Comments on my initial post on the topic are below, in purple italics.  My response to the response follows each paragraph. IMHO, your very best and essential point is: if Louis CK asked permission, why isn't that just unfortunate/awkward instead of noncons...

In defense of Louie CK
The one big thing that has, rightly, been the defining distinguishing feature of unacceptable behavior has long been lack of consent. If that is going to be thrown out, then we are taking an enormous step backwards, defaulting back to what used to be religi...

Well, after 10 years of writing crap, I finally decided to go ahead and buy a real URL.


So, (while the old links should continue to work), I am no longer at "biodieselhauling.blogspot.com", which had nothing to do with the log content anyway and was just a legacy from the fact that my original blog was hosted on my buisness website's server.


The new home of the Flamboyant Introvert is: randomthoughts.fyi




A tad bit more on the change here: http://www.randomthoughts.fyi/2016/08/random-thoughts-dot-fyi.html
