#1 "Badanov". My apologies to Besoeker for not being on this "forum" yesterday to respond to the usual cretin admonitions put forth towards Besoeker, a common event towards the most conservative contributers of comments at bloodyburg. "Approbation" rode out of Dodge City a while back? Tan pequeño! :) Adios, Gabacho!
#2 Thank you, wr dear. This is not a "Conservative" blog but a war blog, and so our priorities are other than yours. As you have repeatedly pointed out, this makes you unhappy, for which we are not the least bit sorry, I'm afraid, because there are plenty of Conservative blogs around to fill that need. Even so, it must be pointed out that it costs absolutely nothing but a bit of time and effort to do your own blog on Blogger or one of the other such services, and if you would only comment consistently over your own nym with the website URL written in the box Fred so nicely provided, perhaps some people would follow you home to see what it is you consider important.
Besoeker, on the other hand, seems generally agreeable to the moderators' choice of which of his many submissions we publish, and in fact is one of our more energetic submitters. He was not arguing the rejection so much as seeking guidance for future efforts, if one reads the exchange carefully. It's just that he and badanov communicate more directly and forcefully than my own gentler tones, which I suppose can be a bit startling to those more accustomed to the drawing room...
Rantburg is a group project, which means there will occasionally be disagreements on detail, though agreement on principle, we being members ofHomo sap. instead of ants or mole rats.

No apology necessary. I'm admittedly a fairly opinionated old snik and as such, raspy treatment sort of comes with the territory. No blood lost, no worries. The position of Moderator deserves respect. As in my former duties, a respect I endeavor to uphold. Interesting to note, yesterday's deleted post and dialogue drew some 430 curious viewers. Hopefully some of them found the tip jar.

#7 You will find wr's three blogs starting here
Interesting sites, Thosing the Slender1294, and each very different from the others. Thank you! wr, if those are indeed yours, you are losing an opportunity by not attaching those links to your nym.
