Increased Breakening

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that people other than your close friends read the bilious rants that you post on the internet. I’m sure google or some similar tool brought along the cluster of ladies who were irritated when I “attacked” Circle of Seven recently. They bring a variety of arguments to bear against me – some more valid than others, and some giving genuine pause for thought. I’m not going to address them explicitly, however, because I feel that in approaching what I said about The Circle as if it were a sequence of logically conditioned arguments they’ve kind of missed the point.

This blog, as all regular readers cannot help but notice, is polemic rather than journalistic, conversational rather than scientific, and makes no pretense to either (a) approach its subjects with reasoned objectivity, or (b) have anything approaching the ability to unduly influence Circle of Seven’s market share, which I’m sure is excellent and will continue to grow. Anyone who hung out on this site for more than a few posts could hardly fail to notice that its vitriol is often more than a little tongue in cheek.

Which is not to say I secretly love Circle of Seven and what they stand for, but I do think the only way to get genuinely, deeply offended by what I said about them is to take my remarks wildly out of context. Oh, and I’m not “hiding behind this forum”, by the way – I’m Will Tattersdill, 6’3″, ginger, travelling musician, and, perhaps not insignificantly, graduate student at the university of oxford, with a current research interest in book design and marketing.
