A dissatisfied reader
I received this comment on my recent article:
Considering you misspelled Berkeley twice in your article, despite the fact it was spelled correctly (by someone else) in a subsequent quote, and say preposterous things like “the answer to that question is no. It might be yes”, it might behoove you to be a little more civil in your tone throughout – you make stupid and careless mistakes too, like anyone else. I came to this article excited for a strong statistical argument and got mostly adolescent snark and vitriol beneath a “real statistician”. The fact that you get “pissed off” is human, but that you have to keep telling us about it, while ranting belligerently, is puerile and self-absorbed.
