For the Avoidance of Doubt

This comment on John C. Wright’s Intercollegiate Review article, purporting to be from me, and reported on here (and since updated and corrected), was not written by me. I wrote a comment replying to it noting such, but for some reason I can’t see it (although others apparently can, so).

I did, however, write this comment, about Heinlein and Hugos, over on Metafilter.

For further avoidance of doubt, neither Mr. Wright or Elizabeth Moon’s books are on my blacklist, in no small part because I don’t keep one of those. If I did, the chance I’d announce it somewhere else than here is fairly small.

As a general rule, if you see a comment purporting to be from me out there on the Internets and plan to report on it in one way or another, it might be a good idea to ping me first, especially if it seems contentious in some way. If I did write it, I’ll confirm it. If I didn’t, well, I’ll tell you that, too.
