Heidi MacDonald has answered her critics and defended her opinions over at the blog she didn't delete.
And while I still wish she had chosen her words more carefully, I will definitely cop to doing something which always annoys me when others do it: sounding off without having read the full article in question, and therefore reacting to quotes and statements taken out of context. There's no justification for doing it and for this I think I should apologize.
Maybe it was because I was at work that day...kinda adds to the old blood pressure, y'know.
OK- this is all I'll say about it, and I plan to move on and hold no grudges. Like I'm sure she was losing a lot of sleep over it anyway.
