UPDATE: Heartfelt apologies to DirtCrashr, whom it seems I have misinterpreted completely. It's almost like I'm not very smart or something!

Anyway, DirtCrashr's all right. But if any of the rest of YOU get any bright ideas about asking for a refund . . . [evil glare].

Well, they had better be! Until the economy picks up a little more steam, our Research & Development budget will remain too meager to fund any new ones.

I dunno, perhaps DirtCrashr has a point. Why would anyone be interested in your involvement in an actual shooting, and the resultant effects vis-a-vis your perspective on internet pseudonymity? Try something more universal, interesting, and outward-looking for audience appeal--DirtCrashr's report on his/her latest shooting range results is a great example.

Actually I apreciate the virtue of modesty and the good reasons to remain anonymous on the Net. I was struck by your explanation of the serious hazzard that can occur from reality-exposure, and I just don't understand those who reveal too much of themselves - not in opinion or experience, but with Name-and-Address type stuff.
Sorry to get our wires crossed, I guess my word-choices and tone were poor enough to create a misunderstanding, my bad.
I am more annoyed not by opinion, explanation, or stories people offer, but by the bad poetry they project. And kitty-cat photos.

Oy--my apologies. Snarky asshole, thy name is me.

My current hobby not only has a very narrow appeal, but lends itself to boring pictures of holes and shiny metal objects as well -- I should not critizie the kitty-cat bloggers! ;-)
