Its the silly season

As Ordovicius himself admits in a post here it is the 'silly season'. Well after the time in Warwick I have been catching up on Welsh blogging over the last week and I found another example of the silly season here.
It seems I have changed allegiance and joined Llais Gwynedd. Must say I didn't notice and will have to update my membership!
It strikes me there is a strangely intolerant streak in some nationalist blogs who feel they can dish it out at will, but when voices are raised in criticism or opposition it gets a bit uncomfortable. Some things said by Llais Gwynedd have struck a chord, as have some things said by other political groups/parties, but that can hardly equate to switching allegiance.
I assume this outburst was prompted by welcoming Gwilym Euros to the world of blogging. Orovicius must learn blogging is a tolerant world of many different views.

Touched a raw nerve have we?

Not at all - just an observation on some strange attempt to link me to Llais Gwynedd. Given the points you have made about a regretable decline in the number of Welsh bloggers then we should welcome new ones - even Gwilym!!

Keep blogging - keep tolerant.

I'm not sure I do.
