To the anonymous Dinarian responding to my last post,

Anonymous, I'm clear that you have no difficulty regularly reading through calculated lies and deception, dismissing them as "opinion", to find something of value. Others find it more difficult as they grasp the profound cognitive dissonance of doing so - particularly after the authors admit years of lies and manipulations. These paternalistic and condescending attitudes from those who purportedly inform us of the "new way" stand out as a blatant contradiction to the transcendent ideas and freedom-based paradigm we aspire to and hope for now.
Further, I had nothing to say about feeling shamed. I spoke of their obvious efforts of shaming their audience as a manipulative technique. Personally, my reaction was nothing like shame, nor did I read "seemingly controversial issues" - I read manipulation and lies. That was a pretty simple analysis, internally and externally with reference to their record of 100% error. Moreover, your defense of actual "sitrep" content is actually quite curious when it is precisely "lies and manipulation" which is so central to the "evil of the cabal". I have nothing positive to say about lying, thieving, power hungry people (generally, the "cabal" within dinarland), but I do point out the need for consistency.
Anonymous, do you not realize you employed the very same religious shaming technique that the "sitrep" authors employed on all of dinarland? For heaven's sake, that sounded a bit like a controlling "mod" in an agree-or-be-banned dinar chatroom. The "sitreps" do not offer advice except based on openly admitted lies. Shaming is the very point of implying "unworthiness", made even more obvious when coupled with our refusal of their admitted lies. My goodness, is that still eluding you? And no, I am utterly conscious of my finite and flawed humanity, however, I am gifted with intolerance of lies and a deep hate for the Father of Lies. Do you find a reason to reexamine your complacency for the lies regularly published by the "sitrep" authors?
I would be thrilled, as an exotic currency owner, to see a new kind of "sitrep" which dropped the lies and absurd "protection" excuses for fabricating a storyline. I'm not the only "dinarian" who likes unembellished, well written news of important events. But I think we are all up to our eyeballs and past any desire for the news outlets who masquerade spun stories as actual news or current events. Integrity and honesty please. No excuses. Otherwise, we have the same culture of lies ahead of us - only mixed in with incredible wealth and global influence. Not good.
Finally, I appreciate your remark about lowering my blood pressure. I choose to accept that as sincere. It seems you mistake passion for distress, but thanks. Indeed, I sense you are a decent person. It is in that spirit I reach back out to you with this appeal to truth. This isn't about technical word usage. We both know these people are not expressing "opinions" - they publish what they do as fact. They are persuasive about their "facts" and even offer various forms of pseudo-authenticating information. Though I dissected the post (http://inteldinarchronicles.blogspot.com/2016/10/sitrep-truth-guest-post-by-ice-cream.html) and pointed out certain details and incongruities, my appeal is strictly to honesty. It's my little part in speaking truth to those who resist it. I ask only that the "sitrep" authors make their yes mean only and simply yes, and their no just mean no. Paternalistic pretexts of "protection" to lie don't cut it any longer - the "cabal" has played that tune far too long.
Being and staying "grounded", according to Merriam-Webster, means "mentally and emotionally stable; admirably sensible, realistic, and unpretentious." Being so is not negative, contentious, or defeatist, nor is it evidence of unhealthy blood pressure - just honest.
