Well, Shel Israel responded to my comment in his blog here with:
I won't respond to this because you are anonymous. Tell me who you are and where you are coming from or I'll not post anything else from you."

What a maroon. The "ljl" is linked to my typekey/typepad profile, which lists my web page. This blog is linked from my web page. How hard can it be to figure out "who I am and where I'm coming from"? Do I need to draw a map? I don't have a seeing eye dog to loan out!

I can't really take seriously a doofus who can't even click a link in his own blog to see my profile (the typekey link), and check out my web page to see a whole lot about me. He wants to be spoon-fed, or something.

I use "ljl" as a user id on this blog. I don't usually post anything with my full name, because I don't like people getting hung up on the uniqueness of my name and ignore what I'm writing about. But it's not "anonymous".

Feh. Color me very unimpressed.

BTW, I've been blogging since 2002. Blogging is not a "new" technology. In fact, it's been around since at least 1997! That's nearly ten years - ancient in the computer and web field!

In other news, Amazon now has PodCasts, a newer technology that offers content that their users actually might be interested in.

I suspect that it is more to do with not being on the A-List, blogging is not as inclusive as it is made out to be. There are definitely two blogospheres and ne'er the twain shall meet.

I've stopped blogging, does this mean that when I no longer have a blog that I will be anonymous and no longer be able to post comments?
