Anthony has again hurled another insult:
Watts has moved from calling me an idiot to labeling my ideas idiotic, a move designed to shelter WUWT from legal action. One could consider that a small improvement.
However, that is insufficient.
Anthony, I will state the following for the record: I unreservedly apologise for the charge made and have done so already. It has been withdrawn, and your comments allowed on WtD.
In return I expect the gracious acknowledgement of this; a public apology for the defamatory insults directed at me by you and posters at your blog; their withdrawal.
I also request future references to this episode to cease, as your record and those of (some) of your followers does not reflect well.
I will continue to be critical of the ideas and the information presented on WUWT were debate warrants this.
Where I believe you or a guest poster is in error I will call attention to that.
As many others (on both sides of the debate) have suggested, prominent voices in the climate debate need to assume the role of leaders.
I may not have the volume of visits of sites such as WUWT have, but that does not matter.
Therefore Mr. Watts I will lead if you cannot: I will take that leadership role.
The choice is now yours.
It is time to move on from this event, which I am now doing. It has been far too distracting.
