Oh, good grief. Not another Shermer "open letter". Good luck, Mike, after all your "Rational Atheism" open letter was a great success (they still debate about how much of an "accomodationist" you are - though you're business savvy enough to know when to play nice).

Oh, ok"
You make my point for me.


Can you really be that anal? Yes, they can easily see who wrote your statement by looking up the time stamped location, but the comment is attributed to an entity, not you. If I were to do that on purpose (knowing it is not a statement from rd.net - not in the point making way I intend here), it would be inappropriate, if not completely stupid (especially in this case given that it's obviously a blog independently written by Reba).

You moron. It is you making a big deal out of something to which I am correct, it is only being respectful to Reba, you jerk. Now go find a safe place to play.

Edit to vent: Now that you seemed to get me thinking about this again. The "fix" is still inadequate, and who did it still "doesn't get it". At the least the incredible move of putting a link not to her blog being placed above her words has been corrected (it was Richard's video). Although I doubt Reba could give a crap about this, there's an incredible ego problem with the way the piece was originally put up.

It bothers me that this is not properly attributed to the author and is instead put up as appearing like a statement from CFI. Very inappropriate.

Reba Wooden is capable of speaking on her own behalf as part of the bloggers (which is exactly what she does), and be recognized for that fact.
