Responding to Critics.

Nope, I am not responding to a critic or criticism.

I am talking about the common attitdue some people get when a criticism is answered and I am seeing a lot lately.

Imagine a situation where Joe Sixpack says "Your aardvark wears ballet slippers." You respond, "My aardvark does not wear ballet slippers!" Joe Sixpack then retorts: "Ahhh, it must tbe true because you are responding to the charge."

Sorry folks. Repsonse to a criticism or a charge in and of itself says nothing about the validity of the charge. Do not do that lest ye be considered silly.
