As with all Bloggers, Ken Rockwell sometimes needs to be taken with a dose of salt, but this was amusing...

Excellent.

I can think of one person on this forum who I'd put at about 6.99 (he's mostly an artist, but has excellent self-marketing skills.

And one person on another forum who is a 1.

And I reckon there are quite a few here that know which two I'm referring to

Now, now. I seem to recall a question about the "artistic eye". Just for asking that question, you are above level one. And since you claim you're not rich, and you're not a professional, you're automatically boosted up to level 4. That's over halfway to nirvana, way to go! Feel better?

Not that forum!!!

I was thinking of the guy that (I presume) invented the term 'measurebation' (although I don't know if the 'measurbation' that Ken Rockwell refers to predates the 'e' version). It's just a marvellous word that sums up the activity perfectly.

The individual I'm thinking of presents an inimitable combination of bias, plagiarism and bad science that produces blood-pressure raising effects quite unlike anything I've seen.

I don't read the DPR forums, so I don't know if he has any peers.

Edit: actually, on reflection, 'measurbation' would seem to be an etymologically preferred spelling.
