A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Speaking of Little Coastal Towns

I was last in Wollongong in '00, and it's a terrific place. Good place to start a new life--certainly my parents thought so. So I examined this offer very seriously.

I sometimes say to comment trolls and similar: "Get a life--"You can find one on eBay."

Who knew?

Sorry Alani.

First off, I popped over to your site to see what it looked like and whether I'd like to be linked to you.

Multiple exclamation marks are the conclusive sign of a sick mind!!!

While we all make typos, if you're going to allow your English to be so error-riddled in public, you can't expect to earn anyone's trust. Run your stuff through spellcheck if you're honestly just making mistakes.

Speaking of trust, this is an advert-free blog for several reasons. Linking to an ad industry metrics site could undermine my appearance of integrity and my clearly unbiased critique.

Your site appears to be some sort of industry effort to ape both blogging and discussion groups, but isn't 100% clear who's behind it.

If you're an industry blog, you should say so loudly and clearly. The adstix site seems to have next to no content and no members. And if it did have members, it appears they're the sort of people who discuss commercials (especially the Mac/PC commercials) to the exclusion of all else. While I like to crap on pop-culture commercials as much as anyone, I have many other interests.

When I googled adstix, I saw a few comments and a hell of a lot of meta-data. Just the sort of thing I'd throw into my effort if I were trying to jumpstart a new idea.

In short, I appreciate the offer, but I'm not accepting until I at least have a better idea of what you're about, thanks.

Oh ... by the way ... the ellipsis indicates incomplete thought. To use it continually suggests someone who learned to write in an ad copywriting environment, and not a very sophisticated one.

Good to see that you only present the appearance of integrity. I might be disappointed if you were to show the real thing.
Cheers,
