      Sorry about that; last time I offered an opinion on a link I was
      posting I got lambasted for it, so I thought I'd give this one as
      neutrally as possible.

      In fact I completely disagree with the cartoonist's rants; I
      simply thought the middle one (Blimey!) was funny. They're the sort
      of things one can only say out of complete ignorance of the material
      being condemned, sight unseen.

      Some of us have been seeing it for more than thirty years, since
      those original sneering reviews of THE SILMARILLION back in 1977.
      It's a cliche with a life on its own, immutable by the facts.
