Dear reader, whether fan or foe,

I don't expect you to agree with me. You don't have to share my opinion. I cherish your freedom to think and speak as much as I do my own. But I assure you, no good comes of attempting to shame people for their ideas, or to shut them up because they disagree with you. Seriously, who actually thinks that's okay?

Please trust me...if you send me a nasty message, I will just laugh at you for being so small minded. You will not manage to make me feel badly.

So if you believe in freedom at all, you will just have to respect mine.

If, on the other hand, you wish to contact me to collaborate on a project or pass on an important link or event, please feel free to email me. I would be happy to hear from you. Just be clear about the purpose of your email in the subject line. If I don't know what it is, I will not open it.

So here's hoping that most of you are reasonable and liberty-minded.
For those who aren't...I am deeply sorry for you.
