vanity | December 20, 2002 | southernnorthcarolina

Posted on 12/20/2002 3:57:53 PM PST by southernnorthcarolina

Apologies for the vanity post. But I want to rant a bit.

In the past few months, ping lists have proliferated to the point of annoyance. And it is especially irksome to find oneself on a list without having requested inclusion.

There's a word for this: .

Ponder this question, Chester: Did I ask to be on your #%&@ing ping list? No? Well, then. Draw the logical conclusion. If I wish to be on your ping list, rest assured you'll be the first to know. But while you wait with bated breath for my entreaty to be a party to your wisdom, I'll thank you not to make the assumption that I consider your blog indispensable.

Personally, I'd like to see pinging stopped entirely, via the placing of a limit on the number of people a post may be directed to -- preferably one, but no more than five, in my opinion. But failing that, it should at least be the case that unsolicited spam has no place on Free Republic.

Oh ... I believe people need to hear it Judy . Edification has a value when it is given sincerely to people .

I'm so low tech right now I'm just greatful for the ability to have the associations here , although I do recognize how the points you make could be a hassle .

Lotta graphic intense & computer literate folks here for certain . Sorry for the delayed reply Judy ..

This week at WFTD, we will be playing add me/dump me. I am purging the list, and if you want to be on it, you'll need to show up to class and say so.
