The Flame Wars Over at AL

Something I find immensely amusing: Over at Anonymous Lawyer, the comments in the vast majority of AL's posts devolve into mini-flame wars. Seriously. Like the comments to AL's most recent post.

Almost every time, one anonymous poster takes offense or strongly disagrees with another anonymous poster and the name-calling begins. This is shortly followed by baseless insults and useless mockery. Even Rufus (of Running With Lawyers "fame") has been sucked into the melee.

Why do I give three (albeit short) paragraphs to this aspect of AL's blog? Given the satirical nature of AL's posts, the irony is palpable. And there's nothing I like more than a strong dose of irony. (Preferably for someone else, of course.)
