Hello and thanks for the link! Just one question - what is a 'fisk'?

Fisking Central FAQ

It was originally coined derisively with respect to Robert Fisk, but despite my fondness for the term I personally quite admire the man.

Yes, thanks, but what does it MEAN???

The Fisking Central FAQ link above does take some time to get to a decent description, I agree. Here's mine - a line-by-line/'graph-by-'graph snark attack smackdown of a piece of writing.

Your conceit of treating it as an essay assignment red-pen session was what set it apart.

BTW - your blog was discussed in great and approving detail on ABCRadio702 the other day - you're hitting a few arty nerves, obviously. Well done.
