For some reason this remark, which I intended to describe the tone of the
Quidditch World Cup as a careless and rather nasty other-side-is-Bad setpiece,
was taken to heart by Ven.
+ Lazy rabble rousing eh? Am I being touchy or do you mean me?
You're being touchy, Ven. I meant Rowling. Your recent post and perspective
bear no resemblance to the backsliding in Rowling. Post-match violence against
muggles, bah. You and JOdel were both insightful and put your points well.
+ Sorry if I gave the impression I still think exactly the way I did
+ twenty years ago, I am, naturally past all that now.
I don't care for Billy Bunter, either, but I rather like Dr Doolittle.
