MORE observant visitors to this site will have noticed I’ve been updating the content and design of my blogroll. At the risk of it becoming too long and unwieldy, I’ve today added Scottish Unionist, a blog I’ve found myself popping in on quite a lot recently. Impressively, he’s doing a fine job in exposing the insane rants of the famed “cyber-gnats” with an illuminating post yesterday.
I tried this myself when I started this blog, with a series of posts entitled “The Language of the New Scotland”. I gave up, though, because it was just too depressing to have to go into The Herald site to read the latest weird, racist, homophobic, misogynist, paranoid delusions of people who, I’m convinced, are posting in the wee small hours because they have to wait for their mums to go to bed before they can use the computer.
SNP politicians, whose party these strange individuals support, do nothing to condemn or criticise the cyber-gnats, so it’s up to people like Scottish Unionist to do so. But beware: exposing yourself to any amount of the putrid vitriol spouted by our nationalist friends can badly damage your emotional health.
