Lectures And What One Learns

Recently, I've had the experience of being lectured-by-blogpost.  It's interesting.  The blog-lecturer in question is a Famous Fellow in some quarters.

The business at hand involves a set of "rules", some of which are hard-and-fast, others of which are subject to reasonable debate.  Sadly, one of us isn't following the "hard-and-fast" rules (that is, the ones which are written and very explicit.)  Not on my side of the ledger, mind you. 

The debatable ones?  Well, rather than actually have the discussion, there are blog-posts.

Ralph Waldo Emerson had something to say about this sort of thing:

The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons.
