Dear "Nonny": Let me explain how commenting works here.
Once again, it appears that I have to explain -- slowly and carefully -- one of my basic rules for commenting at this site.
I don't mind commenters who disagree with me -- that's why I have a comments section that is wide open and unmoderated. I do, however, draw the line at commenters who feel the need to take exception with almost every single thing I post. That's not being constructive or informative -- it's just being contrarian and trollish, and I run out of patience with that sort of behaviour in short order.
If you have that much to say, my advice is always the same: Get your own blog. It's easy, it's free, and you can whinge on and on to your heart's content. And, lo and behold, Nonny does indeed have his own blog which, amusingly, contains all of two posts -- a small fraction of the number of comments he's already left here.
So, Nonny, it's been fun, but it's time for you to go home. Your mother's calling, and she wants you to start putting some effort into that blog of yours, and stop filling up my comments section with right-wing doofitude. And if my readers really want to know what you think, they know where to find you.
Does that work for you? Because it sure as hell works for me.
