A warning first: I'm openly atheist and that's one of the buttons I don't recommend pushing. Sexism, racism, homophobia, and transphobia will get you blocked from posting comments.
=== Contact Me ===
The best way to contact me: leave a comment. Yes, it goes to me for approval first - see below. Unless I've posted that I'm on vacation, I obsessively check for new comments - at least twice daily. You'll get an answer, stat.
If you need to contact me outside of regular comments, feel free to email me. My email in is on my profile, visible by clicking the big radioactive symbol on the upper right hand corner. Or click here.
=== Comment Policy ===
I allow you to dissent. I highly encourage intelligent conversation, and unbridled snarkiness. If you're off-topic but not spam, I may ignore you.
Say something stupid, and I will mock you.
Troll, and the results vary. If I like you, then you will get Summer Glau-ed and I will mock you. It doesn't matter who you are. I would do it to my mother. Hell, I did it to my sister once...
Spam, and your comment dies. Push a hot button too much, or say something offensive, and it dies. Question my right to free speech, your comment dies an especially firey death.
