No, no, that is a bovine with a below-average IQ (for bovines that is).

No... that's something you take to get rid of pimples.
No, no, no! You're thinking of oxycontin.

After over a week of not getting involved with piracy threads, I am simultaneously feeling better, and am able to view the matter with some improved clarity. (No, I will not discuss those views here, as that would violate my lent... silly!)

This has allowed me to work on other projects with fewer distractions, namely, trying to figure out how to intelligently counter all the unintelligible, juvenile, selfish and baseless arguments about... um...

(I'm going to shut up now.)

But if piracy goes away, you'll no longer have a scapegoat to blame for your failure to become rich as a writer! You'll be forced to look at (gulp) your writing skills!

But you can devote your time to polishing up your somewhat creepy "about the author" page. (Not singling you out-- Any time someone writes self-praising bios in the 3rd person is creepy and off-putting.)

Not at all... I can always blame the DRM-haters who bad-mouth me in public for my pro-document-security stance... and the internet in general for failing to give me my requisite 15 minutes of fame in order to sell to everyone in the world in one fell swoop!

(See? There's always something else to blame your failings on! )

Status report: Laid down some good comments on this and that other site today. I credit the avoidance of polluting my mind with piracy issues to the high quality, clarity and effectiveness of my comments. I believe it would behoove all of my fellow--

Oh... lunch! Time for munchies! bye!
