No comments so far, so I thought I'd just say that I agree with this. The neglect of this cluster of phenomena is staggering in relation to its importance.

I was really depressed by both the ferocity and the self-congratulatory gleefulness of the attack on Pinker on Crooked Timber, which has traditionally been my favourite blogs. It was something viscerally repellent, really. I tried to write a comment there, but was in the end too depressed to do even that. That your attitude to him is different is itself a breath of really fresh air. Another reason for this nearly content-free comment is that I wanted to thank you for expressing that attitude aloud, if only in passing.
