Yes, not in that comment. I was at a loss on how to reply to a comment that just trashed the article as "very bad" and left it at that; I'm thinking maybe I shouldn't have replied at all. But I tried to do things a little better in the next one. I failed regardless, though, so that's why I'm hoping someone can offer a new approach.
