Thanks to jack for this:
“my post on friday about tabloid journalism and people being paid to write each other’s personal site content– it was a joke. ›i’m sorry if it wasn’t clear to all readers, because tom seems like a nice guy to me. ›i certainly have never been someone very good at detecting where fact and fiction start to blur for anyone besides myself, and even when i do, i sometimes like to take things over the line. ›..but jokes aren’t any good if you have to explain them, so i’ll just leave it at that. ›if i did, i’d have a bike i still wouldn’t peddle.
“i was not joking, however, about being single.”
