I spent several minutes trying to find out who Clive Martin was, exactly.

I don't know who to dun, but I want them back.

I still don't know.

My best guess is he's a Vanna White knockoff-- famous for being famous-- but without the training for capable presentation she went through.

He makes some valid points. About a paragraph's worth. The Jane Austen* filler was merely an insult to the intelligence of anyone who actually reads the genre... until I realized somebody was evidently paying him for boasting about what is clearly even less of an acquaintance with the subject than Mr. Veedle had with SF before writing a story so amateurish it was improved when Jerry Lewis got hold of it.

Before it was just personal.

Now it's business.
