I have written 7 ‘notes’ on Facebook during the last month, which the website owners consider ‘abuse’ as they have blocked me from posting any more. I had been using a facility whereby when you write blog posts they are imported into Facebook as notes, but it is obviously intended only for very occasional users. The help page:
Unfortunately, Facebook cannot provide any specifics on the rate limits that we enforce. Please know, however, that the speed at which you are acting and the sheer number of actions you have made are both taken into account.
It is true that when I was updating this blog daily my notes were at the rate of about one a day. Perhaps I am being disciplined retrospectively.
As punishment for the sheer number of my sins my Facebook notemaking powers have been removed and the red ‘you’ve been naughty’ sign above pops up to remind me of my guilt whenever I try to look as notes that anyone else has written. As an additional reprimand notes from others do not show up in my feed at all.
I’d like to take this opportunity to apologise to everyone for the misery that my excessive notemaking has obviously caused. I will, in order to spare everyone further unhappiness, refrain from posting any more notes from this day onwards. Assuming i can work out how to turn them off of course.

I’m aware that there are currently some problems on the cartoon pages of CartoonChurch.com and on the category pages of this blog.
I’m looking into them, but at the moment I am slightly mystified. I’m being told “Got error -1 from storage engine”, whatever that means.
At the time of writing the cartoons can still be accessed via this page. Otherwise there are a few cartoons here on my backup site if you need one urgently for a parish magazine.
Sorry for any inconvenience or complication that this may cause you.

One more cartoon for now. You can see the large version here along with the link to the high resolution printable version. There’s no charge if you want to print it out for the door / wall of the church office, but if you’d like to publish it in your church magazine or elsewhere I’d appreciate you buying a licence (for church use) or getting in touch. If that’s OK of course. Thank you!
I’ll post a few more soon. I have a new ftp programme (the one that enables me to upload things to the internet) and it has taken me half the day to tweak the dials, find the passwords, find the passwords which will enable me to find the passwords and work out whether it can make the tea and do the washing up.
Anyway, hello to anyone who is reading from a church office. Hope your day is going well. My advice would be to keep this page* open in another window in case the vicar comes in and finds you casually browsing cartoons when the noticesheet isn’t yet finished.
*Open invitation to bloggers: See whether you can fill that page.

See a larger version of this cartoon here on CartoonChurch.com. I thought it was about time I uploaded a few more. This is another one from the first book, the Dave Walker Guide to the Church. Perhaps I’ll upload some from the new book before too long.
