  1. Dave – You did ask, and you have received. I’m afraid the website URL has vulgar and offensive language in it, so I recognize that this comment may not make it to a published state. So be it:

    • Scorpio, I respect your opinion and I appreciate your review. In fact, the lay/lie has been one of my continuing grammatical struggles since high school. I used to have many, but with training and practice, I have overcome most of them. My wife actually pointed that last one out to me but I have not gotten around to fixing it.
      My blog is a meandering travel through my psyche, so it follows that some of my posts will meander themselves. Also, since this is a personal blog and not a professional, commercial enterprise from which I draw revenue (oh, that would just be swell though, wouldn’t it?) I do not put as much effort in my posts as I otherwise would. I do have a full-time job and other responsibilities to keep me busy and keep me from writing as much as I would like.
      I chose to take your comparison to Andy Rooney as a compliment, so thank you for that.
      I will say that the language used in your site URL is terribly inappropriate for a public forum, therefore I have removed the direct link in your comment, but readers can still link back to your review through clicking your name.
      While I have no problem with the ranking you gave me (it is your opinion, after all) I also think the language used in your ranking scale is similarly offensive. I would re-think your use of such if your intention is to be taken as a serious reference for blog reviews.

        For what it’s worth, Ask and You Shall Receive isn’t my site. I am just a contributing reviewer. And I think you knew the URL and rating scale when you submitted there.

        If you didn’t, well, that’s just poor planning on your part.

        I don’t have an issue with your issue with the language, but you can clearly see it doesn’t bother me. Out of respect to you, I will, of course, refrain from using such language here in your domain.

        And I look forward to ongoing discussions.

        For what it’s worth, I don’t debate. Debates tend to be a waste of time, but I am happy to discuss anything.
