Chris Trotter's Bowalley Road blog has gone silent.   No posts for the last four weeks.

Does anyone know the reason?    For myself, Bowalley Road and Kiwi Politico are my two must read blogs on Blogroll left.    Intelligent and thoughtful comment, devoid of personal abuse.   Some may care to take note.

Trotter has proven immune to harsh criticism from fellow Lefties, but I can't help thinking that his last article criticising the CGT in Making Tradies Pay, combined with his earlier concerns about the Greens on free speech in the aftermath of the Chch shootings, may have been too much.

He's probably the focus of some struggle session in a remote hut in the Waitakere Ranges.

I noticed he had not posted for a while yesterday but the potential significance of it did not register.

Is he still contributing to Whale Oil pay to read?

I think he is on vacation in Italy.

The (anti) social media requires a manic rate of attention. The dopamine addiction is worse than cocaine. More clicks requires more time, more anger, until pop. Perhaps he's biffed his phone and gone Walden.
