Friends Only

awwww yissssss

Having a great paucity of friends, relations, and so forth, I welcome all and sundry who wish to read this journal (and I, being too nosy for my own good, will read yours back).


After some recent issues with people friending me, I'd just like to make my policy on conduct in this journal clear.

1) Debate is good, personal attacks are not. Disagree with anything and everything I say, or anything anyone else says on this blog, but don't stoop to the level of hurling insults.
2) Telling me what I can and can't say in my own blog is not appropriate behavior.
3) If you make homophobic, transphobic, racist, antisemitic, antihispanic, ableist, sexist, or otherwise bigoted remarks in your own journal, or on forums that I visit, you will be defriended right quick. If you make them in MY journal, I will take all possible action against you, and you will be banned from my journal.
4) I am an angry evolutionary biologist, and am viscerally appalled by creationism and proselytizing religion. This does not mean that I hate religion. It means that you should keep your Bible to yourself.
5) This journal contains adult concepts, and I expect everyone reading it to behave like an adult in context of the journal.

If you are just interested in following me for my photography and/or rambling about nature, insects and herpetology, I would suggest following my blog instead, which is syndicated at wormsalad

Hi! I saw you on ursulav's blog, thought you had an interesting icon and wandered over here. Lo and behold, you study fossil crocodylians. My girlfriend studies pterosaurs and is completing her Hons. thesis under Steven Salisbury of Queensland. Dunno if you've heard of him.

Anyway, you seem interesting. As for filters: science, religion, books. And hey, any others as well. I like reading interesting posts. Except sex, but thanks for the offer.

And lo, you have been added!

Hey sweety, I'm so happy to see you back on LJ. Chat with you soon I hope.
Jun. 18th, 2007 07:08 pm (UTC)
Purely on the basis that we share large numbers of books on LibraryThing, I would like to add you.
Jun. 18th, 2007 08:02 pm (UTC)
Sounds like a fantastic reason to me. :D
Oct. 13th, 2007 11:21 pm (UTC)
i don't have nearly enough stuff to procrastinate with. I would like to add your lj to the list.
Oct. 14th, 2007 02:12 am (UTC)

Sure! Although I'm pretty lazy at updating the damn thing.
Oct. 21st, 2007 07:54 pm (UTC)
I have added you to my friends no filters please... It just wouldn't be you otherwise...

Oct. 23rd, 2007 06:11 pm (UTC)
Added. :)
Mar. 9th, 2008 12:35 am (UTC)
You seem nice and sensible, and could be interesting reading, so if you don't mind I'd quite like to be added to your friends list. All the different filters please, I need a distraction from marking assignments.
Mar. 10th, 2008 04:09 pm (UTC)
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you -- you're on!
Mar. 12th, 2008 10:36 pm (UTC)
You make me want to research reptiles more :] I'mma adding you :D
Mar. 12th, 2008 11:35 pm (UTC)
Oooh, friends. My circle of minions grows. :)
Mar. 24th, 2008 04:50 am (UTC)
I keep seeing you around (we're in a couple of the same communities)and I've always been curious about you. I would like to learn more about you, if that's ok. :) I would love to read your writings in whatever filters you feel comfortable putting me on. Thank you!
Mar. 24th, 2008 05:11 am (UTC)
Thanks! I'll be happy to add you.
Mar. 28th, 2008 03:42 pm (UTC)
I'm another snake-gal who's noticed how helpful and knowledgeable your comments always are in various herp communities, and so has followed you to your journal... and whoa, that sounds stalkery! But yes, I was wondering if it'd be okay to friend, on as many filters as you wish? :D
Mar. 28th, 2008 04:01 pm (UTC)
Stalkers are my meat and drink! You've been added. :)

Apr. 12th, 2008 07:54 pm (UTC)
Sure thing. :D
May. 1st, 2008 05:15 pm (UTC)
i saw you comment on a badtattoos post about having borderline.

i was recently diagnosed, and it's been a bumpy ride. So! i thought i'd friend you. We both like to laugh at bad tattoos, so that's two things we have in common!

p.s. all your filters sound interesting. =P
May. 2nd, 2008 12:47 am (UTC)
Sure thing. I'll add you on. :)
May. 21st, 2008 10:53 pm (UTC)
I like filters! (And picspamming.)
May. 22nd, 2008 01:01 am (UTC)
Filters, hooray.

