Blog Warning Meme- I'm asking the readers

I stole this Meme from At the Back of the Hill.

And I want YOU to tell me your suggestions for my blog! They can be humorous or serious, as you like.

1. What warning would you have on your blog for the unsuspecting?

2. Why do you think they need to be warned?

3. What does that say about them?

4. And who else should put up a warning?

I already have a warning! It says that the blog is "for madment only", which is actually a warning I "borrowed" from Hermann Hesse's Steppenwolf, to fit the general theme of my blog, The Ignoble Experiment, a.k.a. Live Dangerously! I put up the warning so that boring, uncreative people w/o imagination would stay away rather than get needlessly offended by something un-PC or weird in my blog. As for who else should put it up... Hmm, I think any blogger who really thinks of him/herself as independent-minded should have a "humorous" warning to take care of trolls.

I never even noticed it was missing!

1) I'm originally from Cleveland.
2) Ask Jack. :)
3) That they're as dumb as Jack! :D
4) Stacey.

In all seriousness, I'd guess that my blog is of the (rare?) variety that doesn't need a warning. That may be because I'm not anonymous in the slightest... I wonder.

I'm not sure if 'warning' is the right description, but most could use an intro of sorts so people don't jump on them for certain opinions et al or rehash old debates that are not going to go anywhere.

Your intro should probably explain a bit of your past: Going to "Templars", switching to a prep school, now in Stern, thinker/writer/unafraid to speak your mind etc. Or something like that.

I'm curious what other people think I should put up, actually.

Yay! My meme is catching on! (I feel special. Look at the comments on this post of Steg's to see where it actually came from.)
