la la la another one of these… time to pile on!
murray: please don’t “retract your post” as some are calling on you to do. this is such a ridiculous concept. you said what you said because it’s exactly what you meant to say. publishing a retraction won’t change that.
clearly some people agree with your statements and some disagree. this is an issue of personal opinion. your blog is obviously your opinion. the only thing i wish is that you were a little thicker on actual substantiation behind your claims and a little bit lighter on inflammatory language. perhaps something to keep in mind for next time.
there are a couple of things i really hate. one of them is people who persistently pretend to have a different level of skill than they really do (this goes in both directions). the other is people who talk trash behind someone’s back and act all friendly to their face. if someone has a problem with someone else, i think that they should make that person aware of it.
screaming it from the rooftops may or may not be the appropriate method to do so.
clarification: the “people who persistently pretend to have a different level of skill than they really do” comment has absolutely nothing to with the current goings on. i list it here only because, it is literally one of my two least favourite things.
