I said "unread". I meant it. It still is.

As the late Donald Davidson might have put it on 'most charitable 
intepretation' I was addressing the fact that if, on this list, you do not make 
your point but refer (continually) instead to your blog, you may - without 
rudeness - have your blog unread.

It would at least be polite for you to say "My basic point here is X, for 
further details please see my blog at Y." To say "please see Y" is arguably 
rude. It doesn't further discussion.

I come on this list to be challenged and usefully am (I don't always agree of 
course but I still, mostly, appreciate the challenges). It would be an insult 
if I said to other members "please see my blog because I am either unable or 
can't be be bothered to compress my points into the actually quite expansive 
and really fairly flexible 'format' [if there is such a thing] of a lit-ideas 

But you think taking issue with this suggestion is, perhaps, rude.


And yes, of course, Popper is right about everything (as if)
