Um :)

My talkification of my userpage (or was it the userfication of my talk
page?) came out of boredom with a completely useless talk page.  All
the interesting stuff is on the talk page, so why waste time
maintaining both?

Needless to say I make vastly more use of userspace than most Wikipedians.

Of course this isn't about self expression at all, but about its
reverse: uniformity and regimentation.  They must die.
