Man! I agree with Aunt Soozie that the metablogging gets tiresome, so I’m sorry to have started it. I’m also very sorry that some peoples’ feelings seem to have gotten hurt by my last post and its ensuing comments. But I’m not sorry about my original suggestion–which was just that, a polite suggestion–not a rule–to keep comments to a reasonable length. I think we all have a sense of what reasonable length is. I have no plan to impose any word limits. Or to stop posting myself.
I’m very touched by how passionate readers are about this forum. I’m aware that there’s a delicate fusion going on–that part of why you come here is to see my work, but the other part is that you like who else you find here. And I sure don’t want to screw that up.
Just for fun, I’m making this post comment-proof.
