Grumpy Lion is a free speech zone. Mostly. If you’ve got something intelligent to say, or just witty or funny, go ahead and say it. It would be nice if it were comprehensible, and perhaps a little graceful, but other than at least a minor degree of understandability, those aren’t required. You can even speak off topic.
However, if you are so mentally and emotionally crippled that all you have to offer is to call The Lion names and spew some idiot babble, don’t bother. Your comment would be neither interesting nor useful. And yes, I do ban the vicious and the vapidly ideological. Life’s too short to suffer jerks.
If you disagree with what I say, or don’t like what I say, fine. Say so, but at least give some intelligent counterpoint. Don’t, however, expect an extended back-and-forth, especially if you’re pushing an ideology or a religion. Round-and-rounds on ideology are pretty much a waste of time, and I prefer to leave them to the adolescents and the incredibly patient and the seriously deranged. I am none of those. A little demented, perhaps, but it’s usually temporary.
