A Note From The Author About Commenting

Hello there everyone. I am growing weary of useless, snarky, and insulting comments that don’t further the conversation. If you don’t have anything nice to say, then just keep it to yourself. In the interest in keeping a more civil environment on the Internet, I will simply delete comments with any negativity in it. No, I am not afraid of negative comments. If you search in the comments, you will see that I have in the past engaged with such negative commentary. I am simply getting too old to spend time responding to fools who have nothing to add to my life. Besides, such comments don’t deserve to be seen associated with my website. By all means, feel free to disagree with me. Just do it civilly and smartly. Feel free to lambast me and insult me. Just do it in the privacy of your own little mind. Comments on posts are welcome so long as they are thoughtful. Please refrain from any comments that are rude, crude, and unoriginal. Don’t abuse the anonymity of the Internet. Imagine these to be stories told by a friend and respond in kind. Thought provoking and insightful comments are always welcome! Thanks. (Commenting is disabled on posts more than a year old)
