Audience of one

        If you are one of the people who checks this blog regularly looking for an update, you may be a little disappointed in today's post, because it's really directed at one individual. You may still find it interesting, though.
        This is directed at an individual who I will only refer to as "R". I don't think he would care if I put his full name up since he put his e-mail in a comment that I could potentially put up for everyone to see, but I think I'd rather handle it this way.
        R has posted a couple of "comments" on my blog. I put comments in quotes because they are actually inquiries about buying my Twitter name @WordsInTheStone.
        R, I checked out your info (what little there is of it) on the student directory of your university. It's a state university. There's no indication that you are a member of the football, baseball, or basketball team. Your major  isn't one that I would consider to have huge earning potential.
        In other words, R, there's nothing to indicate that you have, or will have in the future, any money. I don't see any way for you to buy my Twitter name. Of course, I could be wrong. You could actually be an undergrad pursuing a liberal arts degree at a public university who happens to have some money stashed away.    
        It could be the case that you're just going to college because you're interested in education for its' own sake and not because you want a degree to help land you a job and you didn't want to go to some stuffy elite private university, so you went to the public one instead, but I doubt it. If I'm wrong, please feel free to make an offer. Keep in mind, for me to even think about it, the minimum would be in the five figure range. If you were thinking a couple hundred bucks would do it, please don't waste my time or yours asking about it again.
