The tombstone for Ilkka’s blog persona effectively slams all the bloggers who thought his farewell was a joke or a political tragedy:
Monday, September 25, 2006
A reader asked me not to delete this blog so that some spammer wouldn’t grab it. So I will leave this post as the tombstone for this ugly little blog that brought out the vilest in me and has now left me in deep shame for the rest of my life. Always remember this, kids: you may not really be as witty and edgy as you think you are, the Internet amplifies everything, especially your most ridiculous stupidity, limits usually exist for a good reason, your imaginary enemies are not the same as the real breathing people, and regardless of their labels, all people are individuals with feelings, fears and hopes that you should respect.
