I'll leave you to judge for yourselves as to whether it was deserved. Personally, I think it's ridiculous.
Things to note, for anyone who's interested:
1) I was not bashing, or flaming, or insulting.
2) I offered what I felt to be a measured, fair, and brief critique.
3) I agreed with the overall message!
Which, actually, is something of a simplified response. What I should perhaps have said is that I agree with it in certain respects.
4)Readers are ASKED TO GIVE THEIR THOUGHTS!
But hey, there we go. I'm an atheist, and therefore "just another broken record" (despite agreeing with the author on abortion), though how the author can tell when, by their own admission, they "hardly read" my comment, I don't know. Oh, and a third person waded in with the stupid assertion that I should drop a "facade" and stop bombarding the author with long words they won't read and don't care about.
Apparently these people are not familiar with the concept of literary criticism. Or the English language.
The can is totally cool, though. I can't see why it should be assumed to be anything other than cool. I was very cool. I am totally cool.
