Geek, poet, activist, scientist, ninja, philosopher, singer, actor, lover, pundit, editor, and of course, ever the cunning linguist... I'm a man of many faces. Whether any of them would appeal to you is an open question.

It's occurred to me that I should comment about my filtering habits. I use custom filters. Frequently. I do not often indicate exactly what filter may be in use, or put labels in the subject, because I don't like the sense of exclusivity that engenders. A good rule of thumb may be to assume that any locked post should be assumed to be private, and should not be discussed with anyone you don't know saw it.
