Just as a PSA, I am *really* burnt out on answering private messages lately, across all services. Like, I cringe when I contemplate my inbox. So expect delays, is what I'm saying. That, or maybe subsidize a typing monkey (those are a thing, yes? I'm not really clear on how monkeys work).
If it's super-urgent, e-mail me using PGP and correctly marking message precedence (SO HELP ME IF I GET ONE MORE 'FLASH') in the subject, and figure out how to do these things /on your own/*. The quality of my replies will benefit.
Thanks for your patience. ♥

“You've met me at a very strange time in my life”
— Edward Norton, “Fight Club”
— Rolling Stone, damning me with faint praise
I've been using that line in introductions since before Fight Club was a thing.
I really and genuinely detest retelling my life story. I have done so, many times, and so have many others, with varying degrees of accuracy. I would rather live it and let others describe it. If you don't understand why this might be (and why I often answer questions /w URL's & quotes,) this writing by a dear friend of mine encapsulates it very well:
tl;dr: know me by my works.
No single source on me or anything is fully is objective or accurate, including myself. I can provide you with raw facts. How you interpret - or misinterpret them - is up to you. I'm just the messenger.
Or maybe we could just interact, without any particular burden of preconception. Each preconception withers the sense of wonder.
