I'm So Proud of Myself....
Backstory: Armand, the Arch-linker from Argentina, had put a link to my last book review. My only involvement in the thread was to thank Armand for the link. That's all I thought was going to come of the post, besides sending a few visits to the blog my way.
How wrong I was! It has turned into a curmudgeonly conflict between supporters of Boney and supporters of Old Nosey. I was going to dip my oar in at one stage to reiterate some of the author's main points, because it seems obvious to me neither of the main combatants have read the book (let alone my review!), but never got round to it. Now it's gone beyond a reasonable or sensible disagreement into the realms of online duel! I'm keeping my head below the parapet on this one, but enjoying the spectacle of (mainly) two people blowing intellectual raspberries at each other, neither giving in to the other's point of view. If you'd like to poke the bear with a stick, feel free to contribute to the debate, but I'm staying well away from this one! I have made a vow never to venture an opinion on TMP, as you are more than likely to start a festival of bitch-slapping like this!
