Go placidly amid the Stormy Poets,
and remember what peace there may be in Amber.
As far as possible without regurgitating
be on good terms with all posters.
Write your absurdities quietly and clearly;
and read the others,
even Katip and Fritz Gerlich;
they too have their fantasies.
Avoid loud and aggressive liberal wingnuts,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with neocons,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always most are greater and few are lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your checkmarks even though you don't derserve them.
Abandon your professional duties, however urgent;
it is a lot more fun to be posting your crap on the Fray.
Exercise caution in posting your pictures;
for the world is full of psychotic stalkers.
But let this not blind you to what pleasure there is;
many persons strive for lower standards;
and everywhere life is full of whoredom.
Be anybody but yourself.
Be The Bell or someone who can actually write.
Neither give any thought to love;
for in the face of all such sappy sentiments
it is more popular to write as s gras.
Take kindly the counsel of Itrati,
gracefully surrendering the joys of youth.
Nurture throngs of sycophants to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with important issues.
Many diatribes are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome bohemianism,
be gentle with twiffer and Geoff.
You are a child of the internet,
no less than the banned and the stars;
you have a right to be queer.
And though little or nothing seems clear to you,
no doubt you have waaayyy too much time on your hands.
Therefore be at peace with locdog,
whatever Kevin may conceive Him to be,
and whatever JV-12 or Bluto may counsel,
in the noisy confusion of Tempo keep peace with Slendid_IREny.
With all its Darknight, Skeptical, and FreedomLost,
it is still a beautiful world.
Strive to be silly.
