Got it ?
Hear hear. Wasn't so hard to decipher Ian's post now, was it? Yet people's judgement is clouded by their strong dislike for the man. You may not like someone, but that doesn't mean you jump on him at every opportunity you get, refusing to acknowledge his messages for what they are and in turn making yourself look bad.
Any public figure who maintains a social presence like Ian does is subject to scrutiny and criticism, sometimes deservedly, but he didn't deserve it this time.
