The daftest comment I've read all week . . .

In the comments section of Ninglun's blog:

Talking about appeal to ignorance, it has always amazed me that so many folk who ‘teach’ creative-writing have never had any fiction published. And many of those who teach English have never had anything published in the open market at all.

It’s like someone who has never played tennis, trying to teach tennis from a book (don’t do what I do but do what I say). (Emphasis added.)

Yeah . . . and I know a few SOSE teachers who haven't invaded Poland or eroded a shoreline.
