On certain days I wake up feeling especially sick and off-colour and feel particularly sensitive about comments like the following.
The author of this attacks me for using an “out-of-date” article.
If this individual (who I take to be white, male and American) who wanted to use the piece for his own blog had taken the trouble to check he would have found that the piece is only a day old. It would have taken him less time to feed the headlines ito Google than it took for him to write his diatribe.
And yet this guy wanted to use the piece for his own blog!!!
I have been working on this blog for almost SIX years without remuneration (apart from some very generous donations) often working through feelings of exhaustion and ill health.
So sometimes I make mistakes, usually, like this time, with forgetting to get the date wrong or forgetting to insert the link to the original, or faling to correct “corrections” made by the predictive text on my computer.
Do I have to point out that this is a service and a personal blog. This is not a news outlet. There is only ONE person doing this me.
The vast majority of people are willing to overlook the little mistakes that creep in.
Not this creep.
Days like this and I feel like throwing my hands up and giving up – which,in my case, also means giving up on life.
I would like to invite Robert Lowry to f...k off somewhere else on the net and do his own work
