Obviously I feel that pedantry should be kept in check, I am madly pedantic about certain things, unfazed by others and I'm sure that I'm blissfully unaware of many of the mistakes I make on a regular basis (that isn't an invitation for somebody to correct this post).
I am always interested to hear Mr. Fry's views, although I fear that through this medium he tends to get a little carried away and what begins as an interesting point can degenrate into a sermon. Therefore, to finish, I would ask Mr. Fry to perhaps tone down the 'preachiness' (I hope that was 'free' enough for you) and possibly even announce the topic of his next podcast a little in advance, so as to receive some input from the listeners and even respond explicitly to some of the more interesting ones.
P.S. I have previously refrained from posting here, in fear of the wrath of the Frylings ( has anyone else noticed the similarities in sentence structure between posts here and SF's podcast?), but I hope that people will read (skim) some of what I've written and perhaps hold back for a moment before they respond with what is, while eloquent(ish), nothing but a flame.
P.P.S. What is a face to do when Stephen Fry says 'Daddy's little wiggler'? I think one half laughed as the other grimaced!
