Here, have a badge.

Alrighty, then… If you weren’t frightened off by that last post, I guess you’re here to stay.

To thank you for your patience, here’s a badge that you can use on your own blog (or wherever) if you like:


I’m rather proud of the traditional folk-tale-derived symbolism in this. 🙂 (What it means is, Internet trolls will be kicked off a blog that displays this badge the way the Three Billy Goats Gruff kicked trolls off the bridge in that story.)

Anyway. Just copy the image if you would like to use it.


About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

  1. Great! I love this kind of stuff. I may crop it, though (taking off “allowed!”), for a more compact landscape size that would fit in a banner. I think it will still transmit the full message. Is that okay?

    Please help yourself to the badges in the right sidebar, and the other handouts on the Downloads page of my Irish Firebrands blog. 🙂

  2. Thank you! I like it very much and love the allusion. I have put it in my sidebar. Come take a look. I think it’s very handsome.
