  • Vickie Davis vs. Darth Commenter “ As you meet DC, you will emerge with your own calling. Without a calling, it is difficult to keep up with the blog and it just becomes a nuisance. Blogging, if you truly inhale its essence, will give you a calling, renewal, and purpose, as you've never seen before. Darth Commenter is out there and his goal is to steal your enthusiasm for blogging with his light saber of unkindness. Do not feel compelled for some "noble" reason to post his comment. Delete Darth and never look back.”
