Agreed. There's one cheap attempt to be cute title that truly annoys: RonMon.

I bet you *hate* the blog listed right after yours at present: The Wisdom of Soloman.

Just giving you a hard time...

One thing I've noticed is that bloggers on
all topics, not just golf, seem to prefer
to name their blogs something clever, rather
than attach their names to them. This is
irritating to me, as it seems like they're
trying to duck accountability.

Interesting that you don't see anything wrong with a nom de plume (Ron Mon) but hate the use of a real name in the title. So what if it refers to the writer. At least he's not ducking accountability for the ink.

RonMon is a nickname that kids came up with for me, since Montesano has four syllables, four vowels, and they are lazy. In spite of my Caribbean visage, it is not a reflection of Jamaican heritage. My personal suspicion is that I draw the line at nicknames, with which I'm OK. No, I don't dislike Chris Berman, but that's probably because his tosses come and go with the pace of televison; I must dislike the repetition of constantly seeing the aforementioned in print/digital ink. The Wisdom of Soloman would fall into that category, but don't let that stop him, you, or anybody. Name your column "Bald-Winning"; "Branding Brandon"; or "Curling with Kiel." My voice is one among many.

"My voice is one among many."

Forebodingly similar to "I am Legion" (the
biblical version, rather than the movie/comic book/death metal incarnations).

You still on your meds, Mon?

It's all in the subtext you create. My voice is one voice among many other voices, not one representative of many voices. I am not a super delegate in this instance. As you can see, not everyone is in step with my voice.

What a hypocrite. Do as I say, not as I do. And we're supposed to listen to your thoughts on golf?

Tom,
Could you elaborate? You seem angry, but don't truly express your feelings. I'd like to help you deal with your demons. We don't charge by the word, so feel free to use as many words as you like. I'll help you out with a question or two...What makes me a hypocrite? How can you listen to words on a screen? Now, discuss...
