I have often have this discussion with friends. Usually Dorkass, this time Minette.
Her: Man is that [blog] story riddled with inaccuracy!
Me: Do feel free to write a rebuttal.
Me: Yeah, that's usually where the whining stops.
Her: Would you post it?
Me: Absolutely. Longstanding policy.
Her: Without editing or annotating?
Me: I might comment afterward, but your post will go unedited.
And with a realization that I'm poised to pants them far, far worse, this is where friends' outrage usually ends. Stay tuned.
