[-empyre-] Question

Sure......I suppose the same could be said for much of experimental
fiction or abstract art etc....the idea that unexpected posts might
appear to be spam at first is a valid concern.....

but much like graffiti or other tagging, the art comes from posting
something that both "fits in that net space" and creates an interesting
part of a narrative or simply a pretty micro fiction or even a non
sensical poem....

these places where users can enter data and briefly express themselves
are quickly becoming a powerful form of written communication and
therefore we creative types must begin to explore those conduits 
as venues/canvasses for interesting words....

so I suppose I would throw it back to you and say write something
that doesnt seem spam like.....

cheers, Jason
