Friends and Fellow WU-vies:
I note that some comments are trending into personal vituperation. May I ask that all offenders tone down their remarks and respect our forum....?
Otherwise, the Righteous Hammer of Wrath will have to be employed.
Chuck and I have no idea yet of what happened to his missing post--but we're on the case!
The Nude Skydiving video is back, re-sourced from Vimeo!
Alex has established a method of allowing quick deletes of spam, and I cleaned up a couple of dozen this morning. Faithful WU-vies should see fewer annoying comments. Thanks for your patience!
We realize that spammers are clogging our wonderful comments section, the lifeblood of WU. Alex, the closest we have to a techie, is researching the matter.
Thanks for your patience and continued support!
The Mgt. of WU--Alex, Chuck and Paul-- would like to apologize to our readers for foisting an overly political and jejune and tendentious post on you, even by proxy. You'll note that it's been deleted--although the comments formerly attached to it remain behind, so as to archive the wise and tasteful responses of our loyal readers.
Please forgive us, and continue reading as before.
I'm home now from my trip to the West Coast for only twelve hours, but I made sure that my first task was to read the last week's worth of WU posts and comments. Unfortunately I don't have a second, in the face of various deadlines, to respond to every single great comment on the assorted FOLLIES OF THE MAD MEN posts. But rest assured that I enjoyed each one, and continue to be amazed at the sagacity and enthusiasm and wit of the WU family of readers and contributors.
As for Chuck and Alex, they did tremendous work taking up my slack, with dozens of really great posts. If I can single out one, it would be Alex's talking goats video, which confirms that the earlier image I posted of goat testicles was accurate.
And that's what we're all about: accuracy in weirdness.
Please have one more FOLLIES, following this post. Then, tomorrow, even more goodies!
