For example I don’t always understand some of the questions you ask or opinions you post but you sometimes make good points.
Similarly, with sergius, I’m usually curious about his opinions, but - and clearly there are others who feel the same - almost always wish he would write simpler.
(And as I’ve said here before, there’ve been more than a few occasions when I’ve read what he wrote but his prose was so needlessly convoluted that when I got to the end I still honestly had no idea what he thought of it; I can think of one example, Orpheus Descending from earlier this year, where he contradicted himself in every other sentence.)

Just as one can like certain things about a production but be frustrated by others, I think it should be allowed to be interested in someone’s thoughts but wish they expressed those thoughts differently. That’s not censorship, nor is it saying that anyone’s wrong - let alone putting one’s head in the sand to tune them out, as you suggest - it’s just a matter of personal taste.
