Cussin' 'n Fussin'
Hey, I just wanted to drop a quick line here about this. Ella's post on Candice-Marie reminded me that I wanted to address blog manners at some point. Ella kindly "bleeped out" the frequent profanity which pops up in that interview, and I am glad she did. I know that the word "bullshit" will naturally make its appearance here, and I am guilty of using that word here on more than one occasion, so I understand if that particular word gets used from time to time. I have never felt the need to moderate the comments or stop people from posting anonymously, because so far everyone has been incredibly civilized. I wish to keep it that way for two reasons, one of which I consider to be critically important in what I want to achieve here. The first reason is that I think that too much profanity cheapens the dialog and makes the point a person is saying much less credible. However, the main reason I do not want too much of that is because I always want people to feel like they can show this blog to their grandmother or mother. Despite all the youthful "wellness" warriors out there right now, cancer is primarily a disease of older people, and those people can get sucked into quackery too. So for that reason, I think it would be great if we could keep this blog as it is now in terms of language. This is mainly a message for any new people who come here, because everyone who is here right now has been really great in keeping it clean. Thanks everyone!
