Merry Christmas to all!

Just dropping in for the customary exchange of greetings. Except in this case is isn't really an exchange as such, being as it is a blog whose very nature dictates that all communication can only traverse the distance between our computers in one single direction (with that being from myself to you). Unless of course one takes into account the possibility that you, the user, make use of the post commenting function, in which case it could be argued that this does indeed constitute an exchange of greetings. That said, it is one which is rarely consummated - as can be seen from the sparsity of such reciprocations on this very website, precious few internet users are of the commenting persuasion and a page generally needs to have somewhere in the region of a hundred viewers in order to secure a comment. And that's assuming the page is even relevant to the interests of that particular set of users and capable of provoking the thought required to drive them to express views upon it. Sadly these are criteria which have almost certainly gone unmet by this particular work (what with it being a foolishly pedantic ramble), and so it is logically defensible to say that this post does not, in fact, count as an exchange of greetings in any but a few cases. Therefore my first sentence was erroneous. Sorry about that.

Merry Christmas!


  1. No, your second to last sentence is now erroneous.

  2. Ah, not quite - you forgot to say "merry Christmas" or some similar greeting, and so the 'exchange' remains unreciprocated. Therefore, the logic supporting my second-to-last sentence stands unperturbed ;-)
