreviated "gPRT." Like this:



[1] Incidentally, Get On Board! PRT does not have a News link, it has a "What's New" link, which leads to a "New" page. S is a very important letter, you illy anti-PRT wea el .

[2] that Get On Board! PRT has an editorial policy against linking to information that is known to be false.
