Come fly away with me.


I've been trying to understand this for three years.

I'd say "crazy," but that's passé. I burned that city to the ground.

If "Seeing is believing" then we can go only so far as the horizon. This is not enough for any.

How to comment-whore.

Since I read that, my comment counts have been steadily increasing.

Being a whore makes it empty, thus the reason I haven't posted The Comment Meme at all recently.

Though, maybe I will anyway.

Not at all. It's mostly about creating a dialogue with folks. I mean, you could pretty easily write, "I want comments. Leave a comment." But that's not interesting. It's about nifty interaction, not lame low-quality comments.

You want people to be like, "yeah, I can relate to that. It happened to a friend of mine, etc etc etc.", not just "great post!".

I think this needs to be my tag line from now on.
"After you write "BUSH SUCKS HE FUCKING SUCKS MY ASS DONG THAT COCKSUCKER," nobody's going to leave a comment - because if they agree, they have nothing to say, and if they don't they'll be terrified of getting into a dumb flame war with you."

Whoa there cowboy. Dumb flame war? Flame wars are always awesome. Always.

Ok, now that is not how I define benig a comment whotre. Rather that is an effective way to promote discussion adn I think it's spot on. I can see all the things I do that blockade commenting.

Now to post a comment counter. :)
