The President has reminded me -- by using the term "snarky" to describe legitimate questions coming from the press during his daily stroke-fest -- that on occasion I need to remind readers of our comment policy.
It's over there on the right------->
(you may need to scroll down)
Here is what it says:
1. Anonymous comments will not be published.
2. Comments unrelated to the target post will not be published.
3. Snark and ad hominem comments will not be published.
In other words, you need to identify yourself by a username or it comes through as being from "Anonymous," and in such cases I will not publish the comment. Even if you identify yourself in the body of the comment you still may get deleted because I batch delete comments from "Anonymous" and don't always catch those.
Comments about cheap Viagra and how to make your own Fleshlight will likewise get deleted.
Rude comments and personal attacks on me or others will likewise get deleted.
My spam filters are not foolproof and it may be that you send a comment and I never see it because I am not about to police the hundreds of automatically filtered spam comments.
Sorry if you sent a legit comment and didn't see it posted. That's just the way it goes. Chalk it up to another of life's little losses.
Remember what Ellis said about loss in No Country For Old Men:
Well, all time you spend trying to get back what's been took from you, more is going out the door. After a while you just have to try to get a tourniquet on it.
