Here's a link to a post that I dithered on putting on SOLO or RoR. Since I was intruding on a conversation in a thread initiated there, but in reference to events here in the SOLO archipelago, I thought it best to post a note. Lest I be thought of as being silly and not worthwhile . . . sample scrapbook below.

What is 'dialectical dishonesty? -- essay? Personal blog entry? Part-scholarly document?

WHAT IS 'DIALECTICAL DISHONESTY? -- ESSAY? PERSONAL BLOG ENTRY? PART-SCHOLARLY DOCUMENT?

IF ESSAY, WHAT IS AN ESSAY?

WHAT IS SCHOLARSHIP AND WHAT IS ITS RELATIONSHIP TO NORMAL INQUIRY?

IS IT TO NORMAL INQUIRY AS SCIENCE IS TO NORMAL INQUIRY?

'Under terms of the strictest confidence' is a lovely term . . . (I shall perhaps use it, with a link to the perhaps-pseudonymous Evelyn Z Pickering's piece, as a title at Blog 46)

. . . he said, humbly, since it took over two hours for the sly humour of Jody's note to sink into the large Scherk-ish head . . .

Thanks, J-Man -- I no longer keep a journal, but I would have a lot of redacting/de-nonsensifying to do to calm the several who think me 'poo-poo head.' Howzabout I just mentally burn all my bad thoughts?

Since this is your "personal blog entry", better also, just for safe measure, tidy up your journal entries as well if you keep one.

Cresswell: 'Save us the bother of reading your nonsense"

wsscherk's picture

Thanks for the headsup, Peter.

I'll look into the possibility of working with Giles -- especially if we meet sometime this year during his time in Canada.

With regard to 'saving you the bother,' I don't see that as my role in Blog 46. You have already been warned by Lindsay Perigo that my stuff is 'silly' and 'not worthwhile,' so what are you doing with yourself by reading it, pray tell?

Seriously, I don't mind if you give me a pass, but I do not understand such contentless critiques as 'nonsense.' This is not good faith, to my eyes, this is just an expression of denigration.

If that's all you got to say, great, thanks, I will no longer direct my thoughtbeams towards you, and, when adding new material, think to myself: "Peter Cresswell will not be reading this" -- and act accordingly with this hypothesis.

In any case, Blog 46 and your own blog here are rather minor quasars in the online universe . . . I don't know how much deeper into the shadows I could withdraw . . .

More nonsense

Perhaps you and Rick could start a site somewhere yourselves. Perhaps then you might each have at least one other person laughing at your 'jokes,' and save us the bother of reading your nonsense.

However you made that

However you made that "movie" poster, that is pretty funny.
