  1. As is so often the case, the word “criticism” seems to have been a trigger here (i.e., as the writer understands it, you “criticize the Gospel of Mark”).

    Do you think we could just go full-on troll and start calling it “mimetic hypercriticism,” “historical hypercriticism,” etc?

    1. what? and give this guy a heart attack?

      I’ve encountered the wrong reception of the word “criticize” before… makes me sad for the abuse of the English language.

  2. Mark wrote under the influence?
    Explains so much.
    Mark being under the influence is also a great argument for the short ending.
    The jokes can keep coming…

  3. Just don’t criticise the longer ending, or all the snake handlers from the deep south will be out to get you…

  4. For what it is worth Joel (and I don’t know the specifics involved or the person) but I think you should respond even if it is to thank them for the letter. Don’t engage or enrage just acknowledge the time they took. The person thinks that they are doing the right thing and it doesn’t seem to be an attack on you perse but a response to some stuff you said. Just my 2 cents.

  5. I wonder what would happen if you told him that Paul didn’t write Timothy II: Electric Boogaloo.
