Harrisburg Happening

Friday, March 03, 2006

Went to Mantis, saw the toilets

saw the much better art in the front. Saw none of you. But then, I have no idea what any of you look like. In espionage, one sets the rules for a clandestine meeting. In John LeCarre's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy it was Moscow Rules. So I propose Harrisburg Rules. Everyone wears a touch of red and stands outside the entrance looking inconspicuous.

McSabre called me a "Mostly Irate Lesbian" because I disagreed with him.
Last I heard, he worked for the Legislators in the IT dept.
Maybe Pennlive thinks I'm offended at being called a lesbian. Isn't that wrong in a way--do you think they should have YANKED it?
I INTEND TO KEEP the new name even though I'm straight and married.
I guess I'll give good old Mac attribution now--extra work ...that irritates me a bit--but I need to give him his due.
:-D

I was late, and was really only there to see Daniel Clarke's art. He's a great guy. On principle, I stayed away from the toilets. I thought about walking up to people and saying, "HARRISBURG1???..." Perhaps I should have. Next time we all need to wear flowers in our lapels or something.

Hi jentheiratelesbian!

Welcome!

Sure, pennlive thinks it's ok to call you a lesbian. There's nothing wrong with the term "lesbian" but when used to insult you, that's A-OK with them.

It's also ok to call people "retarded," apparently. It's also ok to post people's names and email addresses though it's a direct violation of the terms of use...

But you can't, under any circumstances, ask them why, because that's somehow wrong.

I think the censor has a small peepee and is on a power trip. (Try posting THAT on pennlive).

Anyway, good luck with Sabre. He's a kooky one.

NICE! I didn't look at the register. That's hilarious.

And I didn't go. I was afriad that my presense might insight trouble for someone else in the event that a certain regular at these openings was present.

Long story.

Anyway - I think that we should all get together at some point. I like the idea of wearing something red and standing around looking inconspicuous. That's fun.

Gee, I guess this isn't going to work out and become a bigger site than Pennlive. Surprise.

I think anon might be Milton and he's just mad b/c he can't delete us.

But can we change so that people can't post an anonymous?

Yes - I think I can do that. I'll wait a bit before doing it, though. I don't want those Patriot Insiders who may be on our side not posting.

If you don't like the way PennLive.com treats you, why do you hang out there? They have just as much right to police their forums in a manner that they consider to be appropriate as you do to ask (or order) an unwelcome guest to leave your house.
