That is probably true as well, but disappointingly he has failed to apologize to his hapless ex-moderators and other long-time contributors, whom he had impulsively banned.
Now his less-perceptive and less-informed fans are mollycoddling him, instead of pressing him to face up to the growth opportunity staring at him in his face.
To admit that he was wrong. And to apologize for his attacks on the good character and integrity of his victims.
I like to tell the story straight. The fawning and mollycoddling is for the weak-willed and those who don't know the real facts any better. But for what it's worth, I will speak up for those who have been unfairly accused, unfairly banned and unfairly maligned.
