    Yeah this is real it's been in the news for a while; my guess is they will maintain as two separate platforms but improve integration and also add a following process to posterous. Much like wordpress.com blogs have

    There are perhaps a few references to "mongs" and retarded people in that review. Did we go too far this time or is it still funny?
