Are you a digital Voyeur?

Did you only come to this page to see if you can read anything interesting without the writer knowing that you read this? Leave a comment. I dare you....

This is an interesting question, but it seems framed in a manner not intended to produce a neutral, objective response. A question of the type like "When did you stop beating your wfe?" That is, the question forms the answer instead of awaiting it.

The word voyeur has connotations which are in general negative. The word is commonly used to refer to a person whose vision illicitly penetrates the privacy of others for his own gratification.

Therefore it would seem that the use of this word is not appropriate for the question above.

This website is open to the public. Anyone may look at it. Therefore it is not private and one who reads it is not like a peeping tom looking into a young woman's bedroom window, but can more accurately by likened to a person reading a sign in a public place.

But to answer the question- yes, the j0llyr0ger only visited this site to see if he could read anything interesting without the writer knowing the he did so.

So please do NOT tell anybody the j0llyr0ger wrote this comment OK? Shhh! It's a secret...

So people actually read blogs. That is good to know. There is so much being published all the time that one has hardly time to rad besides to write. If we all write, nobody is reading.
