"LingPipe, I hate you"

Actually, no, I do not hate LingPipe. But someone does. It is the entertaining aspect of Sitemeter that led me to this discovery.

Occasionally I check my Sitemeter page view details because it's comforting to see that people actually do read my blog (even if y'all don't comment, thpppt!) . But far more entertainment value is gained from the information about how someone came to my site. I can see what search words brought someone here. I've been collecting some of the more amusing ones and I've been meaning to post about it, but today I discovered someone had gotten to my blog by searching Google for, and I quote, "lingpipe ihate you".

I don't know what deviltry the evil duo at LingPipe is up to, but they appear to have made an enemy.
