Answering Reader Comments

It’s a busy life, that of a famously successful blog writer. Between all of the parties and conventions and occasionally writing, its difficult to keep track of all the readers who have chosen to leave comments or messages. I regret that I can never hope to answer all of them, but in lieu of that, I’ve taken some random selections. I hope that the answers I can give here will be satisfactory. I would hate to let any of my loyal fans down.

Just before we start, in what appears to be an odd coincidence, all of the following comments include weblinks to variety of different websites, all of which attempted to sell me something. While I’m always grateful to be informed about the latest good deals going around the internet, I can assure my fans that this step is not necessary. Your gratitude and kind words are reward enough. As such, those links have been removed from your posts.

(All of the following are real and are reproduced as they were posted).

Here we go. “Bet365” writes:

“hi I was fortunate to search your subject in google
your post is brilliant
I learn a lot in your Topics really thank your very much
btw the theme of you blog is really wonderful
where can find it”

Thanks Bet365. Did you know that your username is also the title of a popular online betting service? Keep on eye on that friend!

The theme of my blog is “Twenty Ten” and can be found in the “Manage Themes” section of any WordPress blog site. I take this to mean that you’re looking to start your own blog and I wish you all the success in the world. Please, link me when you begin! My busy schedule may prevent me from giving it a look, but it’s always good to know that you’re inspiring people! May I suggest starting one here, at WordPress, the only place to find the famous “Twenty Ten” theme?

Thank you for the compliment Friendzeddife. The vaguely threatening sounding last line of your comment aside, it’s always good to hear that your work is enjoyed by people. Rather then stalk my page like the deranged psychopath I’m sure you are, perhaps you could pour your energy into something productive, like starting your own blog site?

“What is error and omissions insurance? Does it cover malpractices and errors? Is it included by default to the commercial liability policy?”

That’s a little outside my area of expertise ICOCKCOPAMARA but I refuse to let the pleas of one of my fans go unanswered.

Errors and omissions insurance is business liability insurance for professionals such as insurance agents, real estate, agents and brokers, architects, third party administrators, quality control workers, NDE Persons, and other business professionals. An error or omission, a mistake, which causes financial harm to another, can occur on almost any transaction in any profession. This type of insurance helps to protect; a professional, an individual or a company, from bearing the full cost (up to amount of policy) of defense for lawsuits and related cost of lives or property lost relating to an error or omission in providing covered Professional Services. This insurance is extremely cost prohibitiive and unless required by contractual needs should be avoided. This is a separate coverage from a standard general liability or property insurance policy.

Might I suggest you consult an insurance firm for other queries related to this matter? Or the many fine information gathering sites on the internet? Be careful about spammers though! And thanks for writing.

“Snubtencuck” has a story to tell, one I think we can all relate to:

I know that “none of the good deeds go unpunished” but of course in the heat of been a “Good Samaritan” i gave my car to a friend to drive until her car getting fixed in my garage. It lasted about a week and a half and she wrecked the car. Damage to other vehicle = none, according to her. My car is hit in the front radiator leaking and the hood and one of the headlights is smashed. She got a verbal estimate from some guy to fix it for a grand,(she is willing to pay me) which I doubt is enough because I am positive she overheated the engine on multiple occasions after the accident because she have told me she kept driving it until smoke came out of the engine compartment few times then she called me. I suspect that engine is a toast – the car is 95 Escort wgn with 200k. But I really babied that car and it was running almost (considering the age and miles) flawlessly.
Her insurance company said they will only process the claim as a secondary insurer and my provider will have to be a primary because the insurance follows the car not the driver – their exact words. I don’t even want to call my insurance and ask because i suspect my rates will go way up and I have two teenagers in the house.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!”

Yes, lending things to friends is always a risky business, as Snubtencuck found out to her cost. I had similar problems with my friends, who were constantly leaning on me and “borrowing” things without returning them. Books, games, a blood transfusion that one time – it was all “take, take, take”. The perils of being a famously successful blog writer. I found the easiest solution was simply to not have any friends anymore. They’re dragging you down Snubtencuck.

As for your insurance problems, my suggestion is to write a really stinging and vicious blog post about them. You seem worried about making ends meet with two teenage children, so my suggestion is to follow the advice from a very well-regarded movie on the subject of business creation and settling interpersonal conflicts: Explain the stressful financial situation to them, then simply lock the two kids in a room, place a broken pool cue between them and say “Make it quick”. Your financial burdens will soon be halved!

