[...] mine even as I speak them, right now. I’ve noticed that Twitter enthusiasts can be a bit … sensitive … about anything that they perceive as negativity about Twitter. So let me just note that [...]

Pat: I pretty much feel the same way you do about Twitter. But it's pretty clear, I think, that others have stronger feelings. Thanks for the feedback.

I don't think most people do have extreme reactions to Twitter. Those are just the people you notice because they make a lot of noise. Most of us, I suspect, look at something like Twitter, shrug, and then go back to whatever we were doing beforehand. Twitter doesn't interest me because I don't care what my acquaintances are doing every minute of the day, and I don't want them to know what I'm doing every minute of the day. If some people love Twitter and see it as important, that's cool. I don't hate it or anything; it just isn't useful to me.

David: Thanks for the peacemaker role, and Johnnie Moore, thanks for understanding and again sorry for the misunderstanding. No harm no foul .. I hope! Collier and Rebecca, thanks for the feedback on the debranding thing. I'm still sort of on the fence. I understand the urge, but buying a premade debranding set seems weird to me.

I hit send too soon. 5. Don't you need to check the expiration date sometimes on your products after you've had them for a while? Or check the list of ingredients? okay, I think I'm done.

Let others do what they will, but I can think of several drawbacks to the Debranding containers: 1. It's extra work to transfer the products into the new containers. You'll have to use funnels. 2. Each transfer will cause you to lose some of the product, as the residue from your hand lotion or whatever remains in its original container. You'll go through the products faster, which I guess is great news for the manufacturers. 3. It's yet another product to buy, beyond the lotions and shampoos themselves, which you're already buying. 4. How is this any better than buying or reusing just about any other suitable container that's already out there (perhaps at the Container Store) and sticking your own label on it? Do we really need a special product designed for the express purpose of un-branding your branded products--a product that is, in a way, itself a branded product?

Hell yes to "Debranded Home." I design ads for a living. I don't want to see them in my house. Products that don't come in aesthetically pleasing packages/labels either get the labels peeled off, or they get put into different containers...or they don't get purchased to begin with. Nice site, btw. It's my first visit, and you're my newest bookmark.

Hey there -- I was just making a joke, not taking a cheap shot. Trying to be funny, that's all. You want me to take it out? Seriously, I was simply kidding around.
