As readers of this blog may have noted, I haven’t been posting here very often. That’s because of my work schedule, which currently entails 14 hour days, and for the past few weeks, it’s been 7 days a week. However, I have tried to keep up with any comments made here, and respond. That said, a few things have been said which I think I’ll address.
First off, I suggest everyone check the “New Readers” page. I’ve just added a paragraph, but that contains the “basics” of what I’m about and what I’ll tolerate. One of the things which has been in place since last year has been a “7 day comment period.” That means that I set WordPress to automatically turn off comments after 7 days have passed on any of the posts here. I did that because most of the comments made on any post are within the first 72 hours, and after that, there’s either a new post or things have gotten off track.
Second, if you look at the title of this blog, it clearly states that this is my blog. It is not a corporate blog, I do not write here at the invitation of anyone else, I do not answer to anyone (besides the WordPress.com terms of service), and I sure as heck don’t get paid for this. That means that I control everything about this blog, including whether or not I allow or disallow comments or “want to have the last word.” I can even edit people’s comments, so my letting various things stand is because I chose to.
Right now, I’m pretty cranky, so if some people notice that their comments aren’t appearing anymore, there’s a reason for it. I may change my mind in the future, but for now?
