Was it something I said? Ash Lauryn blocks this blog’s Twitter account – but not before temper tantrum about me “spreading lies” without pointing out a single one…

It’s always a nice feeling to know when you’re getting under someone’s skin. When someone is being criticised and responds with hyperbole, aggression or insults, you know you’re onto something they’d rather you didn’t know.

This was something I remembered on Friday night, when Ash Lauryn made the decision to block this blog’s Twitter account. But not, of course, before sending two tweets in my direction at eight minutes apart. I only arrived at the party after I was blocked – but thanks to these wonder things called smartphones, both tweets were waiting for me in my notifications…

Notice she failed to point out a single lie published on the blog about her. Notice, also, that she felt the need to come back with something else eight minutes later before blocking the blog’s account – somehow harbouring the impression this would stop me from responding.

I stand by my reporting. If I’m wrong, Lauryn – like anyone else who I write about – is welcome to point out errors. The fact she reacted so badly suggests to me that I’ve hit a nerve…
