Thanks to everyone who has engaged with my most recent post. The uptake has been somewhat surprising, and largely gratifying.
However, no surprises that a few people of an opposite persuasion to mine have chosen to vent their frustration. Top (or low?) marks to the individual who compared me to Roman Polanski – i.e his point being that I am highly talented but equally despicable. Hmmm. I fear I might rate as mediocre in both depts, but thanks for the compliment anyway, Sir.
I’ve also been branded as “extreme”, “arrogant”, and “insane”. I expect readers can make up their own minds about the fairness or accuracy of such assessments.
Comments about shooting oneself in the foot are noted. I doubt I can ever be fully objective or cool headed about this topic, but I will try harder in future not to shoot from the lip.
