Disclaimer: All Ye Who Enter Here …
Eeeeeeee, I am so excited, I’ve hit the big time, I’m in the catbird seat, I have arrived!! No power in the verse can stop me now! Woohoo! I know, I’m supposed to be digging in my closet of computer curiosities but I had to post about this. What has caused this jubilation?
This comment on my YouTube Channel:
“WTF DID I WASTE 15 SECONDS OF MY LIFE ON?”
I feel like I’m really a citizen of the interwebs now. This blog is just about a year old and not one rude comment, not once, a lot of spam but everyone that comments here is exceedingly polite and kind. I know I don’t say anything controversial, mostly because my WoW space is my “happy space” and I don’t want no steeking negativity here but I thought considering the denizens of WoW, I’d still get some.
I should have known YouTube would come through for me. YouTube is the other side of the tracks, a really scary place inhabited by scary people. I don’t even know what some of the dirty words in comments there mean, and I worked in the headquarters of a macho labor union for years, so I know most of them.
Anyway, without thinking, I responded with a snarky comment:
Lol, perhaps you should make better use of your time then. And you wasted even more precious life commenting here, tsk, tsk.
I love the word snarky, I also love underused antique words like strumpet, and scofflaw, but I rarely get to use them so I’m happy snarky works just right here. After thinking about it a little I decided I’d been too hasty, I’d wronged dragonlord540 and I should do something to avoid the chance that some other unsuspecting innocent may lose valuable seconds of life viewing my videos.
My few videos on YouTube pretty much mean nothing out of context of this blog, it’s debatable whether they mean much IN context but just for argument’s sake we’ll assume they do. There they are, sitting on YouTube where anyone might accidentally view them. I haven’t even found out if there’s a way to delete the mistakes, like when I uploaded the wrong one and the things on the desk are hovering mid-air. SOMEONE MIGHT VIEW THAT and waste valuable seconds of life so I thought I should put up some kind of disclaimer on each one in honor of poor dragonlord540 or else this might happen again, oh the tragedy, the horror, when this could have been so easily averted.
Would something like this work?
Disclaimer: All ye who enter here, warning! This YouTube Channel holds nothing of interest to you. Valuable seconds of life WILL BE WASTED if you view them. Proceed at your own risk. These videos are meant to only be viewed in conjunction with posts at Tome of the Ancient (another second stealer if there ever was one) and if you proceed you risk a life shortened by seconds!!!
What do you think? I could call it something like The Dragonlord Alert to honor the channel’s first victim. So dragonlord540, I salute you. You’ve done well today, countless seconds will be saved and you’re responsible. Attaboy!
