In one and the same day I have been irritated beyond measure by (a) twitter, which increasingly seems to be a forum existing mainly so that smug celebs, -and wannabees- can start bandwagons for people to fall over themselves to jump on without bothering to stop and think in the process - the fact my own knee-jerk sentiments may sometimes be with the resulting mob doesn't make it better - and (b) epic length tedious essays on email lists - which would still be tedious even if they weren't tendentious. Which in this particular case they are.

The internet was a bad idea and must be stopped.

But of whom could you be speaking? I'm about to wade in. See you on the other side.

You are Eeyore and I claim my five pounds. Ignore the celebs on Twitter, there's not enough sanity points in the universe to cope with them. And yes, Mr M on List is dull as ditchwater and both misinformed and horribly opinionated. Thank god AC hasn't thrown his hat in. Although knowing him, it won't be long before he does.

I considered earlier today adding him to the William killfile, but didn't quite go that far. I'll likely hit mute soon on that thread.

you (and others) are doing a sterling job. I haven't the patience or, frankly, the sanity to Fisk him properly.

You only say that because you haven’t adopted a Kantian approach to quantum mechanics!
