... your regularly scheduled blog reading for this important announcement:
The official e-mail address for this blog and its author may be found under the "View my complete profile" on the left side of this page.
When I e-mail someone, I will use one of four possible e-mail addresses: the gmail address mentioned above; one other gmail address with my real name; my county email address which contains my real name and the county I work for; or (very rarely) a SearchMalta address.
I do not have a yahoo e-mail address, nor do I have a hotmail address.
That being said, I'd like to discuss a facet of my personality which seems to have missed at least one critter out there:
Off line, I am an extremely private person. I do not, will not, nor have I ever casually announced to a complete stranger that I am the author of this blog -- no matter how cute she is.
My blog does not ever come up in casual conversation with anyone other than those I consider kith and kin. That means family and close friends. Period.
More to the point, I will not use the fact that I am the author of this blog in an effort to further unwanted romantic advances upon anyone -- ever.
If you are the subject of unwanted romantic or sexual attention by an officer -- contact the Internal Affairs division of his department and contact the head of his agency.
If the officer is using my blog, my words, and my on-line identity in his pursuit -- contact the Internal Affairs division of that department, contact the head of the agency, and then send me an e-mail and you can bet your last biscuit that at least one thing is going to get settled.
If you are reading this blog, and you are considering claiming it, or any part of it, as yours for any kind of gain -- material, immaterial, sexual, financial, psychological or otherwise -- you'd best pray to whatever gods you worship that I never find out that you have.
That is all.
