I think you are lost, perhaps you took a wrong right turn (ah! how the hateful idiosyncrasies of the English language make even this sincere statement look like a bad joke!) some time ago and ended up somewhere not in the twenty-first century.
I asked for feedback two days ago. I have received only a handful of comments (many of which fell through an inherited genetic gap between the index and middle fingers of my hand). Thanks to Google Analytics, I know that forty-one to sixty-six of you have visited this blog since then--I am led to the impossible conclusion that some of you still believe in thinking before you write. How outdated! How positively--dare I say it?--dinosaurian! (Disclaimer: I actually did have to stop and check whether that was really a word before writing it, which probably makes me look like a hypocrite. But before you condemn me on that count, consider: if we never said anything hypocritical, the world would fall silent, and that's like letting the monkeys win. Speaking of silence, I need to get back out of this parenthetical whisper. It's too quiet in here.)
Can you imagine what our world would be like if everyone insisted on thinking before typing? The internet would be, at best, 5% of its current size. Travesty! Catastophe! Apocalypse!