Although I basically never use them. I just bother everyone with my boring research.

Wandered over from one of the herp lists. I enjoy reading your posts over there, so thought I would come over here.

Friending you now.
May. 30th, 2008 12:33 am (UTC)
Sure, no problem. :)
Jun. 7th, 2008 12:22 pm (UTC)
i am befriending you because you seem very interesting. and because i saw your faust icon and immediately wondered why i hadn't yet made a faust icon. my journal is a heap of complaints because i am always posting drunk and angrily in it. so, you might not want to read. it.

forgive me it's past 5am and i am looking at wtf_nature. i am bad at words.
Jun. 7th, 2008 12:55 pm (UTC)
No worries! You've been added.
Jun. 9th, 2008 10:18 pm (UTC)
I believe I caught you at WTF_nature a time ago, and noted you down for future adding -- your username sticks to the mind! Add? (As for filters, science, religion, feminism and books all appeal mightily to me.)
Jun. 10th, 2008 08:05 pm (UTC)
Oooh, yes. You shall be added.

If only because your icon's pretty damn awesome.
Jul. 12th, 2008 09:33 am (UTC)
Hi! Mr. Goblinpaladain told me to come here. I generally enjoy the things he points me towards! So here I am. :D
Jul. 12th, 2008 05:34 pm (UTC)
Hello! And welcome.

I think he specifically wanted you to see these: http://crumpetsfortea.livejournal.com/47693.html
Jul. 18th, 2008 12:29 am (UTC)
Hmmmm, ok. I'll take everything but climbing. Will you be my friend?
Jul. 18th, 2008 04:25 am (UTC)
Why, of course. Friends it is, then.
Jul. 20th, 2008 01:42 pm (UTC)
I was wandering about LJ and you look like an interesting friend... add?
I'm therian (avian, not reptile, but we're related!) and lesbian, and science/book geek.

feminism, science, religion, climbing, and books.

Re: Add?
God, I totally missed this. Sorry. :)

Super. Florida's one of the schools that I'm strongly considering for my MSc. Added!
Mar. 11th, 2009 03:06 am (UTC)
added! no filtering, thanks =]
Mar. 26th, 2009 05:37 am (UTC)
I'm not adding you because we don't have much in common, but I wanted to let you know that sacredforest was featured in sf_drama and I read your comments. You are my hero. ♥
Mar. 26th, 2009 05:39 am (UTC)
Thank you. I live to serve.
Mar. 26th, 2009 07:01 pm (UTC)
You were totally awesome in that ridiculous rawdogs post that I want to hear more. :) Especially about feminism, science, religion, and books - the climbing would be lost on me.

See how nicely I worked the filters in? XD
Mar. 26th, 2009 07:05 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, very nice. :D

You have been added.

I just read your conversation over on CF_hardcore. Thought it was one of the most interesting threads I've seen on there in awhile.

In Ref: To the topic, I shall neither agree nor disagree with you since it doesn't matter. I found the conversation interesting.

My friend request is simply general. I assume it can be changed in the future if I discover that "everything" is far too broad.
Apr. 7th, 2009 07:02 pm (UTC)
You have been added. Generally speaking.
Apr. 16th, 2009 05:45 am (UTC)
Hey, saw your DW "cake or death" icon and then saw you're also into reptiles! Cool. I'd like to be on the 'though' filter, please, but picspamming and daily life would also be cool. I'm awefully curious about that saltwater aquarium you've got.
Apr. 16th, 2009 12:18 pm (UTC)
The saltwater is the home of one adorably grumpy anglerfish and lots of tubeworms.
Apr. 16th, 2009 11:34 am (UTC)
You intrigue me. ;D I wandered over after seeing your post in herpers, and I like what I see. hehe.

I make no demands; if you would be comfortable, I would be curious to read more of you, including any and all filters you would put me in. =)
Apr. 16th, 2009 12:21 pm (UTC)
Added! It's very early so I have nothing witty to say beyond that.
