I guess if the first Interpreter takedown of Benjamin E. Park's, Kingdom of Nauvoo: The Rise and Fall of a Religious Empire on the American Frontier was an embarrassment, you simply fire another volley.
Well, sure. They learned their lesson from the heyday of FARMS. E.g., four or five essays all devoted to slamming Grant Palmer? It's easy enough to point to that and say that all they are doing is authoring hit-pieces, and that's the whole point of their enterprise. So, they don't do that anymore. The hit pieces still keep coming, but they've learned to spread them out, and to try and "hide" them amidst the other flotsam they publish.

I have no particular insight about this, but would imagine that Wyatt now goes to bed on Thursdays with a sense of foreboding dread.

No doubt he understands perfectly well that your calling attention to the reoccurring slights assures that (a) he will never again be publicly and properly thanked by the chairman for his labor, and (b) instead of celebrating the years-unbroken Friday publication streak, the day now opens a weekend of uncertainty and doubt regarding his role and legacy.

Yes, Dr. Moore: I think you're probably right. The Interpreter Foundation really isn't a "Team Effort," when you get right down to it. I mean, sure: Amazon wouldn't be able to function without all of its thousands and thousands of employees. But who cares about anyone associated with Amazon besides Jeff Bezos? The CEO is the only one who matters. So, bearing that in mind: when the CEO singles somebody out for recognition, it really carries a lot of weight.

Some things are certain in life, such as death, taxes, and the fact that Allen Wyatt will not be mentioned in connection with the latest blog post on "Interpreter."
