I’d like to thank Bernard Keane for his thoughtful criticism in Crikey. It provided fresh contrast to the sub-literate and humourless bleats of conspiracists, et al that I have heard. Amen.

First, I’m not sure why Keane insists that critics of bloggers see them in pyjamas. I've never imagined bloggers in anything but an old pair of brown corduroys and a faded Morrissey T-shirt.
