More blatant rubbish - Brandon can't take criticism, and tries to spread the
burden by pretending that his critics are nasty, vicious offenders. This is
plainly untrue - Leo, Tony Ingram and I patently do not attack people
haphazardly or from vapid conceit. We do not, for instance, like Brandon
himself, demand from wounded conceit that distinguished editors should move
aside because of ill-health when really meaning because they don't pander to
us; and we don't dismiss whole issues of NEHGR as being "of little interest"
just because our own needs and prejudices are not the editor's main purpose
And we don't constantly post high-camp twitterings and transparently gay
sniping, again like Brandon trying desperately to feminise male posters who
cross him in any way.
