When you criticize someone with followers, the followers recognize that, if you are correct, they have been sucked in. If they had been sucked in, then they must not be too bright, or at least they were not well enough informed to form a critical judgment which would have led them to identify their leader as someone not worth following. So, a criticism of the leader produces a particular response in the followers. They feel that there has been an attack on them personally. The critic is saying, loud and clear, that anyone who has followed this particular leader is not a good judge of character, intellect, or facts. They are quite correct. This is exactly what the critic is saying.”

So, if I could translate the above quote, and apply it to this particular blog (and blogger) if you will, then that would include all:
Oh yes, I said ‘two’:
Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.
And one last one:
Never explain: Your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe you anyhow.
