Greetings, and welcome to The Celestial Spire, your gateway into the mind of Joseph Collins.
If this is your first time here and you're not a spambot, I bid you welcome and hope you find the content to follow interesting and possibly entertaining!
If you're a returning viewer and not a spambot, welcome back! I'm glad you've returned and similarly hope you find the newest batch of entries entertaining and informative.
What follows is any number of random journal entries about goings-on in my life or online. The content varies from entry to entry, some entries being more positive than others. There is sometimes coarse language in these entries, so if that sort of thing offends you, you may want to find another journal to read. Might I suggest my friends' journals? If strong language, rants, and the occasional depressive entry doesn't offend you, however, read on! And if you like what you see, or even if you don't like what you see, feel free to comment! Just remember that anonymous and non-friend comments are automatically screened. Rest assured however, I do read every comment that comes my way.
On the topic of comments, while the journal might show a month or two of recent entries (and the aforementioned perma-Public entries), comments on open entries are screened from non-friends regardless of content. This is done due to abuse in the past from a combination of spambots and malicious users being pests. While it doesn't outright stop spam or garbage comments from being posted, it does prevent them from being displayed. Comments, depending on their content, may or may not be unscreened, but generally speaking, comments that deserve attention will get attention.
This journal gets entry maintenance roughly every month or two and depending on how on-top of things I am. What happens during this period is that older entries are locked up as Friends Only entries. This is done to ensure that my journal is kept neat and clean as well as remove any entries that are no longer relevant in some way or other.
It's worth noting that certain entries of interest may not be buried in Friends Only cleanup. These entries are left open for all to see for one reason or other, be they something I felt that's still relevant and interesting, or just something cool.
With all that out of the way, only one thing remains to be said. Enjoy The Celestial Spire!
