Post-dated post, since all the cool kids are doing it

This is my journal. It has an info page. You're welcome to friend me, but please drop me a line (here or wherever). Otherwise I will look at the friends list, see a nick I don't recognise, and assume you're a close friend whose nick I have completely failed to recognise, and die of shame on the spot. Or something.

All comments on this post (only) are screened by default and will remain invisible to other users unless you specifically request otherwise. If you need to get in touch with me for one reason or another, you're welcome to do so here.

Ah, that's because I kept stuff on this one screened. I don't really need to screen my *own* comments, I guess :-)

I'd very happily agitate for Sydney gigs, but I have no idea who to agitate...

Moments of weirdness are good :-)

And I do try to avoid including anything likely to identify the other person in anything I'm going to unscreen. (Although responding automatically unscreens *their* post, so I have to remember to rescreen immediately after.)

Yep, sure :-)

I found it in an icon post in [livejournal.com profile] _octopus_ (some posts NSFW) a couple of weeks back. So far, two people have mistaken the blue rings for olives on cheese...

I was rather chuffed to see this variant coloration. They're such pretty little creatures :-)

Sure! Here it is, and here's a different set of octopus icons :-)

Cool :-) Have added you back. I think I lived in NYC for a few months when I was less than a year old, but I haven't been back since. I get closer every time I visit the USA, though, so it'll probably happen one of these days.

Thanks! I shall use that for [livejournal.com profile] calair :-)

Here is fine for URLs. You're not logged in, but from your IP I have a pretty good guess :-)

Credit as 'LJ Lederhosen' (although that sounds like some sort of fetishist boutique) or 'Art Black' would be fine :-)

However, if it's for publication, I'd strongly recommend running your final article by a professional health-educator or similar before it goes to print. I'm pretty sure the info I gave you is reliable and current, but I'm not a professional in this field and there may be something I've missed - better safe than sorry.

I understand ASHA is a reputable info source (see also their 'Media Contacts' page) and they can probably put you in touch with somebody suitable to do this.

It certainly does! Good to see you're still around :-)

If you wish to directly answer another users post why not just simply comment in said post, rather than filling up the community with new posts?

On 'filling up the community': in the last twelve months [livejournal.com profile] sceptics has had just twelve posts - and all but two of them were from you. (And of the remaining two, one of them is friends-locked, so a non-member looking at the community isn't going to see that one.)

Excepting the most recent one, I like your posts; they're usually thoughtful and interesting to read, or I'd have left the community ages ago. But I'm sure you've noticed that you're pretty much the only person posting there, and that sort of thing tends to become a vicious circle. If people checking out the community see that only one person is posting there - and not very often as that - they're not likely to bother adding it.

You're the mod, and it's your call to make, but I think [livejournal.com profile] sceptics is in rather less danger of "filling up" than it is of stagnating.

The other reasons I made it a post rather than a comment were that it's fairly long (comment format is not great for long posts - I like to be able to edit so I can fix any mistakes that slip past the first time around) and that it's tangential to the original thrust of your post. That sort of statistical mistake can be made in a lot of other contexts, and IMHO stats-abuse is an important area for sceptical scientists to keep track of.

Anyway, it's your call, but if you decide not to approve the post could you please send me back a copy of it? (C&Ping here would be fine.) I didn't think to make a local copy at the time, and there are a few bits in there I might recycle for other stuff.

Cool! Though I don't yet know whether I'll be in Sydney then... hoping to find out shortly.
