Right then, after a few nights of actual sleep and probably thinking about it entirely too much, I'd like to apologize to Chris and Dan for going off on 'em a few days ago. If you guys want to post here, feel free, but please keep in mind those etiquette suggestions from a few days ago. Chris, it should go without saying that your old nickname? Not acceptable.
Which is the entire problem, really. I keep thinking some things go without saying, and folks keep proving that, no, there must be the saying.
I don't think there should have to be the saying.
Meaning, there won't be. There will just be the deleting if need be.
Not thrilled with creating an environment so exclusive that I wouldn't be allowed in if I hadn't created it. Mainly because the concept gives me a headache. And also, because I did notice that the three people I've unceremoniously kicked out -- I'm including Darren Madigan here -- were all white guys. Add that to how several of us went out of our way trying to explain to Aussie Girl why she was crossing the line, and, well, I'm not entirely sure where I'm going with this. But I ain't liking it.
So, short version, anyone can post here, as long as you're doing that "worthwhile contribution to the conversation" thang.
If you're wondering how to determine whether or not something represents a worthwhile contribution in my opinion, that's dead simple. Read the other comments. If, on preview, yours jumps out like a sore thumb, that's a good indication that you maybe don't want to hit the post button.
And yes, some of the regulars violate them etiquette suggestions. You're right, I am hypocritical, play favorites and am generally not a nice person. Which begs the question as to why you'd want to post on the web site of such a person. That's right, you wouldn't. Buh-bye.
Not np, because I don't have the cd with me: Nutopia, Meg Lee Chin, Piece and Love
Was that too bitchy?
