Confidential to my friends at TAPPED

You guys know I love the site. And we’re both part of the TAP family, so I say this as a brother, or at least an older and wiser distant cousin: Unless you’re signalling an imminent Hitchens-like ideological conversion and will soon be throwing your lot in with the smug warbloggers, you probably want to avoid the neat-o secret treehouse words like “fisking.”

And for god’s sake, don’t start talking about “anti-idiotarians.”

Just my two cents.
