Prick and Prejudice

What's Ken Avidor doth protesting about in his recent post, "Chilling - British Company Goes After American Blogger (Me)"?

Editor's note: We continue beta-testing the change to one of the oldest editorial policies of "PRT is a Joke" IS A JOKE. For a limited time, The Name of the Minnesota anti-PRT propagandist will be shown -- although special formatting will be used.

Here's what he wrote:
The British company Advanced Transport Systems Ltd. ...posted a page on their website complaining about "anti-PRT bloggers".
The page ends with this chilling observation:
As a private-sector company, it is startling for ATS ULTra to view the immense quantity of PRT blogosphere debate. For PRT systems that will receive public-sector funding, an active blogosphere should serve a fiduciary role. However, given the less-than-civil nature of chat, it is difficult to characterize the current debate as "healthy."

Let me get this straight: this entity, this Ken Avidor, has spent years (1) misportraying the ULTra technology, (2) fabricating crises to make the company appear to be failing, (3) denied the existence of its flagship project, (4) tried character assassination on a company officer, (5) and blatantly lied about the vehicle

-- and then when the company, finally, responds to him by name, he goes all Jane Austen on us? "Oh Mr. Bennet, we are all in an uproar!"

Give us a break, Ken.
