Concerning Comments on this Blog

If you feel you have nothing to add: just say “Thumbs Up” or “Thumbs Down” or to save time, just “Swell” or “Nasty.”

If you know why you think what I wrote was swell (or nasty) you can always leave behind a sentence saying what that reason is. An extra sentence telling where you are coming from is always nice, for instance: “As your Former Soulwinning Partner I am appalled that you no longer believe in the absolute meaninglessness of religious pictures,” or, “As a persecuted teenager I like your theories about the inherent dignity of all youthkind.”

If you are a friend just visiting but have no opinion or don’t care to share it, you can always say “Hi, AR!” Pirate jokes always accepted.

Anonymous comments are ever welcome as well. If they are commercial in nature, I will delete them immediately.

And then there are those of you who are just longing to tell me a thing or two. Please, do.  I love people who can teach me. And even if you fail to teach me anything it will at least be entertaining to contemplate the fact that someone cared to take note of my ideas.

But most of all I beg you, my dear readers, to avoid being nice. Nice is a such a pale virtue. Be kind; or if you can’t be kind; be interesting; and if you can’t be interesting, be honest. Any real virtue will do.

Note: the spam filter eats comments with two or more links. Also, even though there are spaces in the comment form for a website, it is not required to put something in that space. You can comment without a website – just leave that space blank.

Most sincerely yours,



  1. Maybe I should have made a page like this. Atheists spammed my blog with awful stuff–like my husband will be a worm in hell because he is a Hindu and I’m Christian.
    Really nasty other stuff I won’t even write. I just deleted them-which caused further rude comments. Rudeness comes with all ideologies I suppose.


  2. Well, since pirate jokes are always accepted, I’d better get started! However, I will quickly make my apologies for the lameness of these jokes. Each one needs to be appropriately fitted with a wooden leg! bahaha…

    What kind of grades did the pirate get in school?

    Why do seagulls fly over the sea?
    Because if they flew over the bay, they’d be bagels!

    What do you call a pirate with a peg leg on ice?
    A protractor!!!

    What’s a pirate’s favorite golf shot?
    The Hook! Right into the water.

  3. I just started a blog of my own after following this one. it mostly deals with high school life but I’ve expanded it lately. I love this blog, its really just amazing. mine is called monochrome rainbows. I would be more than ecstatic if you would check it out 🙂 i’m aware this comment doesn’t match what this page on your blog is about but I wasn’t sure where I could post this for you to see. have an amazing day !


  4. I stumbled, (risky, for I am old and osteoporotic), upon your blog while sussing out general rules for the triolet form. I was delighted to find you, but also curious, as I did not find any current posts or comments. I will read and comment regularly if you are still up running. and still open for blog business. I like to consider myself a life-long poet, but am quick to add that my own estimation can be quite inflated. At least I try. I have had a WordPress blog or two, but they have been abandoned for writing with an aim to be published. I have learned that the reason I have not been widely published is because publishing houses are seeking only to publish posthumous work by poets of my caliber. Becoming older each day, I find this gives me hope. I must stop now and pry my tongue from my cheek. Hope to hear you are alive and writing, which, alas! am I.

    • That’s very amusing, Paula! And it’s always good to hear of someone who has made poetry a lifelong discipline. I’m still around, but on hiatus due to chaos in my life. I’m looking forward to resuming my literary activities sometime this year. Hope to see you around again.
