This blog is written by  a Radical Centrist and is intended to promulgate that viewpoint. The author is fully aware that he is writing an opinion blog, and that not everyone will agree with every post. ‘Sallright.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky has been taken to task for not being nice enough in his blogging. His answer: “Have you actually read the title of the blog lately?”. It is not LightAndFluffy, SoftAndCuddly or NambyAndPamby. C’mon, this is a rare case of truth in advertising. If you’re offended by a post, wait a while, you’ll probably be happy when someone you don’t like is offended by another post (just like they probably were when you got ticked off). But don’t be acting all shocked and s**t when the writing here sounds, well, blunt. And mayhap even a wee bit cranky.

Comments are welcome, crap is not. Replies are not guaranteed to come in a timely manner, due to scheduling pressures. If you were polite and constructive and did not see your comment posted or get a reply, it could be because it was agreed with or just got overtaken by events. No offense meant.

Trolls and spammers will be ruthlessly subjected to shunning (Mr. B & C grew up in Amish country), because arguing with an abusive idiot is bad for the health. It’s a lot smarter to digitally bin the “comments” of some yahoo that crows about being able to continually spam you with their obnoxious crap ad nauseum than it is to engage them. As a wise man once said, “Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig”.

Happy reading and commenting to you.

It seems pretty obvious that the opinions expressed herein are strictly those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect those of his employers, family, or dog. But, America being afflicted with a glut of lawyers, the statement is being made.
