EMERGENCY ADMINISTRATIVE ANNOUNCEMENT

Folks (and Tim), I apologize for breaking in here, but I have to say something. Please, please, please, when you comment, don't do this. I mean it. I offer this webspace to Tim Blair to post entries as long as he wants, not everyone in the entire universe. If you have something so important to say that it takes up several screens, get your own website and put it there, and give us the url.

Butů butů Andrea, freedom of speech means _other_ people _have_ to pay for _my_ free speech. Isn't that what Air America's all about? *G*

You playing with fire Richard. ;-)

Dang it, Andrea, I was going to post "War and Peace" here to illustrate my opposition to something.

I mean, it's only your money, isn't it?

Andrea,

Jimmy: you know what will happen.

Yikes. Overkill. Bad.

Ha! Andrea's just desparate to write something in a blog people actually read, unlike her sad offering.

Your request is quite understandable, Andrea. I'm sure that any reasonable person will follow to your policy. It's only courteous, after all.

Ditto JeffS. Timely Andrea.

I posted an entire book once (not here, Andrea!), just to see what would happen. Picked it up from the Gutenberg Project, copied the whole thing (Gutenberg provides online texts in one document - ideal for reading at work, BTW) and dropped it right there into comments.

It took a while.

Uh, "Jimmy."? Your problem is? Did I ban your girlfriend or something?
