Welcome to the inner-net, this is not real, it's a cyber world.
This world, like the real one, was at one time created from nothing, now we have a vast fascinating world to enjoy. This cyber-word is ruled by gods. Here we call them moderators, they are all powerful, and knowing. We humbly bow-down before their immense power of life and death. The "Dark Arts"of moderation are taught at a Condor rehabilitation center, high in the Andes Mountains of South America. Less is known about the school of Moderation, than is known about the Bildergerg group of Zionists and their connection with Free Masonry, Goddess worship, car loans, and the price of tea in China.
Just as the Greeks received messages from the oracle at Delphi, we here at newsvine are at the mercy of the benevolent gods of newsvine. We hear from them, from time to time,sometimes when least expected, or others times we call to them ourselves when in a time of great need, or utter frustration. We may praise these "benevolent gods" or curse them, depending upon their rulings. We however must live with their rulings, just as the Greeks did, when receiving a message from the "on high".
Yesterday I found myself wondering. Just how does one go about supplicating these gods of newsvine moderation. How can one influence their decisions. I thought there would a message delivered due to a contentious thread, in a seed of mine. So I turned to my pagan history to see how to properly handle the touchy situation.
the only "logical answer" was to drink much alcohol, dance around a tree naked, enjoy sweaty sex with my partner, and then scream loudly and incohearintly at the heavens, until passing out in a drunken and exhausted stupor.
