Freeman Dyson is so rude! :-D
He sounds like he is straight out of the Big Bang Theory.

"I have this unfortunate habit of answering email immediately, which is in the long run not sustainable. So I will answer this one and then remain silent for three days"

I could see his point - if you bounce answers back straight away then you end up spending an inordinate amount of time on one conversation to the detriment of others. It's like answering the phone while you're talking to someone. The whole point of email is that you can deal with it at leisure.

And the journalist deserved it, anyway, begging the question like that. "Given that I'm right, why do you keep saying I might not be? I know other people have been generally agreed to be right and still turned out to be wrong, but in this case there's a general agreement, so it's entirely different". If you want someone's opinion, at least let them give it rather than presenting your own and insisting they agree with it.

That's my job ;-)

Hey, I didn't say being rude was bad! I just thought it was funny.
