and a deep suspicion of complexity
Now I realise why it is that someone so heartfelt, lovely, idiosyncratic and genuinely interesting as Bamnan could be hounded ruthlessly from the boards - his perspectives are isolated and victimised, and he resorts, in desperation, to counterattack. The same could be said for Cronin.
I do not want to have to tread the same path. So let's discuss what's going wrong, and how we can coexist without you folks taking every vaguely-experimental proferring of opinion (I'm road-testing half this shit ffs, and amending my opinion if nothing sticks) as a direct assault upon the moral and intellectual fabric of a fucking internet messageboard
