Last week, I blogged my reservations about What Do They Know. Although I received none of the abuse from the wilder contingent of the site’s users that I was hoping for, various volunteers and friends of the site commented in a friendly, more-in-sorrow-than-anger kind of way. One of them (the Director of My Society, Tom Steinberg), threw down a classic gauntlet of ‘haven’t you got anything positive to say?’ Moreover, even I’m not paranoid or arrogant enough to interpret @FoiMonkey’s Herculean post about WDTK’s successes on the Confirm or Deny blog as a riposte to mine, but it probably serves as that nonetheless (she still missed a trick by not calling it ‘What has WDTK ever done for us?’).
I genuinely hope that some of these suggestions might help. However, if anyone would like to use the comments to pour bile and vitriol on my thoughts, please feel free.
