Compassionate leftism 

Thanks for all the comments and well wishes at the post below. I'm feeling somewhat better today - there doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to these things, and the longer it goes for, fortunately, the weaker and less frequent it gets.

I was amused, though, to find this comment:
"Chronic fatigue syndrome is an imaginary illness losers use to excuse their apathy and to seek attention and empathy from others. I'm not surprised that it's found amongst many rightists, because they are lazy and lack moral fibre."
It was kindly left in the comments sections by someone with an unimaginative name of Noel Chrotsky (I always knew that if you'd cross Noam Chomsky and Leon Trotsky you would end up with something, well, truly horrible), who runs an apparently new blog called Dissecting Rightism.

Personally, I think it's all a big practical joke, as Dissecting Rightism is a mirror image of a well established blog Dissecting Leftism, run by one of the warhorses of Australian blogdom, Dr John Ray. Either way, I'm much amused, and as they say "laughter is the best medicine."
