Fighting Talk Threatens Not to Sue Fictional Monkey

Hopefully, regular readers will be aware that I'm generally quite nice. In fact, most of you have probably met me.

And I like to think I'm reasonable skilled at noticing when two people are talking at crossed purposes,

I guess some folks just weren't meant to get along.

Shortly after my 'defense' of Matt, Sir Humphrey's's Antarctic Lemur noted my response (so far PC has not deigned to acknowledge our continued existence). And told everyone what his Statcounter log said I'd done while I visited their site.

The Humphries have, on average, been fairly reasonable and, as I scoured their writings for references to myself, I have occasionally read stuff I agree with.

At least there's not much risk of me discovering they're some kind of relative, what with the pseudonyms and everything.
