Desperately needing a break I closed my blogs under this username for two reasons:
I had allowed myself to fall for someone here on WordPress who as it turned out was unworthy of my friendship. So I left for awhile until I could flush her out of my system as well as my heart.
Then someone from Twitter wandered onto my blog and left a comment falsely accusing me of promoting the sexual abuse of women. Not only was the accusation without any merit what so ever it was one of the nastiest personal attacks I have ever received on any of my blogs.
Personal attacks, otherwise known as flaming, I neither engage in nor allow on any of my blogs. That said I do enjoy, from time to time, spirited debates with those who disagree with me. The only time I turn off comments is when I find the conversation running in circles, going over the same arguments over and over again endlessly, like a dog chasing his tail.
One thing I never ever do is delete the comments of those who disagree with me – leaving personal attacks intact even after blocking those individuals who left them.
Always giving back as good as I get or receive.
On the other hand I am neither a dim-bulb (democrat) nor a repugnant (republican) and I will skewer on the sword of my pen; any and all intellectual perverts (left leaning socialists or right leaning conservatives) who falsely accuse me of racism or promoting the sexual abuse of women.
Feel free to disagree with me if you must…
Flirt if you feel like it…
Attack only if your a masochist who desires to feel the wrath of the photon torpedoes and phasers of my words before I block you…
