"Garm"?/Disclaimer/ Etc.

This site looks best when viewed using Firefox, though everything does work in IE, Safari, et. al. If you visit and some little thing or another is different, it's because Garm is both anal-retentive and likes working on the code for the site.
We've hacked (as in "customizing" and/or as in "using an ax") the default Blogger code like crazy, so if there's a problem with the site loading or with any of the links/features, let us know at (or use the "Contact" link at the top left sidebar) and we'll endeavor to fix it promptly.
Though Garm Howling encourages and welcomes comments about any of the entries in this blog, there are a few things that must be addressed:

  1. The short version: it's Garm's sandbox, and he'll play in it as he likes.
  2. Any comment/trackback that even looks like spam will be deleted.

  3. Anonymous comments are allowed, but not encouraged (pet peeve); rather, it's preferred that those who comment give everyone else a name to see and respond to.

  4. We don't mind if you don't agree with something on this site, and if you choose to comment to let us know, do so in a civil manner. We're more than willing to discuss any issue (time permitting) but don't expect a reaction to insults.

  5. The site administrator(s) is not responsible for the comments of others, but please keep the language relatively clean and refrain from racist, sexist, etc. remarks. This is NOT the place for such activity, you dirty communist whore. Additionally, threatening comments/email/other communications against the site contributors or other readers/users of this site will not, under any circumstances, be tolerated and the originator(s) of such communications will be dealt with in whatever manner the site administrator(s) see fit. However, things said in jest will be acceptable. Garm will be decide what is or is not a jest.

  6. The site contributors can and will comment about anything and everything they want, with ONE exception: they must post negatively about Steven Seagal. A site contributor who posts anything that could be construed, even in the most remote way, as being not negative regarding Steven Seagal risks public flogging.

Oh, and these rules are subject to changes, subtractions, retractions, and additions.
Ok, because we've been asked, we'll explain what the names mean:

In Norse mythology, Garm was a huge dog that guarded the gates to the underworld. According to the myth, his howling was one of the preludes to the end of the world. In other words, the world is going to hell in a hand basket, and I'm complaining about it.

What does "genie junkie" mean? It's a mystery known only to the upper echelons of the Illuminati. young girls when they dream of Mr. Right, and possibly Batman.

Why do we use pseudonyms? Well, in genie's case, it's the fact that there are certain people in his professional life who really, really wouldn't want him talking politics publicly. Not that he ever talks about what goes on in his workplace here, but work is work, blog is blog.

"Garm" is not a pseudonym.

(jeez, way too much time was taken to write this)
