About the Blog

I'm writing here because I have something to say, and an irresistible urge to say it. From what I've read, this is the only legitimate excuse for having the temerity to put words to "paper".

I don't have ads, I don't take donations, no one pays me for writing. I see nothing wrong with doing so, it's just not me. I can afford to write because I have a job I'm very good at and an employer who gives me considerable flexibility. (It doesn't hurt that I'm a part owner of the company.)

I have a lot to say; I think I could manage two substantive posts a day for the foreseeable future. But while I have flexibility, I don't have unlimited license. In short, I need to get back to work.

So I'm going to go on a disciplined schedule for the blog. Barring the unforeseen, I'll make substantive posts every Wednesday and Sunday morning (California time). Between substantive posts, I'll try and publish a quickie or two every day, at least a summary of the interesting things I've read that morning.

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
