OK, I have to say it somewhere. I wrote it as a comment on a blog posting, then deleted it. I included it as an offtopic paragraph in the final pre-Midwinter post at Walt at Random--then deleted it.
I was noting a post that said the person making the post welcomed discussion of a particular set of notions and a controversial name for that set of notions, with two exceptions: The person didn't welcome any objections to the controversial name, and the person didn't welcome key doubts about the notions.
In other words, it's a great discussion as long as it's entirely one-sided.
Glad we got that cleared up.
Anyone trying to connect the dots will be told that they're wrong, no matter how right they may be. After all, consider the title of this nonexistent post.
