When a person smiles at another person it indicates any number of things: a genuine happiness at seeing that person, a pleasurable thought, a perpetual, goofy jollity.

When a hippy smiles, an old hippy or young one, it means only one thing: a base, treacly, pathetic cry for approval. Watch out for your honey.

Which is more loathesome: a performer who openly covets audience approval, or a performer who affects disdain for the very fact of performance?

Both covetousness and affectation are bad. Why?

Just wondering.

Both pale, however, next to the irritating "verify that you are not a bot by typing this random sequence of letters and numbers" thing you've got coded into your commenting.

Typepad does that. I hate it too.
