Harry,
Having positive memories  of you from the period (68-70) when we were  both
at Rockefeller University I was pleased to see the article about your book
in the NY Times, but  having read it online, I must say I could only agree
with your own  dissatisfaction expressed in the Times article. Your
publisher has a  lot of nerve trying to sell it as a book. As to your
request below, it  would seem to me the title of your work, which may be
copyrighted and  so not repeatable here, would nicely describe it.
Best,
Michael

Dear Ms. Gilbert,

Your allegation is mistaken, our site never published
On Bullshit, but merely pointed to a web site where is
could be read.

We have seen a number of your shotgun allegations fired
at various innocents and noted the adverse effect they are20
having on the reputations of Princeton University Press
Mr. Frankfurt.

If Princeton University Press is above contrition due to
DMCA obsession, it would ease the damage you have20
done to Mr. Frankfurt's now tarnished reputation if you20
would reissue all your blundering messages with an20
apology, as Mr. Frankfurt has done in one instance after20
he learned of your demonstrating the point of his essay.
