I have no context for understanding.

Liberty Dwells is a hard-right blog that Logtroll frequented when it was revealed that Golem posted there as Evening Star. Logtroll was there shaking things up and was banned, ultimately.

He's not banned here. I don't ban people for having contrary opinions.

I would have been thoroughly bummed if Reader Rant had truly been sold. I'm must be getting old and not as adaptable to change as I was once, I don't want a Reader Rant ownership change. It won't be good, probably.

Don't know. There are some folks here right now who I'm sure would be just as happy if I were no longer the guy who owns the pink slip to the the place. smile

Well, I'm just an old fart whose been around since Clinton was President. You banned me once for tangling with an admin who is long since gone but I snuck back in under and assumed name when I found out she had "left".

Only board I visit. And while the quality of political discourse in this country has gone way past Hades and shows little sign of ever getting back, this board remains well run and as consistently operated as is humanly possible. And we all know why that is true. Even those who don't like it!!

So if they, or the freakin' deer in the middle of the highway, or the realities of the world in general ever run you off, I'm outta here too.
