On comment boxes
I am not necessarily, among my friends, known for my tolerance of opinions that differ from my own. However, I recognize that this a blog, and conversation is important for blogs. That is why I have provided space for comments. I have also given out my private e-mail address, with the caveat that I would rather not be annoyed having given it out, rather than my public (i.e., school) address.
If you would like to respond to a post here, or would like to privately respond, please use the media I have provided. I will still engage in "distance conversations," because I have nothing from which I intend to run on this blog. However, my pleasure at doing so will tend toward 0 as the limit approaches infinity. Rapidly.
