The actual text of a letter to Professor Harry G. Frankfurt, Author of On Bullshit

Dear Professor Hamburg:

As a philosophical exercise, I most certainly have not decided to write a blog containing nothing but bullshit and lies. In reality, I believe you would classify me as a bullshitter and a purveyor of truths, as my motivation is certainly to tell naught but The Cold Hard Facts, and I am very careful to do just that. Even so, the matter isn't in your field of expertise and I really don't care if you would humor me by writing a post, assuming you are very busy.

The blog's address is http://ElvisRocks.blogspot.com, and as of now, it has countless post. But this letter will not be posted, after verifying all the facts, of course. I don't intend to post anything else.

Don't bother to respond,
Edgar Greenberg

Hopefully he won't respond. And if he does, I won't post it here.

This whole reverse psychology/Yoda speak is getting hard to read!

No, I can see you're right. I can easily understand what I post. This comment, for example, is crystal clear. Only solution is to post something already true, thus aggrivating the problem of the double speak.
