Knight of Angels – Home Page

A warm welcome to all of you who stop by.  Thank you for reading.  ♥ 

Latest Site Updates:

My Star Trek blog project, These Are the Voyages, has a new expansion, a sub-page for my episode blogs on The Animated Series.  These are less formal, just a short set of thoughts for each episode.  Eventually, I’ll hit all of the episodes and films in sequence.

Notes About Hackers and Spammers:

To continue the fight against spam, comments are now personally moderated and must be manually approved.  But I still encourage discussion, and I can certainly tell the difference between friend and foe.  Please feel free to contact me about anything and everything.  I’d love to hear from you!  If you have a question, or if there’s something you’d like me to blog about, I do reader requests.

For the would-be spammers (you know who you are), your ads and links are filtered and auto-deleted.  I literally never see them.  On rare instance where I do see them, I have to manually approve them before they appear on the site.  I will delete them.  But, hey… thanks for those extra page hits.  Every little bit helps.  ;)

Related to this, I also actively remove empty profiles and clearly suspicious profiles from my followers list.  Nothing personal.  A girl can’t be too careful.

Notes to Readers:

As of November 12, 2017, star ratings will not apply.  See this post for details.
