Grrr!, the opposite of GARR

[Posted on L&P on July 4, 2012.]

        I know, I know, we’ve all been spoiled by the Internet, and we all want the same things.  We want to be entertained.  We want instant gratification.  We want someone else to do all our work for us.  We want the information, we want it now, and we want it for free.  The lurkers out there want us to give them pictures of all of these things so they can harvest them, don’t they?  Well, of course they do, the image scavengers!  But there’s been way too much spoon-feeding going on these days in the pen message boards and blogs and websites.  So they’ll have to wake up and look up and research some of these things themselves, and not just for themselves.  They might want to share some of these things with others for a change.  No Grrr’s around here, only GARR’s.
