Taking up Freeman's* suggestion

I'm creating this blog to be able to comment to Althouse's Blog posts, which she has decided to turn off.

UPDATE: She is calling her decision Comments Vacation.

I'm not going to speculate as to why I believe she turned off the comments, because, one, it's not going to change anything and two, I probably contributed to the decision. So, if anything I should be apologizing for contributing to the ruination of a good thing.

Althouse longtime commenter Freeman Hunt suggested*....

"Please blog at your own blogs and link to me. I notice where I'm getting linked, and can link to your blogs to include you here."

Make it so. (captain Picard)  -

ESPN went to a different commenter format themselves but I chose not to follow them because the only choice available to comment will be via Facebook, and I'm not a Facebook enthusiast. Facebook is not for me.

So, hopefully I'll continue to comment, even if at least for a while, it will just be for myself.

Correction* - It was Althouse that suggested commenters blog at their own blog.

Yay! You stud.

There's a bunch of places where I drop my load, I meant to say my pearls of wisdom, here and there, and then it goes, "Facebook!" the same thing as, "psych!" ' Yikes. Leave. Cause Homey don't play dat.

Lem said...

Ha!

Trooper snuck in first.

The come here trooper moment belongs to him.

Thank you guys.

Lem said...

Now go and tell others and maybe we can make... de tripas corazon.

Trooper York said...

I am looking ahead to making many more comments here Lem.

Good luck buddy!

Lem said...

Yea, well we are on first the last time I looked and we been on first for a long time too.

Lem said...

MLB, which I'm a subscriber of, allows comments but they are moderated and restricted to the "stories" they write which is indistinguishable from the corporate line. and just as boring.

In other words, MLB comments suck.

So, I'll be posting - posting mind you, about baseball now and again. And my thoughts on Althouse and her blog posts. and any eventualities as they arise.

Trooper York said...

Still....just so you know...and never forget:

Boston sucks.

Michael Haz said...

Hey hey hey, congratulations on the birth of your blog!

Lem said...

Thanks MH, please come again.

Should someone be passing out cigars! Cheers!

Lem said...

In some unexpected ways I like this.

Its liberating in a way.

Let the trenchant warfare commence!

Lem said...

I consider you a friend Pollo.

This miracle of communication we keep twisting into knots.

Its a wonder we manage to build anything at all since we started misunderstanding each other.

Thanks for your support, it means a great deal.

I've invested a great deal of time and effort to connect if ever so slightly to a bunch of wonderful people and I cant just walk away one day because something is off or whatever.

That's not even rational.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Good on you for starting a blog. It IS amazing and fantastic that people who have never met but who only connect through the magic of the internet can feel as close as friends that we have IRL.


:-D

Nice to see your new blog. Hope you keep it going, I found it VERY hard to post on a regular basis.

windbag said...

Happy blogging, Lem.

Lem said...

Thank you guys/gals

Keep coming.

Peter Hoh said...

Hey Lem, thanks for hosting. Was unaware of the fatwa on comments at Althouse until I got your note.

Trooper, nice to see you. The Yankees suck.

Freeman Hunt said...

Technical point: I did not suggest that, Althouse did. I only wrote, "Suddenly it is clear why the comments are off. Enjoy the break!" She wrote the rest of that; she was not quoting me.

Everyone forgets that Alex looked pretty scared when he said that. The President was near dead, the VP wasn't around (he was on a flight back to Washington, I believe) and someone at a press event said they didn't know who was in charge. Haig thought that was a REALLY BAD THING to say back in the Cold War days, and stepped up. Looked to me like he also almost shit himself. The Presidency used to be a BIG DEAL.

Icepick said...

You suck.

Icepick said...

Did that help?

Icepick said...

I've done the same thing as Lem. As only non-knuckleheads have responded above (except for Trooper), feel free to check that out too. But Lem is off to a quick and good start.

The Open Cover

Lem said...

Oh... sorry about that. Its one of the things I need to improve on. I need to be a little more careful. Thanks Freeman.

Lem said...

Hi Peter.

Don't be a stranger here Peter Hoh. You are so right, the Yankees suck big time.

Lem said...

Thanks Michael H. Keep coming.

Lem said...

And thanks for taking the time to correct my misimpression.

chickelit said...

Lem, there is a feature under comments where you can delete your first comment completely (and this one too) so that it looks like Trooper was here first by date stamp.

chickelit said...

Lem, I must be both more and less than you think. I don't recall the animus.
