Taking criticism

I have stated before that a person who hands out criticism must be prepared to take it. To this end I publish in full all comments sent to this blog..  I do not publish comments received on Twitter etc.

Recently I was described as being an 'armchair/keyboard activist', and I am of course.  However, I can lay claim to being active in the community.  Reluctantly I am publishing a  list of activities I have engaged in  to counter the criticism I have received.  I shall not publish this post on Twitter, Facebook or Google+ .
