Well, well, well. I decided to catch up on one of my (hopelessly behind on reading) RSS feeds tonight, and found myself confronted with a familiar name - the writer with whom I argued so fruitlessly over the last few weeks. Turns out the biggest brouhaha took place only a month before he decided to email me about it.Here
's the post that caught my eye tonight at The Rejecter
. That led me to issendai
's post here
on the same topic, which in turn led me back to the post that started it all
Frankly, I'd avoided mentioning his name or linking him because despite his insistence that it's not about the publicity, it was painfully obvious that he was after publicity. Having found this now, I've decided it doesn't matter. Reading through this January muddle made me want to do a F_W
esque skewering of his horrible grammar and misspelled words. My favorite was "egology" from this nonsense sentence: "And like blogland the wombwell is probably a weird egology.
" It reads like a bizarre cross between "ego" and "ecology" and seems oddly appropriate in the context of his refusal to acknowledge any faults in his own work.
And as long as I'm on the subject of people who can't take constructive criticism, I want to point out this
which was linked on F_W the other day
(yes, I'm reading too much F_W, but they point out some of the funniest links!)
PS - Meika, if you try what you did with Issendai's LJ, I will certainly be screening you, and possibly deleting your posts. Fair warning.
