Journal Journal: Time to post. 1

Why must I wait 20 seconds before I can submit my posts? It doesn't take very long to remind people that I'm not dead. From what I read here, the "editors" certainly don't waste any time proofreading (or checking links) before they submit stories, so why do they make us wait to post a comment?

Journal Journal: I'm not dead, just modded way the hell down.

I just wanted folks to know that I'm not dead (yet). For this I get modded down to "Terrible." That's not bad enough, but now I'm only allowed one post a day, even though the system says I'm allowed two. This moderation system sucks -- it can't even count!

In my next book I think I'll have the protagonist tormented by a deranged computer system that unfairly changes its rules at random. Nobody would believe that people would willingly endure such torture, so I'll have to set it in the DMV or something.
