I created this blog to get people talking, and I’m thrilled there’s been some back-and-forth in the comments over the past few weeks.
However, this is my playground. And if you want to play here, please note that if you are commenting for the first time, I need to approve your first post. Up until today, I’ve approved about 98 percent of those (the two percent rejected are generally spammers who get through the filter).
But I’m not going to approve you if I suddenly get three comments in a row, all from different Hotmail accounts, all essentially saying the same thing, all from the exact same IP.
Please. I didn’t just sign on to the Internet yesterday.
I’m not going to approve you if you swear or call me names.
Also, I’m not a fat soccer mom. I’m a statuesque Little League parent.
And, for the love of Strunk & White, please attempt to use punctuation. I’m not going to ding anyone for missing a comma here and there, but I will shake my pica stick at the computer screen and mutter angrily about the rampant misuse of the possessive.
