Fighting With Google...

Blogging has been slow in recent weeks because Google has started -- retroactively, years after the fact  -- labeling my posts as being "In Violation of Community Standards" and putting them behind warnings.

Two things:

1. I know the Community you're speaking of, and they have no standards.

2. There is a pattern in what is being put behind a warning and what is not, and one suspects the usual assortment of feminists and transsexuals.

I am now officially DONE with fucking Blogger.

But I am not going away, Gentle Reader. 

Check in every so often for news on this front. Podcasting and subscription blog services are so much better, and I'm headed in that direction.

A Song of Ire and Vice...

 "I have learned a very important lesson about life below the Mason-Dixon, and relate it here for the benefit of the other Yankees who intend to move here: if you ever need anything simple, yet important, to be done, remember that these people have two main modes of operation -- Ass Backwards and Slower Than Joe Biden. No wonder they lost the War..." -- The Overlord

Where's My Shovel?

 "I thought Cultural Appropriation was supposed to be a bad thing; a quite obvious and insulting expression of overt racism...I guess that only applies to wearing outrageously-oversized hoop earrings and shooting people in fast food restaurants over cold fries and no free refills." -- The Overlord

Manage This! and More Pissed-Off Yankee...

 "Modern 'Management' is the art or skill of conniving to extract a very large salary while either avoiding work, or by doing work that no one in his right mind would want nor needs done..." -- The Overlord.

Dixie Daze...

 "Let me embrace thee, sour adversity, for wise men say it is the wisest course..." -- William Shakespeare

Galactic Housekeeping (# 21 -- Gratitude and Greener Pastures...)

Author's Note and Gratitude: About the middle of the month, the Overlord may be incommunicado, as he is about to take a new position with IBM in the somewhat more-civilized state of North Carolina (and I say that tongue-in-cheek, for having lived there once before, two-steps-beyond-Petticoat-Junction -- only with Wal-Mart -- is hardly 'civilized').

Great Moments in Dumbfuck (Your Children Are Retarded)

 "Magnifying small offenses, mind-reading by identifying subconscious thoughts even the offender is unaware of, and labeling others as aggressors are all integral to the microaggression program, but possibly harmful to mental health..."

"Microaggression complaints arise from a culture of victimhood in which individuals and groups display a high sensitivity to slight, have a tendency to handle conflicts through complaints to authorities and other third parties, and seek to cultivate an image of being victims who deserve assistance...".
