Escalation of claims, or normal procedure?

Again, there is no reason to think that any of the people that Wilson listed “wished him harm.” Why is it so hard for Wilson to just accept that many people disagree with him and are vocal about their disagreement?

And if “Mary” or anyone else list Wilson as a “suspect” in some act of vandalism just because he has publicly criticized them, that would be equally irresponsible. Two wrongs do not make a right. You can’t justify your actions just because you think that your enemies would do the same thing.

Lastly, as I noted, Wilson is playing the same game on his blog — publicly accusing Metzler of something without providing any evidence to support his charge. The fact that Metzler was a former student of his makes his actions even more reprehensible.
