                 @comment 18 by katy Cordeth -  No, what I was suggesting was that if Sean's reaction, some might say overreaction, to ANTIcarrot's comment is anything to go by, he'll be eaten alive if, in about thirty years' time when Richard starts to think about beginning to consider possibly retiring, Sean inherits the mantle of go-to atheist and has to deal with people like O'Reilly and Coulter; people who have turned being hostile and insulting into an art form.Because try as I might I just can't see Richard, or for that matter the late Christopher Hitchens, responding as Sean did at no.4; even if the former was jet-lagged and the latter was in a grump.Then again, I'm starting to think that my comment may have just been in response to all the ass-kissy stuff that has me reaching for the Pepto. I don't even know anymore.> Are there any other pearls of wisdom and reason you wish to share on the Clear-Thinking Oasis?> I'm happy to do anything which might help to clear things up for any duller-witted member of this site who isn't able to distinguish between a suggestion that someone sounds like a slimy politician and an accusation that someone *is* slimy (or indeed that there's a fine line between name-calling and sarcasm); but I'm afraid it may be a case of casting pearls before swine.And don't eat yellow snow.

I say that it is good that he reacted to the negative comment by ANTIcarrot rather than act like an aloof royal who won't condescend to the fact that they bother to read what is said about them as they possess a skin of a superior quality.

Mr Faircloth probably is not too concerned personally about such malicious comments as elicited by ANTIrabbit but he has committed his life to this important cause and must defend its rationale.

He is a frequent traveler and his offer to meet ANTIrabbit in person is unlikely to be "braggadocio". He is just taking his job seriously.

So, whatever "eating yellow snow" might mean, Sean Faircloth has taken on a serious challenge and ought to receive our heartfelt support and although the sort of thoughts that katy Cordeth and ANTIrabbit share on this site could be construed as intellectually entertaining it should be remembered that there is a very grave issue at stake.

Lastly ANTIcarrot if you cannot work out what the heck happened at 9.52 in the video you should really think a bit more carefully before you pen your thoughts.
