Spambots and Sofas

Jon Ronson always seems to turn up some interesting aspects of society. Sometimes however, it seems as though he’s turned over a stone and found something particularly unpleasant underneath.

For example, I found it very difficult to watch the three specimens sitting on this sofa. The one in the middle, in particular, strikes me as someone I would find it very difficult to warm to under any circumstance. His name is Dan O’Hara, lecturer in literature at the University of Cologne. His rationale for doing what he did to Jon Ronson (when he finally reveals it at the end of the video) seemed to me to be thin, unconvincing, and insincere.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
