It is not only me who posts unannounced in the hope of demonstrating the efficacy I hold myself to but can't bring myself to test on a real and threatening medium.

This internet shears the communication from each of us and puts those ideas out on their own; more or less free from predjudice or the risk of reflecting unflatteringly back on any of us.

I don't hold out any possibility of my meek few lines attracting attention of anyone but me. As for influence?

It's the power of invisibility, only none of us are seen. I think it kind of takes a bit away from it all.

It's all about me.
