My name is Karen Healey. I'm a Pākehā woman living in New Zealand.

I make up lies and I sell them to teenagers.

If you friend me, do introduce yourself. I like meeting new people! Be warned that I am notoriously crap at replying to comments; it doesn't mean I don't like you, it just means I'm lazy, busy and/or distracted. Also be warned! Unless I solicit advice in the course of an entry I am very unlikely to want or welcome it.

The Rule:

Respect others. Be adult. Hate speech will not be tolerated; that means no racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, ablism, victim-blaming, or any other form of discriminatory speech. This includes insulting icons attached to otherwise rule-following posts.

If you break The Rule, or are otherwise a jerk - and I have sole discretion on whether that has happened - I will delete the offending comment and possibly ban you.

Mostly, this isn't a problem, because the people who comment on this journal tend to be decent, ethical people with interesting things to say in a non-offensive manner. The Rule is in place because I like this state of affairs and wish to maintain it.

The Other Rule That Is More Like A Guideline Depending On My Crankiness Level And Relative Access To Chocolate

I seriously hate ellipses. Like, one bit me as a baby or something, I don't know. Anyway, you know how some people use them in place of commas or fullstops or any punctuation at all? Don't be that person in my comments.
