Perceive it or not

From a response-to-a-response, by Sally Thomason, over at Language Log:

But one week I got two irate letters from authors whose papers I had turned down. One of them accused me of never publishing papers in generative linguistics because I was biased against generativists; the other accused me of publishing only papers by generativists because I was biased against non-generativists. It cost me some effort to suppress the urge to send each author’s letter to the other complaining author.

Heh. I’ve had days like that.  I’m looking at you, Metafilter.
