It's five months since Gamescom, and yes there has been that length of time between blogs before. In fact the most frequent blogging was done at the start, when the first three came out in just under a month. I also think it is possible that blogs won't necessarily carry on right until the end; their purpose has not been to reach the wider gaming community, otherwise they would have been posted somewhere other than just this forum.
If you want a reason for the long time since the last proper news, why not reflect on what we know- Lust told us he had been busy working on the update (Invasion mode for Warband) and that was why he hadn't had time to work on a new blog. We also know that he was busy post Gamescom with the Warband console release. Whereas I wouldn't have expected a new blog so soon anyway (going on the history of Bannerlord blogs), if one wants facts to cite as a reason for not having had a blog for ages, those two issues are the best candidates I know of.

No, but I do get annoyed when I see hyperbole and inaccuracies repeatedly posted in a tone that suggests they are facts. Or should I show solidarity with my fellow consumers, even when they are being unreasonable? Such a tone as Drakken's and his hyperbole appeals to any cynical gamer who has witnessed or even heard of developers missing release dates, and so many people eagerly and unquestioningly accept it as fact and join the bandwagon. Who cares how heavily it is based in fact, we are all having a good time whinging about a developer, right?
If there is a valid complaint being made, fine, even if it is heavily sarcastic in tone- but it is undermined in the eyes of those familiar with events- we long term forumites- by churlish exaggeration, and for newcomers it is plain misleading. Drakken's post really gives the newcomer the impression that multiple release dates have come and gone, and they haven't; one very broad "goal" has been missed, that is all. Who would read Drakken's talk of traditional release date announcements and imagine it meant that Lust said their goal was to get the game in our hands during 2016?
