Writing lesson, comment on Tom Friedman

 Don't piss people off unless you have to. Over at Substack. 


  1. I mentioned in an earlier post that it was not possible to enter comments on the SubStack posted articles. And, I have just now confirmed that that is so for reasons not revealed by SubStack. SubStack rejects the profile, try as one might to enter name, handle, and profile simplified to the point of nullity. As you are in the process of transfering over to SubStack from BlogSpot, I will not be joining you there although I have registered my email with you.

    I wish you all good luck and prosperity going forward.

    1. I contacted substack, and they invite queries for help at or I hope you can figure this out, and keep sending your always interesting commentary.

    2. The comments used to be interesting. Now the comment section has become a right-wing echo chamber. I won't bother any more. Cheers, John. See you at the glider field sometime.

    3. I had the same problem.


Comments are welcome. Keep it short, polite, and on topic.

Thanks to a few abusers I am now moderating comments. I welcome thoughtful disagreement. I will block comments with insulting or abusive language. I'm also blocking totally inane comments. Try to make some sense. I am much more likely to allow critical comments if you have the honesty and courage to use your real name.
