Comment: 	Re: SHK 17.0966 Funeral Elegy/ Shakespeare Wars

Speaking as someone quite outside the academic establishment, I have 
been rather disturbed by the venom and spite displayed over the whole 
"Funeral Elegy" affair. It is understandable, of course, that Oxfordians 
fought the Shakespearean attribution, even, to some degree, that an 
anti-anti-Stratfordian lost in the fog of war might, in reaction, be 
maintaining the Elegy to be Shakespeare's own down to this day (as at 
least one has), but the sheer personal hatred toward Don Foster that I 
have seen displayed by some academics is a puzzle to me.

Take it for what it's worth.
