  • So, you know how Tina Fey called out commenters from the messageboards in her Golden Globes acceptance speech? She’s started a flamewar!

Tina says: “DianeFan thinks I have a smug smile. I don’t know her. I don’t what I did to her. Sometimes (I take it personally), but not too much. I don’t read it too much.” Now, DianeFan has posted: “I’m famous. She mentioned BabsonLacrosse too. Sorry Tina Fey but I still don’t think you deserved to win.” Sigh. Giving the interwebs a bad name.
