How Come No One Has Put Mr. Ferm In His Place?|
I somehow stumbled upon this site and marveled as I read through the numerous bashings Monsieur Ferm has entertained in. I wonder, though, how come none of those which have emailed the dear sir have stood their ground. I also wonder...how come this beloved critic has come to enjoy putting so harshly down those who take the time to write him.
I began to speculate and here is what I have come up with.
1.) Perhaps this dear fellow was abused as a child, feeling too insecure about his own self that he subconsciously decided that he must, for the rest of his life, put on airs of his self-assurance and abuse others through his right of language.
2.) Even though his parents were quite kind and loving to him, poor Colin was the blacksheep, and decided to wreak havoc upon "The Little People" and anyone who dared question his logic. Of course, how could "Lord Ferm" be wrong? He is the pinnacle of the human race, and we are all but peasants for his Lordship to squash without thought.
3.) Mr. Ferm may not be human. I believe I once read about a planet which was inhabited by self-centered beings once, and he has my deepest and sincerest pity if he is among that race. The story did not end well.
Au revoir, mes amis!
P.S. If I am not mistaken, which I assure you I am not, Sir Ferm has also made quite a few blunders in his prose himself.
