  1. Can you please for the life of me change your bullet-point presentation? If you give us the same words without this shitty format it will be taken seriously. No offense.

    • what is your problem with the format…others are seeing through the format and taking the content seriously…please explain…constructive criticism is a beautiful thing…helps me grow…aids my understanding…peace

      • I happen to enjoy your presentation. Keep up the good work, and don’t change for anyone. You’re doing just fine. It defines who you are.

      • It’s extremely distracting. I didn’t mean to sound rude. I don’t speak as text may present my words.

        I just feel that if you presented your words in a different manner you’d reach a wider audience. That was purely my intent.

        • thank you…and I’ll consider that…in the meantime, feel free to comment, especially on the thought value of the content…we want Intellectual Dialogue, where we exchange ideas as equals in a Respectful Manner, to inspire Thought, not agreement…peace

    • No offense?!?! Where in your comment before you spewed it was there no offense? Obviously you were offended. Guess YOU are not worth anything. This blogger does quite well. I’ll visit yours and I hope you visit mine with you complete lack of disregard for yourself. Maybe mine or another can help YOU better without YOUR offense attacking another’s success.

        • You were OBVIOUSLY offended by the content of this post. Then you you said no offense. You were not offended here? He knows you are so why no offense? You should be just as important in that statement. SO why aren’t you? The title of your blog alone tells me you expect the worse before it even appears. Tells me you are in need of support. Reeks of you don’t think anything is good enough to keep hurt away.

          I commented on your blog and you are welcome to mine so we don’t have to clog up this gentlemen’s blog if you wish to reply to my reply.

    • I don’t know how much of this blog you’ve read, but I’d be surprised to learn you’ve given it much more than a superficial skim. If you had, you’d understand why these readers have reacted so swiftly to an aspect of InterNet culture your posture and language represent – a rough, cynical, sort of lounging about, sniping at the many people who clog up the Net in ways that don;t meet your standards. If I have just characterized the actual you unfairly, that means your comment is more powerful than you are – more of a habit than an expression of you.
      That’s why it feels so jarring and intrusive in this space: few bloggers seek human connection and meaning as genuinely as RD. Cynicism is pretty much lost on him, and he’s rarely ready to treat anyone who communicates with him dismissively. Most bloggers would respond to your dismissive posturing by dismissing it right back. Yours wasn’t a genuine effort to persaude RD to preserve the integrity of his content; thus, the exasperation it expressed was gratuitious. Your use of the plural, followed immediately by a switch to the third person reinforces my contention. You become “us”, and suddenly you’re claiming a representative authority. No, L.V.X : you don’t mean ‘us’, you mean ‘I”. And the third person “it will be taken seriously” – No again. You’re not representing a committee here – you’re speaking only for yourself: again, what are you really doing, other than pushing RD around?

      RD’s bullet format does go against conventional wisdom and mainstream media / business /design standards. At first glance, I’d probably agree it’s not the best choice. But only at first glance. This isn’t a mainstream media/business/ or design site. This is the Mind of RD Revillo and that’s what he’s invited us to share: everything from the colors, images, shapes and photos, to the ideas and questions, to the reason bullet points accented by certain colors struck RD’s fancy – it all reflects how RD sees the world.

      That’s about as legitimate an activity for a human brain as one can ask for.

      He doesn’t have to change the format so that other brains can passively absorb, rather than interact. But he imposes very little: RD is interested in ideas and perceptions that differ from his own. He seeks intersections, connections, and juxtapositions. And he believes in peace: cultivating it, protecting it, and communicating with it. He has a lot more faith in it than I do.
      RD doesn’t need me to give a long speech in his defense. But this exchange got me to thinking about what I value most about the technology that has transformed the way we think about communication. And in terms of blogs, I could think of no better example than the Mind of RD Revillo.

      • Whatever lady. I was drunk and still am annoyed that his formatting is how it is. I don’t deny enjoying his material. I just wanted to express it’d reach a wider audience if it didn’t aesthetically appear the way it did.

        Criticism is necessary. I am sick of blogging, Most of the people who blog, I’ve found, are incapable of commenting on anything of value, yet profoundly enjoy Ego-boosting bullshit that I myself have even failed at attempting to write whole-heartedly.

        Throw a scholastic argument in, and your post is ignored. But express a personal or voyeuristic experience and your sentiments are taken as fact beyond the stats.

        My originally intended point was simply that if that writer didn’t have the bullets I would be more willing to take the writing seriously.

        I’m stubborn and read things like Melmoth the Wanderer so when I see something I don’t like that I think should actually be worthwhile I’ll comment about it.

        Thing is, it doesn’t fucking matter.Though I appreciate your response, even if it was meant to make mine irrelevant.

        • “If I have just characterized the actual you unfairly, that means your comment is more powerful than you are – more of a habit than an expression of you.”

          That’s closer to the actuality of it, Claire.

        • People are tired of scholastic arguments, LVX. The world is full of ‘pros’ and ‘cons’, relentless debates of the logical mind which tell nothing about the true state of it (us).

          Your personal experiences say more about who you are, than any scholarly articles.
          Breathe in… and let go.
