Aren't they generally named after the doctor rather than the first patient any way? I always thought that was kind of a bummer.

So my computer only flashes for a second before turning off, and I'm 60% sure that it's not my fault.

Because of Internet marketing, it's a safe bet that a fair number of online reviews, including those on review aggregate sites, are faked. They could be positive fakes, or negative ones. You can't trust video reviews either, because it's a simple matter to hire an actor on Fiverr.com and have them read a script you write for them.

Knowing this, it becomes very difficult to select a company to hire, since you can't always trust reviews. All you can really do is get recommendations from people you know.

My point is that marketing is evil.

We have an economic system and culture that rewards unbridled greed, deceitful business, and where the primary focus is monetary gains. Are you surprised advertisement and marketing is the way it is?

I used to work in marketing, so no. But it still disgusts me.

I'm not sure exactly where this message should go, but please be advised - My Scrolls of Lore Private Message Inbox is full and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future. If you wish to communicate with me through an ostensibly private channel, please use the Scrolls of Lore Discord's Direct Message feature.

That would take time. I would need to archive some and parse through others. Easier just to tell people to do it this way.

Two hundred.

Anyway, just in case you don't know, not only can you delete your private messages, you can also download them. I have received several hundred messages over my tenure here, but this haven't been exactly a problem.

1. That’s stupid.
2. You’re stupid.
3. You can delete the messages you sent but keep the ones you received.
4. Do you really think you’re conversations are that important?
