I sometimes write words on the internet. Occasionally, people really like them.

This "Net Neutrality" Thing Is Actually Important

BBCode advice



Remember [left_insert] and [right_insert]? They were cool. Well, you can just about simulate them with [quote] inside [figure], like that.

Need to write literal BBCode in a post? Simply surround it with [code] tags (with the caveat that there’s no way to put a literal ending code tag inside a code tag). For example, if you need people to see [color=red]text goes here[/color], write [code][color=red]text goes here[/color][/ code] minus the space in the [/ code].

We're going to be censored whether we get net neutrality or not. Our government can't be trusted but neither can all these big tech companies which follow the globalist third-worldist agenda who want to turn the West into a multicultural shopping mall. Regardless, the follow is appreciated sir.

Thanks for yet another fave! Glad you enjoyed "Never Again"! :pinkiehappy:

Glad to see that you enjoyed You Can't Eat Gold! Feedback is always appreciated!

Thanks for the favorite! I'm glad you're enjoying The Right Man in the Wrong Place :twilightsmile:

Thanks for the watch.

2323819 If it's anything like what's being advertised, I will!


As a very novice writer, I'm glad to hear that. When I eventually get around to writing the sequel, I hope you will enjoy it as well.

2323764 On occasion, I read a story and think "where has this been all my life". Into the Black met that high bar.

Thanks for the favorite on Into the Black and the follow.

2322730 The whole "seventh element" cliche aside, it was awesome. "Tonight, we party", indeed.

Thanks for the fave on Elementary Dragon! :moustache:

2312840 My view of what's worth reading has always been a bit different. Don't take my opinion as indicative of anybody else's, or of any objective measure (except perhaps spelling/grammar).

The Stars Did Aid In Our Escape is a piece of shit. Read something better.

Thanks for the favourite on When the Snow Melts :twilightsmile:

Hey, another fave! Glad you enjoyed "Always There"! :twilightsmile:

Thanks for the watch, friend-o

Thanks for another fave! Glad you're liking "Pride of the Apples"! :scootangel:

Thank you for the follow! :twilightsmile:

Holy cow, I literally just read "The Library of Babel for class; it was today's discussion topic, even. I am definitely reading the ponified version you linked to!

1957045 So what happened was I got around to some tabs of comments I hadn't properly engaged with yet (I have many of those), and one of them was Red Shoe Diaries (yes, some of those tabs have been in the queue for months), and I decided to check out that author's page since they seemed all right. Then I found you'd written Ciphers, and that was cool, but then at the bottom of your collection was The Furthest From the Tree, which I remember finding in a site blog post or something, and fondly(?) remembered reading, and that sealed the decision :eeyup:

P.S. From my moderately informed non-pilot's viewpoint: Airbus planes make the easy effortless and the hard harder; Boeing planes make the easy easy, and the hard merely challenging.
