Housekeeping: POSTING COMMENTS

Lot’s of people are posting comments.  This brings me to urge… nay rather… insist that commenters adhere to a couple simple guideliness.

First, when you are responding to someone else, make sure his or her name or "handle" is the FIRST word of your comment.  In this way the other person will see easily that you are addressing him.  If you don’t do this, the conversation get’s confusing.

Second, if you are going to quote someone else, kindly keep the quote as brief as possible, focusing only on the relative pointThere is no sense in simply dumping text into the comment window.  This is merely to clutter and it is, quite frankly, lazy.

Kindly observe these guideliness when posting comments and the blog will be easier to use.

  1. Love the new pic, Fr. Z! :)

  2. Jeffrey Stuart says:

    From the new pic, it is evident you spend time in Rome. ;)

  3. Guy Power says:

    Fr. Z looks like he’s saying, “Un poco”.

  4. Dirk says:

    Fr. Z is saying:” Wait just a litle longer…the Motu Proprio is coming!

    Fr. John,

    We could have a wonderful time with a caption contest for your new photo. I have a number of thoughts in mind…

  6. Jeffrey Stuart says:

    My youngest son (five) saw the picture and commented, “He looks like a Pope.”

  7. Brian Day says:

    Fr. Z is saying:” Wait just a litle longer…the Motu Proprio is coming!

    Hmmmm…Is there a “news blackout”? The Apostolic Exhortation was rumored to be released yesterday with the MP released about the same time. Yet there is no news recently of either.

    I question the quality of Fr. Z’s spies. :-)

  8. Jeffrey Stuart says:

    Fr. Z is saying: “Mama Mia! That’s a spicy meatball!”

  9. Diane says:

    Father Z: Oooo-tay!

  10. Brian: Fr. Z knows all, tells only some. o{];¬)

  11. Andrew says:

    I wonder if Fr. Z. posted that picture so as to give himself an opportunity to practice the virtue of humility.

  12. Brian Day says:

    Fr. Z,

    :-)

  13. Diane says:

    Andrew asked: I wonder if Fr. Z. posted that picture so as to give himself an opportunity to practice the virtue of humility.

    Huh?

  14. Diane: Don’t worry about what he wrote. It was probably just a cheap shot.

  15. Guy:

    Somehow I see Father Z as a “un peu,” or “ein bitte” sort of fellow…

  16. Tim Ferguson says:

    “just a tiny little bit of dry vermouth…”

  17. Guy Power says:

    Fr. Fox,

    Vieleich der Pfarrer Z hast drei gins und tonic bestellen?
    Perhaps Father Z has ordered three gins and tonic?
