  • Like many rational people, I believe you take extreme care not to unfairly dismiss those who disagree with you. But “over the top abusive” comments should be judged for what they are – “ad hominem” rants directed against the person rather than the position they are maintaining. As such, I believe they usually reveal that the abuser lacks sound arguments against the position being ranted against.

  • I look forward to the Opinion page in my Chronicle Herald each week and your column is the highlight of that section. I rarely disagree with any of your well researched and incisive commentary but unfortunately I too may be classed as “yet another aging privileged white male” so I guess my support does not count for much !
