The Grodsters vs Jeremy hostility goes bitchy in comments to a Harry Potter post by Jeremy at Pure Poison.
Grodster John Surname has a go at Green supporter Jeremy:
Is Harry Potter the new Greens, completely untouchable? I assume, being a Friday, that this was published in the Entertainment Guide. I fail to see any intellectual dishonesty in not liking a series of children’s books and films.Jeremy responds:
I suppose that’s in The Age publishing it as if it were a piece of genuine literary criticism, when it’s just a vague whinge about Harry Potter being popular.Drawing this comeback:
By all means, write a post condemning the series for actual faults. That’s what this piece implied it was going to do - and then didn’t.
“That’s what this piece implied it was going to do - and then didn’t.”To which Jeremy retorts:
No it didn’t. Right from the headline it was pretty clear about what kind of piece it was going to be. I feel your dislike of this article has more to do with the fact it takes the piss out of adult fans. Like you.
“I feel your dislike of this article has more to do with the fact it takes the piss out of adult fans. Like you.”With Surname concluding:
Thanks, John, but no - I don’t see myself in her criticism at all. Come to think of it, I do see a little bit of you in her, though.
Thanks Jeremy, your response proved my point.Funny how these lefty-spats seem to go all personal.
