Germane Comments

A few of you contacted me regarding the germane and G-rated comments I’ve made in previous posts.  At the risk of repeating myself, I included those terms as a way to corral some of the more creative readers I have.

Over the years, I’ve received comments that run the gamut from something you could ask at 12 noon in front of your mother to remarks that would make the stereotypical sailor blush.  I’m not trying to limit your comments, but I would like them to be germane to the topic at hand.

Perhaps the most extreme example was the time I asked for your thoughts on continuing to provide my books in PDF format.  In response, I received a number of very helpful and well thought-out comments.  I also received a host of photos that were well past being suggestive.  Some also included remarks that made we wonder if they were made just for their perceived shock value.

This isn’t my first rodeo, so to speak, and I’ve heard things that might permanently warp the psyche of a young sailor.  Having said that, please keep your comments civil and leave out the vulgarity, profanity, and obscenity.

To help facilitate that, I’ve had a long-standing policy of approving comments that people wish to put on this website.  Again, I’m not trying to stifle conversation, but it seems that over the last few years, the ability to hold a lucid, coherent, and informed discussion eludes more and more Americans.

If you want to see your comments on my website, please keep the above in mind.

If you’d like to share your thoughts with me, please contact me.  If you’re going to send me a profanity-laced, expletive-driven rant, don’t waste your time, or mine.

As always, thanks for your continued support!
