You kids get off my lawn!
I am a boomer in retirement. The values I hold are from decades ago. I am a centrist, somewhat left of center. This is my blog, and I will write posts here both about games, and about the cultural and political environment that touches those games, other media, and general news I come into contact with. As I am neither of the extreme left, nor of the extreme right, my centrist opinions will frequently offend the people who are. There is an extremely easy way to avoid being offended: Get of my bloody lawn! You aren't forced to read what I am writing. Feel free to make your own social media channel on which you can then complain about old foggies like me holding outdated values.
I am interested in intellectual debate with people holding other opinions. I am not interested in fighting culture wars with people who come here to call my centrist views "extreme right" / "fascist" / "MAGA" and the like, or who want to insult me because of the year I was born in.
You know who you are. Get of my lawn! You have a right to free speech, but not necessarily in my comment section. Go and write elsewhere! Stop reading what I write! I am not here to provide intellectual porn to those who get off on being offended. That applies to both the extreme left and the extreme right, but honestly, which of them is more likely on a gaming blog?
