[Please don't read this if you've never been published except in your school newspaper]
Look here dunderhead, if you don't want people to read the thread or post then just don't post it. If you do place it here, under current settings we are all allowed to read it and comment on it to our liver, kidneys and other internal organs content. Word has it that a future version of this site will give superpowers wherein and whereby a registeralated member (be they Mennonite, Mormon, Methodist, Moravian or something other) will be able to use super-blocker and keep those on an ignore list from even viewing their posts. That however is in the future when George Lucas and Geronimo have finished appearing at the Burning Man Festival.
So, as I was saying...I can read your posts and there's not a danged thing you can do to stop it as of now.
For the record, I was not published in my school newspaper; in large part because I didn't write for them.
(I use "erstwhile" rather than "former" as less pejorative)
Why not use quondam
...if so, fellow writer, isn't it your impression that for some reason very few of us inhabit the Internet/Forum community
Specifically our cavalier if not obstreperous style for reasons provocative, is attacked by the typical forum participant as if we're deadly serious. On almost every occasion we'ere attacked mercilessly by the participant seemingly angry at all times about almost everything
No, the participants are not angry at all times about almost everything. Some may be annoyed, nay, disgusted, yea, I say heartily nauseated and aggrieved, by your lunaticish rantings and the inane repostings as 'new threads' on the same blasted topics.
Further, even when the balsamic vinegar-like responses stop stinging your sensitivities
, you have little to no comprehension of what has been said to you.
For instance if we gripe about digital editing routine, as in http://able2know.org/topic/202883-1
……we get meaningless comments such as, "SO boring," "Dementia," "Dale being Dale," "Shampoo rinse [?]," "Deranged lunatic," "Ad Nauseam," etc etc etc endlessly. Really helpful
Actually dale old man, those were not comments, they were tags. Kindly learn the difference darling or your scroll bar will be used to beat against your withered shins.
Fellow writers, am I alone
Do you really care?
Lastly, all who make responses here on this board are in a sense writers. Not authors, at least not in the sense of published for pay authors; yet, we are all writers. Well, that is, if the items we post here are our own original thoughts and not just pilfered from elsewhere. So you see dale, I am a writer, as are many of the members here. ( I won't say all, since some may be just transferring previously written statements from the New England Journal of Microbes or Mausoleums Monthly or any of a whole myriad of other publications or websites)
Be sure to take your meds dale and eat properly...it might help.
