Readers Note: For background to the email to KC Johnson which follows, please read my KC Johnson Now and KC's Durham-in-Wonderland post here.
I promised to be back to you regarding criticisms you’ve made of me and my blogging.
Let’s start with your June 30 Durham-in-Wonderland post which included this:
[T]he blogger who posts under the pseudonym "John in Carolina" slimed me by claiming that I had "banned" a commenter.I take it you were referring to what I said in KC Johnson Now:
I think DIW lost something important when KC barred Joan Foster, one of the people who's been most effective from the first in the fight for DL justice. All Joan did was to civilly and persausively disagree with KC over his ridicule of Prejean.After a look at all the related material I can find, I can see that you never said you'd banned Joan.
If I’d have checked first with you and Joan, I know you both would have told me that.
I’m sorry I didn’t do that.
As for whether my saying you’d banned Joan was a slime, people can judge that for themselves.
The hour is late. I’ll say more soon.
