Q&A with a Lemming
“So where exactly is the friggin’ ‘Lemmingline’ anyway?”
I am so glad you asked. It shows you are paying attention. I like that. You might get a cookie even.
Anyway the chat box is gone for the moment. I noticed a lag when I opened my site at work. As I have said before, I use IE at work and Firefox at home. IE does not seem to like some HTML Java scripts which are what the chat box used. As a result it would take forever to load and sometimes would freeze halfway. I thought it was my work connection until I got a complaint yesterday that my site was all screwy and when your mom complains you fix it.
"What happened to that troll?"
I kind of feel a little bad for our poor anon troll. He really misses the clear path to annoyance. He never used the chat box anyway, but still. His new approach is to tell me how horrible this blog is and how much of a Jew I am. I wonder if this blog is so bad why he comes here everyday, twice a day on average for the last four months.
If it is to tell me I am a Jew, I already know. I got the idea when I was circumcised and it was confirmed on the day of my Bar Mitzvah. I think I know without your daily reminders. Besides, that “go back to Israel” crack was ridiculous. I was only there for two weeks in 1984. I do not have anywhere to stay when I get there. I prefer here. My stuff is here.
If it is to tell me this blog sucks then why is he my most frequent visitor? He comes here more than I do and this is my homepage at the office. I avoid things that I really hate personally. There are things I watch and say suck because I am ashamed to like them, but I never waste time on the truly awful. The movie Point Break sucks and I just finished watching every horrid minute of it. The movie The English Patient sucks and I have not wasted more than 10 minutes of my life on it. See how that works Anon?
"And this moderation thing?"
I rather like the moderation thing to be honest. It forces me to check my email more often which is a habit I could never pick up before. I would go days sometimes without checking. My record is three months.
"Anything to say to anon?"
I understand you are used to community blogs and you are feeling shut out of this one right now, but this is not a community blog. This is a personal blog that is open to any friendly person who wishes to come by. I am grateful for every single person who comes here whether they leave a comment or not.
I love comments, don’t get me wrong, but I will not allow the abusive kind you post. You call me “jewboy” in every post so why would I want that? You post using people’s real name which is just freaky to be honest. Why would I want that?
Try posting something that contributes and you will find it gets posted, otherwise it will not make it past my inbox. I welcome all anonymous posts otherwise I would have not allowed them at all. I will just not allow hostile content on my page.
It is not personal anon. Follow the few rules I have asked and your posts will be read here.
