oh dear what have I done

It seems that this post from a while ago, in which I reproduced certain cartoons published by the French satirical mag Charlie Hebdo, has been found "shocking" by at least one of my French followers and blog readers, who felt that publication might place people at risk.  Whoever thought that was both wrong and risible.  But even if they had been right it still would have been OK to publish the cartoons.  Because freedom of expression  is, er, not negotiable.  Got that?  Even if, especially if, publication causes offence.

But there again you are an obnoxious and nasty woman. You deliberately put the cartoon up to provoke. Bigot.

didn't you like it then, anon 1334? you could always, you know, not read this blog if you don't like its contents, hein? have we met? do you have a personal reason for calling me "obnoxious and nasty"? Most flattering, but I wonder where it comes from. And "bigot". that's a good one. You've lost me there. Do explain. "Woman", though, I do confess to. thanks peeps for the recognition.
