From the CC HQ mailbox this morning, from someone who prefers to remain anonymous:
You sir, are rude, crude and disgusting.
Your language is vile. Your attitude towards people is shockingly bad, piling up rudeness and denigration, then rolling in it as celebration.
Quite so. But beneath all that, the letter writer still has a firm grip on reality:
What you are not is WRONG. Yes errors do happen, but they are corrected effectively as soon as possible. The blog you produce is not WRONG, though.
Where you call some-one on the facts [using the vile language you do], you have evidence, straight-line logic or alternative statements by that person which disprove their position. In each and every case I can recall, you are not WRONG. That is why I read the blog.
What your detractors fail to account for, each and every time, is this fact. The demonstrable lack of wrongness means that they can only complain about style. For those who prefer rude reality to polite fantasy, the choice is clear. Either the critics can get better on the facts, or they can remain in their faith-based fantasy.
Thank you, thank you very much. I'm here until Thursday. Try the veal.
