The rest of the hour was taken up with the blackenization of . The "tactic" was laid right at the feet of . Of course was soundly criticized for the cheap tactic while at the same time tacitly admired for it's effectiveness. The whole conversation only furthered and validated the whole thing while trying to find nothing but fault with it by bewailing it's divisiveness.
