Are you suggesting that if Bill Swallow isn't volunteering to write an article, he has no right to criticize, then?

As an STC member, he pays to support the magazine.Even if he didn't, as a reader of a magazine,and as an active member of the field, he has the right (established by tradition) to criticize.Issuing him a challenge is simply an evasion of the issues he raises.

I realize, of course, that you are a strong advocate of the STC, but I'm sure that you can support it with a better argument than that. Anyway, the issue is not really about the STC.
