a nasty bit about Mish Shedlock.
It was a mistake—I fucked up.
Personally, I feel contempt at Shedlock’s condescencion to other writers, and lack of even simple courtesy towards their views. I also think he does a disservice to his readers by being so willfully blind to the facts, thereby steering them in the wrong direction.
But it was wrong of my to stick him publicly. I should have simply ignored him, as I have before, no matter how irritating and disagreeable he has been towards me.
His snide little comment on The Hourly G, and his line about how “some people don’t know how to read”, ticked me. Shedlock has also accused me of not knowing how to write, and holding positions “too stupid to debate”.
I have ignored him before—I should have ignored him again. But my bad luck, he caught me tired and in an off mood.
So please excuse me: I fucked up.
I’m sure—nay, positive—that I will fuck up again. But hopefully, it won’t be for a good long while.
