Comments: Soap Opera II: an Open Letter to David

Unfortunately, you validate my comment by your actions.

When an obviously talented person spends so much effort eliciting sympathy, instead of helping others, it smacks of professional victimhood.

Get on with life as best you can and keep writing. You have done some memorable posts and should write more. This blog deserves better fare than this soap opera.

In other words, David, you were indeed being deliberatly insulting. Then, sir, I will get right to the point: the fact you cannot distinguish beween begging and legitimate disclosure of one's circumstances (on the off-chance it might generate some new alternative) says all I need to know about the span of your intellect, and the fact you have resorted to ad hominem attacks tells me all I wish to know about your character and values. You may belittle and jeer at will -- this is surely an open site -- but don't expect any further response from me, either to your petty malice or to any of your faux-Nietzschean pseudo-profundities.