“Gepeexparmads” makes a bold statement:

“Evict in florida and tampa bay eviction. Come oon guys!”

Strong words Gepeexparmads. I can’t say I support your position, largely because I’m not sure what you’re talking about. Perhaps you could start a blog and expand on your opinions? I’ve found my blog very useful for pontificating to the world on all sorts of matters. I’m sure you have many things to say about evictions in the south-east of the United States!

“EnrogeGogHerm” writes:

“Hey guys

Awesome posts

Thanks for posting!

I’ll be back soon”

The sentiment is appreciated, but like with my good friend Friendzeddife above, I am somewhat concerned with the threatening tone of the end of your message. Please, I know that fame inevitably leads to people becoming attached to you, but I am not worthy of such fanatical devotion.

Well, maybe a little.

“DELETE”

I believe you are a Cyberman. I can assure you that I am not your enemy, but as a denizen of this planet, I am protected by this delightful English chap regards all alien incursions. Please take the matter up with him.

“#Sylvitan” says:

“Hello ! I’m new on this forum, hope to talk to you soon 🙂
I love cars and tuning, and you ?”

The chances of us talking are very slim #Sylvitan but I encourage you to hold onto the faint hope of one day meeting your idol.

I can’t say that I’m very knowledgable on “cars and tuning”. I thought the only thing you could tune in a car was the radio! Haha, that’s just a little blog writer humor for you. Feel free to use that one.

A Mr “Jeff Muldrick” took the time to ask:

“This weblog is superior it has got the entire points i sought after to speak about, it has fulfilled my wisdom, i just appreciated this weblog and that i wish to subscribe so can you please inform while your blog gets up to date and what?s the procedure to subscribe in details.”

I am delighted that I was able to “fulfill your wisdom”. It warms my heart to know that my blog can educate as well as entertain.

“Greetings I am looking to forward to catching up on reading the great information that drew my attention.

I have found the internet’s best kept secret for chevy and chevrolet hubcaps or wheel covers though.”

Glad you enjoy NFB. I envy your discovery of the best hubcaps and wheel covers on the internet. Only yesterday I was wondering “why is it so hard to find a good online hubcap service?”

I don’t begrudge you your success though. Thanks for letting me know that my continued search is not in vain!

“Ремонт и отделка офисов, квартир или дач – это самая распространенная на сегодняшний день проблема большинства людей, решившихся, наконец, привести в порядок свое жилище. Мало того, что ремонт – это занятие трудоемкое и напряженное, еще и найти достойную компанию, занимающуюся отделкой квартир или офисов сегодня практически невозможно. Дело в том, что все меньше и меньше в нашей стране остается фирм, делающих свою работу качественно, эффективно и недорого.Однако наша компания является приятным исключением из этого неприятного правила. Мы вот уже долгое время занимается отделкой и ремонтом квартир и в г. Зеленоград и еще ни разу нам не приходило от наших клиентов ни неприятных отзывов, ни каких-либо жалоб. Богатый опыт наших специалистов, а также высокий профессионализм всех без исключения наших работников, поможет сделать хорошо, качественно и – главное – доступно как косметический, так и капитальный ремонт.”

Sorry remroom, I don’t speak…that. I can only guess that you are looking for an English language classes. May I advise that you use an internet search engine for such a query as you are unlikely to succeed in your quest to learn English by randomly posting on blog sites?

“Cooocks4u” writes:

“Exelent info

I am growing increasingly concerned about this sentiment amongst my readers. Perhaps its nothing, but I can’t help but see something sinister in that last line. I guess its my own fault, for my dazzlingly inspiring writing.

An anonymous visitor writes:

“Hello! Its my porno site!”

Whoh now. I love my fans, but not in that way. I thank you for your support and obvious…attraction to my website, but the attached link was unnecessary and contained images that were rather risque. Perhaps you should consider rethinking your present lifestyle?

“Viuagra bestellen” writes:

“my God, i believed you were going to chip in with some decisive insght at the finish there, not go away it
with ‘we depart it to you to decide’.”

I think Viuagra, you are confused. I have checked my archive of posts thoroughly and can find no instances of the words “we depart it to you to decide”. Perhaps you mixed up NFB with another blog site, one with a very poor grasp of the English language? Please, no need to thank me for correcting your error.

Lastly, from “buywowgold”:

“Exelent info

Does anyone know the best place to buy home security systems?

    Thought your “Decisive Batlles in History” and “LOTR by chapter” series are quite superb, you’ve truly outdone yourself by taking on the blog spammers. Hilarious!
