After careful consideration I have removed the posts that some of you kindly commented upon. Not because I regret posting them, nor retract what they expressed. I was grateful for considered responses. My reasons are more to do with a feeling that anything that stokes antipathy, or gives any cause for others to do so, involves a kind of ugliness at this point in time.
I felt the need to respond in some way, and that was done. Having expressed my impatience with empty rhetoric in the absence of resolve, (and I stand by all of that) the need for it to remain as permanent ’emotional graffiti’ is questionable.
I sincerely hope my followers will understand. I was asking for discerning ‘intolerance’ and not revenge but this distinction is seemingly not easily understood.
