To the followers and readers of Powdered Wig Society: We are moving….

We have been trying desperately to transition to a new web host/server that is more able to meet the needs of Powdered Wig Society. It has been a VERY frustrating process.

If Powdered Wig Society disappears all of a sudden over the next few days it is because we are in Cyber Purgatory, en route to the new Heaven (web host/server) that awaits us.

We have attempted this switch three times. Each time there was one cyber/HTML SNAFU or another that prevented a clean transition.

Soooooo, we are going to try again. At some point over the next 24 hours we are going to disappear into that dreaded Cyber Purgatory. Not to worry! We will be back! The transition takes 4 to 24 hours (more like 24). Thank you all so much for your support! facebook-frustration_full

    Um, that would be Purgatory. Please, I am trying to be helpful, NOT snarky: I value the efforts of anyone who is trying to return our nation to its Constitutional limits; yet spelling, punctuation, and grammar DO affect an audience’s perception of credibility, especially on a first impression, as this post (a FB post shared by a friend) was for me . Attention to detail, editing, and proofreading are critical skills, if a message is to be taken seriously. I hope you take this in the spirit in which it is intended.

    • If you had any idea how much time and effort I spend proofreading and editing! I know, I know, Captain Grammar – incomplete sentence. Author’s license!

      While I welcome and appreciate constructive criticism, I bristle at criticism that is delivered in a “snarky” manner, notwithstanding the commenter’s insistence that his criticism is “NOT snarky.” Yes, it is.

      A less abrasive critique would have gone along the lines of, “Just trying to help. “Purgatory” is the proper spelling,” to which I would have very gratefully replied, “Thank you! I missed that one.”

      Comments like, “Attention to detail, editing, and proofreading are critical skills,” (as though I should give up writing for one of those new $15-an-hour burger-flipping jobs) leave me perplexed, depressed, and wondering why the hell I do this.

      I once told a doctor who was operating on me for free that he was a stupid, incompetent fuck. He got mad. Imagine that!
