Apologies To Marko.
I made a mistake by allowing David Gibbs a guest post.
At the time I thought he was a reasonable academic who deserved a right of reply, however, subsequently I have had time to reflect on my poor judgement.
I could excuse it away by saying I was rushed and I often tend to give people the benefit of the doubt in such matters. I could say I thought it would be informative to see these issues thrashed out, but that’s not good enough.
It was very poor timing, inconvenient for everyone except seemingly Professor Gibbs, and at the very least it should have been put off for another time.
In truth, I should have probably said “use someone else’s blog or create your own”. But that’s not good enough
Dr. Hoare was rightly annoyed at matters, but made a conscious effort to put all that behind him and deal with Gibbs’ arguments.
I haven’t reviewed the thread with any real attention to detail, and will probably cover its contents in a future post.
Dr. Hoare deserved better, I am very sorry for the hassle and inconvenience that I caused him.
I won’t make the same mistake twice!
