To All the Haters
Here's a heads-up for all the people that hate me -- and I am certain you are legion. It is fine to be a hater. I don't deny that you have your reasons. However, you've got to find a more appropriate way to express your hate than posting anonymous blasts in my comments. This blog is for your enjoyment. It's not a place to drop creepy, somewhat threatening hints, pass blanket judgement on people you've never met, or post, for the entire world to see, concerns that perhaps would have been better served had they brought up directly to me. Lest you suffer the crack backs of Noodle's Mom, take a long look at your monitor before pressing "send." I do.
All of this being said, I have no problem with your barbs if they're funny, if they relate directly to material being posted, if they're meant in the spirit of semi-harmless fun. And if you are revved up and thinking, "Boy, that Lefty, what a jerk. He bags on everyone," try to remember -- and if you know me, it shouldn't be difficult -- that I save the cruelest jibes for myself.
Again, let me state: this is NOT a place for the airing of non-blog-related gripes. If I have wronged you, or if you have imagined that I have wronged you, or if I have offended your sense of what is right in the world, I invite you to contact me directly. And for pete's sake, don't fire off a rocket and then sign it "Anonymous." Seriously. How lame.
We now return you to the fun that was, is and will be this blog.
