Well, title says it all really.

[editor's note, by RobotSlave] Rather than simply delete this immediately, we've allowed it to stand as an example of how not to impress anyone at the Adequacy with your first diary entry. Do you really think this noise, this graffitti, this smearing of one's feces on the wall, will go unremarked and unpunished? It might go over well at the primate house, but we expect you to wear clothes here, put your napkin on your lap, and refrain from masturbating in public.

I suppose this is where I post stuff for people's reading pleasure, so they can see what goes on in my pathetic little life.

If I ever have anything interesting to say, you can bet I'll try to sell it to a magazine for payment instead of giving to you idiots for free.

[editor's note, by RobotSlave] Note the chain of supposition here. We have three assumptions: first that "borehawg" might have something interesting to say, second that he might have the initiative to actually type it up, and third that some publication might find it so compelling and well-written that they might be willing to pay cash for it. Are any of these likely? See Poll.

Im actually thinking of getting (or failing that, making) a web browser in which I can turn off italic text, therefore removing the stupid editors comments from my screen.

How are RobotSlave's editorial comments any more stupid than the non-content posted by the "diarist"?

with regards to your comment about text in italics: White Widow or Purple Haze? Street price?

Why not try the version of Konqueror that comes with Mandrake 8.2? That browser does a very good job of being completely unable to render italics, instead choosing to display both italic and bold text in the "normal" typeface. - love it or leave it.

Wow. After reading the editor's note, I see five options:

a) Tuck my tail between my legs and run away, never to post again;
b) Apologize, and mend my ways;
c) Mend my ways, and apologize;
d) Taunt you from a distance
e) Get on with my life

Actually, had I looked further into the diary setup, and it's method and manner of posting, I would have at least removed the profanity in the title. But I'm not interested in rebuttal or any other sort of argumentative discourse or apologies at the moment, not over something as inconsequential as this.

I choose (e). From the other two comments so far, I suspect everyone else will, too.

I think I'll shed my clothes now and visit the primate house.

It is customary, at this point, to say something along the lines of:

"Don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out."

that's what Adequacy posts are supposed to look like. Good job for your first experience.

Ok, who picked the flower???
