    . . and I reckon that, for the first 4 years, pretty much all of my posts were ignorant codswallop with way more opinions than I had any right to have.

    The good news is that, in the last 4 years, I've reduced my witless garbage quotient to only about 80% of what I type here.

    The bad news is that my mind is going to start addling soon enough, and we'll be back to opinionated gibberish again.

    Sorry.

    We-ell, I'm sorry for now. Once the cantankerousness sets in, you can all kiss my ass.

    So accept my apology while it's live.

    Take care.

    Wait - what's the other 20%?

    And how can we tell?

    Apology accepted, BTW - very gracious of you!

    If we can't post our ignorant codswallop here, where then?

    Can't keep that stuff completely bottled up.

    My daughter and her "followers" like to post their "ignorant codswallop" on Twitter.
    She claims Mike Love of the Beach Boys is one of her followers.....I'm suspicious.

    When I first started commenting on the internet I had no idea how permanent my comments would be. There are posts of me arguing pointless minutia that I am embarrassed now to see I even thought to care about but I sure got into it with random strangers back then (1995). I am 55 years old and I would probably argue with my younger self too:) I don’t think my opinion matters enough to argue on a semi permanent medium anymore. Now I write a response and usually delete it before posting if it seems to be an argument.

    If it only took you 4 years to reduce your ICR* to 80%, that means in 24 years, a few of the hundreds who have set me on ignore might want to reconsider- but would that be worth the effort?
    I figure that I provide some value in presenting the half-baked side of the story, the tragic dithering horse apples to run away from.
    Glad to be of service.
    *ICR = total ignorant codswallop content divided by total postings = Ignorant Codswallop Ratio

    Bring back the opinionated gibberish.
    With a name like Hemingway you can't go wrong.
    It's all good!

    I think you have to get to 10K posts to realize a CSR. Before that its just Swallop without any ratio. Nice that you are thinking about it. At 20K it is the Burden of Non-excellence; which I am looking forward to.

    Swallop is tolerable.

    Oh! The humanity.....
