I just got blocked again, don’t worry I’m not worried — this happens to me a lot. On this occasion I was sad to see the OP go, she’s been a genuine delight to debate with over the last few years. Historically she’s popped up the most when she feels I’ve come down unfairly against women.




A publication and penguin desperately clinging to the centre-ground and old-fashioned liberalism in the chaos of the digital age. Sometimes humor, mostly fighting.
