If You Don't Ask, You May Never Know.

I haven't had any thoughts really worth sharing for a while, but I'm feeling restless and impatient waiting for my poll to fill up. I do have some thoughts about how that's turning out so far, but maybe setting the time limit to two months was a bit excessive. I may edit that down later (if possible).

In the meantime, here is my current whim: From the time beginning now until I get some inspiration for another post, I'm throwing the door open to questions from my readers, whomever that might be. If you have been puzzled or curious about some facet of my stance on things, if you ever wondered "why does he think like that? Argh!" now is the time to ask.

Writing this, I don't particularly expect much reaction, but in the off chance this sets off the Internet Dumbass Flood of 2008, here's some ground rules:

Try to be clear, but succinct. If you have to preface your question with six paragraphs of setup, you're probably doing it wrong. Likewise, if your question depends on me reading your 70 links to important documents I'll probably pass.

Smartassery will be treated in the same manner in which it was offered, at my discretion. That is, if your question is just an excuse to needle or insult me ("hey, jerkface, why are you such an idiot?"), then you forfeit any expectation of a serious answer.

No, I'm not going to reveal any personal details about myself, except in the most general fashion. Not that I consider my secret identity to be that much in demand, but just in case it comes up, I'm covering that base.

Aside from such exceptions, I pledge to answer any questions as honestly and straightforward as possible.

Any takers?
