Response to my offer to add new people to the automatic emailing list has been impressive, but there's still time to come on down...or to get on in.
Just email me with word that you'd like to be on the list, and I'll put you in. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm also still getting "hate" responses--mostly from the same tired old people. Some moron who goes by the name of RINO Safari has been banned here for constantly using ad hominem attacks. He then has the utter gall to claim they are not slurs. He continues to try to post here, and I eliminate them as fast as I see them. I used the urinating on the living room floor example before. If you urinate on this floor, you are not welcome. Once you're banned, you are out forever.
Here's another example. It's like getting a restraining order against someone. A restraining order cannot be enforced every minute or second of the day, but it still exists, and if you are caught, there are consequences. Consider a banishment here a restraining order. Sure, you may be able to post, but you're doing so contrary to the laws of this blog. So, in a sense you are breaking a law. That goes for Al Baldasaro who as a State Rep should not be breaking laws...or restraining orders.
In the future, I will simply eliminate...immediately...illegal posting from anyone who has been banned. It'll be as if they never existed.
How to define ad hominem attack. Well, let's just give a couple of examples. "You need to get new medications"...that would be an ad hominem attack. "You need help"...a favorite line of the RINO moron...that would be ad hominem attack. You offer no valid arguments...merely assault someone.. Calling someone a moron...that would be an ad hominem attack...and I only do it after I've proven that in my humble opinion the moron status is valid. In other words, yes, as the writer here I allow myself more leeway than people who want to pop in with one line slurs. I spend dozens of hours a month doing this blog...literally hundreds of hours a year. That entitles me to determine what are slurs and who is not welcome. I don't do it with zest...since I'm a big advocate of free speech, but free speech does not mean you can say anything, anywhre. That's just the way it is...if you don't like it, maybe you should try to get your own blog or forum...then you could ban me...not that I would ever go to such blogs.
When you enter one's house, don't urinate on the living room floor without being asked to leave and never return. When you enter this domain, you will be banned if you whip it out....pen or urinating devise...and start too ooze liquid.
Civil humanoids are still welcome here...and to be put on the automatic list by dropping me the line at email@example.com.
