Which is worse, a garden-variety moron or a zealot?

Remember Mahir Cagri? The anonymous Turkish doofus who welcomed women to his home page saying "I Kiss you! Who is want to come TURKEY I can invitate ..... She can stay my home ........" It's four years later, and his new web site -- IKissYou.org -- has apparently been offlined by radical censors at a Turkish ISP.

"I payed their money yearly 4 months ago, and they guarantee eveything me," Mahir writes at his site's new host. "BUT when I added my words about WAR and Love&Peace my site,They dont like this and closed my site suddenly."

This is the same anonymous doofus who suddenly found two million people gawking at his web site in 1999. And what did he do? He asked people to remember those less fortunate, and put up a donation fund for world charities.

"We must work together for hunger childrens,war area childrens, human right, animal right environment, homeless--we can visit and help together this people..."

"Life short time-we can died suddenly.

"Please 'Peace-Peace-Peace."

His broken-English plea only made his celebrity more poignant. He always remained an innocent, even after being swooped into the speedy half-life of an internet meme.

But unfortunately, even four years later, he wasn't much of a webmaster. "They closed FTP too for I dont transfer my site other hosting fast," he posts now. It's not clear why; the people of Turkey -- which shares a border with Iraq -- have fiercely opposed pre-emptive strikes by the United States. Mahir's call for peace apparently rubbed someone the wrong way. Now the man who "like to be friendship from different country" has almost no voice at all.

But Mahir retains a faith in his unseen internet audience. And this is one dotcom meme who won't become a casualty of world geopolitics. Mahir promises he'll be back with a new site on May 1.

And until then, he leaves his readers with three final words.

"I kiss uuu !!!"

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
