Vol 12 , Issue 9
Equity, I want to write for De Minimis but I'm worried I'll get a negative reaction from online comments. What should I do?
Equity was once afraid, Equity was petrified! Comments do not commend themselves to calmness. Those incorrigible commenters will be there at every turn, Equity can hear them now;
‘Great Dane? What’s a dog got to do with the price of fish?’
‘Book Fairy sign ups link below ;)’
‘Kirbz waz here’
Have they no shame Non-Anon?! Equity stands on the shoulders of Earls! Of Kings! Of people like Jack Baker who cleverly build huts on their father’s land much to the chagrin of evil stepmothers (see Inwards v Baker, honestly first years, Equity sees your unopened textbooks and Equity is not impressed). The derivative drivel, goes on non-anon, and on and on. Equity often looks down at Equity’s clean hands and wonders, will that which ought to be done ever be done?
As for you my worried writer, remember she who seeks equity must do equity. Write articles to get articles, scribble scriptures to solicit solicitors, rap out reviews to get revenue. Be the Waleed Aly to Equity-y.
Stingy De Minimis has Equity working overtime at 1 word a week, Equity does not delight in dictatorial editors. Equity has posted a help wanted sign outside the Courts of Chancery, so apply within. In return, Equity can offer that greatest of all rewards – Equity-
Yours, Equity Uncle.
