Usually I see BORN FOR BANNING comments as sarcastic and satirical. Always edgy opinions that would be quite stubborn unless he intended to be ironical. I might be wrong, in this case your comment would be appropriate.
Dr. Growl, are you familiar with the French writer Louis-Ferdinand Celine?
Well, he rules my life. Journey to the End of the Night
is the ultimate book ever written, as far as I am concerned. (I share a love with others here of William S. Burroughs, but if you read the two books together, you will see Celine was a clear influence on Burroughs!)
In his writing, he is both satyrical and serious. He is serious and playful. He is emotional and logical. He breaks down these dead-empty categories and makes his narrative tie together everything at once.
So you were right, and also, you were not telling the whole story, when you said I was sardonic in that reply.
