In a recent post, I was accused of "stealing" viewers from John Edwards. This is a good opportunity for me to explain how I got control of this website.
First of all, a domain name is a necessary part of any website. Whenever you type a web address into the browser bar, the "___.com" is the domain name. "JohnEdwards.org" was at one time the home of the campaign website for John Edwards when he ran for US Senate and President the first time. Individuals get to keep their domain names forever, as long as they pay about ten dollars per year to renew the registration. John Edwards did not renew "JohnEdwards.org" so I bought it in a public auction. This is very similar the kind of auction that happens when a piece of real estate has been vacant for a specified amount of time.
Neglecting control of "johnedwards.org" is a major blunder that represents complete ignorance of the Internet. This will go down in history as being at least as stupid as when Senator Stevens said that the Internet "is a series of tubes."
Reasons NOT to vote for John Edwards
John Edwards would be a bad President. This judgment is based on my personal assessment of his leadership abilities and his policies. There are many logical reasons not to vote for John Edwards which I will explore on this blog. I hope that you join me in this important discussion by posting comments and sending me your "reasons" at firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to maintain the integrity of an intellectual discussion, there are two rules that will govern all content on this blog: 1. personal attacks will not be tolerated and 2. every "reason" must be factual and must cite sources.
