Dear people who encounter my corner of the Plusverse,

If a stranger walked into your house uninvited, shouted obscenities, threw things about, and left (or worse, got into an argument with other strangers who also showed up), you would probably not take kindly to it.

It's likewise unsettling to have someone you've never interacted with post a comment on G+ with lots of UPPERCASE and profanities, without so much as an acknowledgment that there is a person who posted that thing causing so much ire.

If you come onto one of my posts, guns blazing, expect to be blocked. Because you're being rude. And my portion of the Plusverse is not a democracy. I block people who are unable or unwilling to engage in civil discourse. This means I will not tolerate people attacking one another, making prejudiced comments, etc.

TL;DR -- don't be a dick.

Yeah, swearing, all caps - or just having an opinion you don't like. Be honest.

On the no visible tattoos thing: Unless you live in Seattle, where visible tattoos are almost a requirement for dealing with the public.

I have fabric and thread. I just need to make a decision on size and cut.

Executive Editor Dean Baquet says "it would almost be illiterate" to call Donald Trump's longstanding claim that President Obama was born outside the U.S. anything but a lie.

544 hours to spin the wool on a low whorl spindles, 160 hours to weave the wool fabric on a warp-weighted loom. For one adult tunic. Which makes it even more remarkable that the tunic was left behind.
An interesting project on the reconstruction of the Lendbreen tunic was undertaken in 2015, directed by Marianne Vedeler at the Museum of Cultural History.

I make a lot of public posts. I reserve the right to block people who engage in abusive language, or who tick me off. This is not a matter of censorship, I am not a government entity preventing you from speaking in a public space. This is a matter of active curation. If you don't like it, you can keep your comments to other spaces in the Plusverse and across the internet. It's a big place, I promise.
