Meet my avatar!

This is Dixie, my new avatar drawn by a friend. ^_^ She's named Dixie because that's my online pseudonym, and her appearance is based on mine. You like?

    Updated Rules

    Here's my attempt to update my blog ;). Updated rules are below...

    1. Let's try to keep this at most PG-13 rated, ok? We're (almost ;)) all adults here, and life is sometimes brutal. But keep things clean when you can. The same goes for cussing. Anyone who has spent any time online has heard just about every word in the book, but that doesn't mean they have to hear it here. Express yourselves without profanity, it'll do you good. ;)

    2. No shilling or flaming! I welcome and encourage you to disagree with me, but if all you can do is say "you're stupid," or consistantly bring up unrelated debates, I shall be forced to delete you =P. Just don't be a jerk ;).

    3. No personal information shall be given out here. If you're fine with everyone knowing your name, where you live, your phone number; that's fine. Just don't post it here. And please don't give out my personal information if you happen to know any. Thanks!

    4. I don't really care if you "spam" for your site, but be courteous and tell me why I should come see your site. Don't just say "cool posts, go see my blog." And this should be a given; no product spamming.

    5. Don't dismiss someone else's arguments based on age, race, region/country, gender, or yes, political affiliation. If someone disagrees with you in a civil manner, be nice and tell them why you feel the way you do. I don't care if you call politicians names, but it's uncalled for to refer to me or your fellow commenters as "Nazis" or "Leftists" :)

    6. If you want to exchange links, let me know! I'll usually link to anyone within reason, regardless of political affiliation.

    7. There are a few kinds of sites that I won't link to. This includes, but is not limited to: sites with hate speech; sites that advocate violence; sites with overly obscene content; sites that are 99% profanity, etc. If you have any questions, let me know.

    8. This is probably a good time for a disclaimer: Just because I link to someone doesn't mean I agree with them! Nobody speaks for me but me. And just because you see a link to my blog on a site, that doesn't mean that I endorse what that site says.

    That's about all. If you have any questions, send me an email or a comment!
