See the shock! Hear the fear! Vicariously, of course.
How could I ever have been so pusillanimous even to think of dumbing down my blog–in a vain hope that if I stuck with a sixth-grade reading level, I’d get more readers. What? Did some perverse fragment of my psyche want to be thought of as a latitudinarian?
All right, all right, you’ve made your point. Now stop showing off.
The problem here is that Big Tech is subverting Christian bloggers. They’re afraid to just ban us all outright. The pushback just might be strong enough to push them into a tar pit. But if they play with the search engines and use algorithms that shove conservative thought down to the bottom of the lists, that’s just as good as banning us.
And they ain’t doin’ that to us because they don’t like big words.
So let that sixth-grade reading level be Tokyo, and multi-syllabic words Godzilla. I’ll use the words I want to use, I’ll enjoy and share the richness of the English language, and I’ll be horsewhipped if I do any different. [Cue in Godzilla music]
Way to go, Ifukube-San!

I have an notepad filled with three pages so far with words used on Lee’s Blog that I didn’t know the meaning of, and they are not all big words. For instance, jocund, raffish, febrile, jidrool, and affiance.
“Jidrool,” a corruption of the Italian word for cucumber, is Italian-American slang for an astonishingly stupid person.
Your notepad impresses me. Did I really use all those words?
