Who can it be now?

" ... complains that I classify him as one of the less thoughtful readers here."


" ... does not explain how, or where, or in what I was so obviously mistaken. Nor does he demonstrate by his arguments that he possesses any expertise of his own in this subject."

Could it be:

"You can come to me, and quite happily make any assertion you want, so long as there's at least a small shred of fact or logic to back it up."

Clue here.

tut, tut, doesn't Hitchens know that B&D are the 'Gods of Writing' and no-one even comes close. Hitchens needs re-educating.

He, thought you'd get round to seeing that.

I am very responsive though, you have to give me that, surely?

I did post a response to that piece yesterday but it doesn't seem to have made it to his site.

I often read B&D (and your blog) and I have to say I'm getting really fed up with Demetriou's behaviour. Boatang's staying cool, but JD has been pointlessly annoying people and I'm at a loss to understand why. Why is he driving away valuable contributors (Mr Rob), starting fights with Obo, wanking about on Twitter, winding up Hitchens?

If you're going to start a fight, it had better be for a good reason, and that's exactly the problem. JD starts and escalates these battles, and yet there's no point. Nobody learns anything, nothing good is achieved, and it becomes harder to have a sensible discussion in the future.

This is intended as friendly advice. If real-life issues are the problem then I have every sympathy, but JD really needs to keep them offline and just not post for a bit. Either that or go all emo Livejournal and tell us about it! :)

To the cunt who keeps posting under my name.

Stop posting under my name, you cunt. It's identity theft, it's fraud, it's being a cunt. You cunt.

I don't want to admit it, but Peter Hitchens's reply was brilliant. I've had my arse kicked. The fake Demetriou hasn't got enough guts to admit that.
