Well, the thing is, is that unlike a lot of people here, I know Dan in REAL LIFE. He's a nice guy. I've been to his apartment several times. We've attended film music industry functions together. He came to a family BBQ I hosted at my grandmother's house. I really don't understand where this anti-Goldwasser sentiment comes from. And I'm not playing one-upmanship games or trying to score brownie points here, or anything like that. All I'm saying is that you can't make sweeping generalisations and snap judgements based on your own interpretations of his internet persona.

OK, so Dan can occasionally come across as a little terse sometimes. I'm pretty certain he knows this as well as anyone. That doesn't make him "unnecessarily and rude sarcastic". OK, so Dan has posted messages on here correcting factual information which he knows is off centre because HE KNOWS THE COMPOSER or he was AT THE SCORING SESSION about which the factual error was made. Since when has clarifying a point or making a comment about something been the same thing as arrogance or belittling?

And as far as his web journal is concerned - I fail to see what's so "disturbing" about it. Personally, I think his restaurant reviews are really useful. And it's not like Dan's some major media personality whose every move and comment needs to be scrutinised. His log, like mine, is a family and friends thing, not meant to be taken as some narcissistic self-aggrandisement tool to bolster his ego.

The bottom line is, Dan is becoming a scapegoat for a lot of people's misdirected vitriol, and I genuinely have no idea why.
