I suppose I am something of a lurker of comments about the things I post. I do read everything that everybody says about what I write. Sometimes I join in the discussion. Most times, since the writing is something I do when I happen to have the time, I do not have the time to get into an animated discussion here about it.
I can understand being viewed as a pimp for my own blog, and I guess I’ll live with that, since, well, I’d like people to see it.
I find that it’s pretty self-regulating on FR whether or not I get any hits from the general community. If I write something interesting, it gets hits. If, like this one, it’s largely just an excerpt or a video I came across, I get hardly any, though oftentimes on humor videos, they’ll draw a lot of attention.
Hopefully I bring something substantive here from time to time. If I don’t, I am willing to read and absorb the abuse for not contributing up to what is considered to be the general level of acceptability.
