` Finally; Number Four, Bethink Avenue is up and running! So, what's it all about? For a clue I'll include the first post I put up there, entitled First; The Rules, which went like this....
` This is a blog where I will explore various ideas and promote critical thinking. But I will be doing this in an intellectual manner, not a comedic one as I have before.` The post was followed by seventeen reactions, including;
` It's true that I like to be a seriously silly person, though sometimes I prefer to be just plain serious:
` There will be no hostility towards anybody, no hurling insults, no offensive language, and (for good measure) no sexual connotations on this weblog! I'm sorry if you feel I am a spoilsport for this, as Bethink Avenue is for... well... presenting ideas and logic in a 'civilized' manner.
` If anyone does make such comments, I will simply delete them; even my own friends have to be careful of what they say. I honestly don't want comments to get out of hand because I know these things can get pretty ugly. (Pretty ugly - is that an oxymoron?)
` Besides my 'rules of decency', of course, you can say what you like so don't think I'm trying to censor people if they don't agree with me! Arguments are fine, as long as they are done intellectually!
` Now; if you have anything to say about anything I've written, let us develop a seemly dialog!

` I might, actually! I just hope that's not too tough for my Bethink visitors to handle. I just want to be really serious and professional here. Who knows? It could lead to a career someday!
` So, to make sure I didn't invite flaming or people rebuking me for being proud of having non-professionalness, I took the links to my other blogs off of Bethink Avenue, then created an entirely different profile so that I didn't have to remove my other blogs from my own profile.
` Some people actually commented on this move - Gareth asked;
Umm where did your 4th blog go to? :-)
` Well, now that I have an actual thread going, I have finally linked Bethink Avenue from my three other blogs (as you can see), plus I have been advised to put a link to my art blog on it as well. That one could inadvertently result in people stumbling into my other two, but only if they were actually interested in the Other Side of Spoony.
` By the way, the Worthy Science Sources website now says:
A New Blog Website Devoted To Essays On Science, Philosophy, And Current Events
S. E. E. Quine
Her first essay is called "The Importance of Comparison"
` Well, why not? (Hint!! Hint!)
