I have posted this comment on the Telegraph site:

Thank you, Mr Bayley.

We atheists hear a lot of criticism about our style and tone, so I'd just like to say a big thank you for your demonstration of the kind of UNaggressive, UNstrident, UNshrill, UNdogmatic, UNnoisy, UNugly tone that's so clearly infinitely superior to our own.

It's very helpful to have such a clear example of what you think we should be aspiring to. I just fear I and my fellow atheists will never manage to soar to such dizzy heights of reasoned, intelligent, courteous analysis, expressed with such delicacy and restraint, and such scrupulous avoidance of ad hominem. But I guess that's just strident and ugly atheism for you.
