Can you comprehend the distinction between intrusive and non-intrusive commentary? If you can, you may safely disregard the rest of this post.

Still with me? Well, boys and girls, once upon a time there was a code of conduct in the grown-up world to which most gregarious people at least paid lip-service. This code of conduct had evolved way before the creation of the Web, which now completely obviates the need for social niceties, such as not foisting one's biased views on other people who, in one way or another, are not at liberty to tell the foister to go f*ck himself.

Suppose, for example, you happen to be affiliated with a leftist hellhole, like mainstream media or academia, but happen to be one of those rare people who do not worship the ground above which Obama hovers. Suppose you have to attend one of your organization's functions, which masquerade as optional social-gatherings. There you are, part of a captive audience, as one of the big-shot assholes launches into the usual "Obama is awesome!" tirades. You have no choice but to keep your mouth shut until your mad dash to the toilet allows you to expectorate the vomit.

I make no bones here about my antipathy toward everything the Obama administration stands for (or against). But please nota bene: a blog does not comprise intrusive commentary, despite being publicly accessible. Unlike directed communication, such as telephony or email, or pontification to a captive audience, you have to enter my domain of your own free will to read my opinions. I even allow you to critique my posts on my blog, so long as I feel your own comments are worthy of my consideration.

This is my blog. If you don't like what I have to say or you don't like my rules of engagement, no one is going to force you to stay here. This is what is known as non-intrusive commentary.
