The Lady Speaks

Commenting Policy

Since my readership is really not that huge, all threads are more or less open threads. Feel free to discuss whatever’s on your mind. Also, feel free to disagree with me or any other commenter, but keep it polite. Disagreements and passionate discussions are fine, but wars are not, okay?

* * * *

“Be ye kind to one another” and “My blog – love it or leave it” pretty much sum up my philosophy. That said, here are the rules:

1. The following types of comments will be deleted, and the author(s) banned:

contain profane, racist, or pornographic material or links,
or that harass, intimidate, or threaten other commenters.

2. LINK! LINK! LINK! This is a free blog, so I’d like not to kill WordPress’ bandwidth. Do not post lengthy cut-and-paste jobs, as they will be edited and/or deleted at my discretion.

2a. Discussing 9/11 theories amongst yourselves is fine, but save the cut-and-paste jobs for your own blog or someone else’s where they’re welcome.

2b. Complaints about this policy, deletions, and/or edits will likewise be deleted and the author(s) put on moderation. Three strikes and you’re banned.

3. Promoting your own blog in the comments is okay, as long as you do not exceed one link per day. Not one link per post, but one link total per day. Duplicates will be deleted.

The URI box is provided in the comment area for a reason – use it.

Be warned – I can and will match IP addresses. Commenters who make a habit of harassing, intimidating, or threatening other commenters will be turned over to the proper legal authorities, if necessary.

These rules are subject to change at any time.

  1. I know you plan to use this, but just in case:
    Grandma Whites favorite prayer for peace:
    Roman Catholic (which she wasn’t, but we all learn from one another)
    Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
    where there is hatred, let me sow love;
    where there is injury, pardon;
    where there is doubt, faith;
    where there is despair, hope;
    where there is darkness, light;
    and where there is sadness, joy.

    O Divine Master,
    grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
    to be understood, as to understand;
    to be loved, as to love;
    for it is in giving that we receive,
    it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
    and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

  2. Thanks Mom! How did you know which one I’m posting on Christmas?! *laugh* You are psychic!!

    I’ve always loved that prayer. Gramma was my first teacher when it came to Christianity – use what you like and what feels real, and ignore the “bullpucky”.

    Of course, my favorite of her sayings is: “Sitting in church doesn’t make me a Christian anymore than sitting in a garage makes me an automobile.”

  3. I just saw the issue about the Katy Islamic mosque on the news and was searching websites when I found your blog. I’m from north of Houston and we’ve had a mosque in our town for a long time.
    I live in suburban sprawl- we have tons of churches and even a Jewish temple. Probably some of the most beautiful religious sites are: the mosque, the temple, and the Mormon cathedral. It’s pretty silly that the townspeople in Katy are embarrassing themselves.

    I think situations like these show who keeps their honor and humbleness and who doesn’t.

  4. Hi PA_Lady, Looks like we might have a mutual friend. I was checking out your Spartacus post when I noticed the Get In Their Face! Friend listing. Do you know him?

    Anyway, he & I have been friends for several months. Small world. I’m guessing maybe you met him at a certain well-known blog, but could be mistaken… Anyway, nice to meet you!

  5. Yep, I met Nate over at C&L. He’s got an excellent blog, and it’s good to see him posting again.

    You wouldn’t, by chance, happen to be a certain…ummm….”mystery man”?

  6. No, but actually I had dinner with “mystery man” last Friday night! Nate introduced us because we only live 20 miles away. He’s coming to my next Draft Gore Meetup in Lawrence, KS.

    He gave us some great background stories!

  7. Cool! I haven’t seen E around the internets in a while, but figured maybe he was wandering in different tubes. When you see him, tell him I said hi.

    Great site you have, by the way! I look forward to reading more posts.
