The Insanity Report Disclaimer
When I started blogging back in 2004 with my little blogger account, I did so because I had a lot of stuff to rant about and get off my chest. I didn’t care if I pissed people off, offended them or if they would think differently of me after writing it. What I wrote was me expressing my raw emotion anger and frustration with how this illogical world operates. When that Blogger site evolved into The Insanity Report site & podcast, I kept the same concept. I was not going to censor myself because someone’s feelings might get hurt.
Well with me getting so many followers on Twitter and an increased number of people reading the Site and listening to my podcast, I think it’s time for me to post a disclaimer. First, let me post what I tweeted out on Friday:
With all these new followers I think its time for me to do another disclaimer on what this twitter account is all about….
This account (and associated site/podcast) weren’t created to be part of some “intellectual think tank”. I’m not trying to be a scholar or politically correct
The whole basis of this online persona is to deal with all the things in the world that make me say ‘what the fuck’ in an environment separate for reality
Cause if I had to deal with this shit in real life I’d probably be killing someone
Maybe one day I’ll create a normal account and tweet poetry or some other normal every day shit, like how the cherry blossoms are beautiful
But right now, as it is, the Insanity Report is just that… a report on insanity. A place were I say all the shit others think but are afraid to let out
I’m not some smart guy or “pseudo smart” guy with a theology degree. I’m a regular guy with an unusually low tolerance for bullshit
I don’t tweet, write or say shit thinking to myself “Geez, someone might get offended by that” cause honestly, most of the times I don’t care
If it’s offensive to you, okay…that’s fine. I said it and I don’t back away from it.
I’m not going to be one of those fucks who gets behind the podium and pretends I didn’t know what I said was going to touch a nerve
I know it, I accept it and I said it. Now what? There is an ‘unfollow’ and a ‘block’ button. Feel free to use it
Cause I’m not here for followers. I love the ones I have and the interaction but id be doing this if I had 0 followers
Unlike a lot of people who bottle up their raw emotions out of fear of what others might think, I don’t have that restriction
So you can be a slave to what society tells you is the “civil” & “correct” way to think and speak, I’ll take another path
So that said. Follow at your own risk. *Kanye Shrug* *drops mic*
Now let me follow up with some other points. If you want to have a civil debate over the issues, we can do that. Who knows, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe you’ll show me facts that convert me to your point of view. It’s happened before and I’m fully capable of discussing things without cussing or yelling.
However, if you come at me in a blatant attempt to rile me up, or spewing ridiculous logic/fact devoid things, I won’t waste my time having a ‘civil discussion’ with you because obviously that’s not what you want. You don’t take a swing at someone first and then say ‘Well I just wanted to talk to you’. Come at me looking for a fight or unprepared to defend your position and I will grind you into the dirt. Because that’s obviously what you are looking for and I’m here to oblige.
Also understand that some discussions and arguments are just stupid. And if they are stupid, I plan on treating them as such. I’m not going to “respect the office of the Pope” if that office has been filed with individuals who routinely cover up and ignore pedophiles in their own ranks. That kind of idiocy doesn’t deserve my respect.
Now with anything in this world, you have a choice. I made a choice long ago to not hold my tongue on egregious violations of common sense. Maybe if I’m in my office at work or if I ever decide to run for office I’d change my tone. But right now I’m just an opinionated guy on the Internet with a website. If you don’t like that you have the choice to go somewhere else or follow someone else. But I’m not going to change my tone or how I talk. So either get used to it or head somewhere else.
