image 8Troythulu is my eldritch and pseudonymous handle, my real names being either Troy Loy or Troy Thompson, take your pick, and I’m frequently given to Annoying Alliterations about Almost Anything interesting.

This blog and others I own are intended as experiments, as an experience, and as an opportunity for the author to engage in gratuitous opinionating, occasional arrogant and condescending diatribes, and random flashes of creativity.

My handle was originally coined by S.A. Barton in a gaming and comic shop conversation about an interest in things Lovecraftian many years ago, and has stuck ever since, horrifically infecting an unfortunate internet, and gaining a fair degree of notoriety even though I’m a relative no-name in the skeptical bloggosphere.

Though blessed, or perhaps cursed, with a habit for snark when irritated into a seething but fun rant, I prefer to inform and persuade by ethical and non-coercive means, and leave others to keep to their own cozy personal beliefs, or not, as they see fit.

Whatever works, I say.

I’ll treat all commentators with the same level of respect that they show in their own posts — trollery and troublemaking will get you in comment moderation or banned — defecating on this blog’s online rug will not be permitted, as I have cats for that, thank you.

Ads, Giveaways, Reviews, and Product Promotions:

image 9

I do periodic reviews or promotions, and sometimes giveaways, but I will only review, promote, or host giveaways on those things I’m interested in myself, and reviews may not necessarily be favorable, but I’ll be as civil, forthright, and charitable as possible — No snark, no bull, no nonsense.

I have done product promotion on at least one of my blogs, and I’ll make it perfectly clear if and when I stand to gain from any ad, promotion, giveaway, or review on any of my sites. Transparency and honesty are of the utmost importance here, so you WILL be informed and in no uncertain terms.

Commenting Guidelines:

image 4I believe in freedom of speech,but also in responsibility in commenting behavior, and in avoiding unnecessary legal entanglements resulting from abusive, illegal, obscene, or libelous commentary.

While you are free to criticize others in the comment threads of this and other of my sites,  keep the language acceptable and the content legal and civil. Links to objectionable websites are unacceptable except in the proper context of a discussion thread, and may be redacted.

Comments linking to sites of an illegal nature or containing threats of physical harm or verbal abuse of others will be deleted and the commentator permanently banned from posting on this site.

While I strive for presenting material on this site in as truthful a manner as possible, it is impossible for me to guarantee the complete factual accuracy of the material and at least some of it may be in error. If this is the case, and you can point out to me the error, and a credible source, agreed on by both of us, that shows it, I shall happily correct the inaccuracy and give you credit for pointing it out to me in an entry mentioning you.

I have a low tolerance for trollery and asshattery. I reserve the right to use any comment posted on this site in a manner that may be comedic, illustrative, exemplary of some variety of silliness, informative, or otherwise enlightening or entertaining to other readers on this site.

You have been warned.

Note on Guest Posts, Reblogs & Interviews:

MB3d11amgiI’m the owner and the sole author on my WordPress blogs, my Blogger site, and my Tumblr page, and sometimes I’ll reblog an item from another site I’m following or that catches my interest.

I also host guest posts on my blogs, as long as they pertain to the site’s overall topic matter. This includes science fiction, fantasy fiction, science, scientific skepticism, fractals and fractal art, logic and argumentation, scientific literacy, books, logical literacy, pseudoscience and the paranormal, and philosophy.

As site owner, I hold the right to edit in an appropriate and forthright manner any guest post or interview submitted to this site or to decline to publish it for any reason.

  1. Troy, Thanks for the comment on the Juggler dude. Go to his YT channel, and I think he gives the band names for his background music.

    “and as an opportunity for the author to indulge himself in gratuitous opinionating, occasional arrogant and condescending diatribes, and random flashes of creativity.”

    That last part of your self-description could apply to me as well. If someone took away my gratuitous opinionating, I don’t know what I’d have left. I would be a sad shell of a man.

  2. Just wanted to say, I ran across your blog today, and if the rest of your posts as as good as the first one I have read (and will be re-posting later this week with all due credit given to you of course), then it seems I’ll be spending just a little bit more time each day reading blogs (son of a bitch, I already read too many, I guess showering is gonna have be the next part of life I have to cut out)…

  3. It is fantastic You remind me an American friend of mine with dyslexia in childhood and IQ 145 who cannot tolerate the stupidity of the masses and moved to rural area of China where he as a tall and handsome foreigner treated with adoration and respect from the short in stature and intelligence peasants. He has a driver, a housekeeper and massage therapist ( a girl), everything for 1500 bucks a month!

  4. I had some difficulty reading some of the material on your about page, either because of my bad eyes or because of the color scheme and font. Just as eye candy, however, your blog is lovely.

    • Thanks, Kheleya. I’ll have to revise this page, then. It seems I may not have thought out the font/image mix well enough to maximize readability. With your comment, I’ll get to work on that soon.
