I remember I used to write quite a bit here; sometimes seriously, sometimes like the goof I really am. I enjoyed it. Then, one day several years ago, a professional threat was dangled. I had poked fun at those in my profession. Or so it seemed to a couple of guys who couldn't see or, more accurately, couldn't read English well enough to see, that I was poking fun at myself. Native English speakers... Threats (well-veiled) were made, academic invitations withdrawn, and I found myself with actual enemies. "Fuck," I thought. (Yeah, that's all I thought.) Now I think, "fuck you."
