On the one hand I am told I write a blog that is “balanced and sensible” and am thanked for being a “sensible voice in an ever spiralling whinge storm”. This was what I was trying for.
On the other hand I’m told my comments are “patronising”. That was not my intention at all.
Everyone’s clearly read the same comments, so it seems that we’re deep in “can’t please all of the people all of the time” territory, and no mistake. So what do I do?
Well, I carry on, that’s what I do. The internet and the written word are not the most subtle and effective means of communication, but it’s what I’ve got to hand. I can’t help the fact that the inflection of voice and expressiveness of body language are lost here. All I can do is assure you that I do not intend to patronise, but to inform, debate, and learn in turn. If you don’t like that then I’m afraid that’s tough.
I will, however, refrain from posting more pictures of the Orx as they are just causing argument rather than debate. I’ll let some other poor fool take the abuse and insults for putting up pictures of new toys.
