Perhapse Richard should adopt a new tactic.

Whenever he speaks or writes he should say something like this at the beginning:

"Now i'm going to say some things that some poeple will hear as militant or aggressive in style, while others hear it as gentle. My challenge is for those who accuse me of militancy in the following words, please quote the parts word for word which you find to be so."

It has always struck me that those making the accusations never seem to actually quote Richard. I asked my friend to do so recently after he made some comments about Richard in the recent chanel 4 series, he was unable to recall a single sentence or set of words which backed up what he was saying and i dare say this will be the case in nearly every single accuser.
