By way of amplification: This does not mean I was nine years old at the
time of the Jihad Against Barney postings; as far as I know, those
postings were correctly spelled. It's just that age nine, for me, is an
age forever associated with "bad writer", due to sixty pages of
appalling garbage which I wrote while attempting a science-fiction
novel. (Although, come to think of it, it was correctly spelled garbage.)
