  1. Hi Richard,

    I’m sorry to hear you found this confusing. Interestingly, I never said I would “read through” the comments or judge them to choose the winner. But, the next time around I’ll probably make an explicit reference to a random choice — although I thought that was implied.

    I didn’t take offense that you raised a criticism, but that you implied that I was acting unethically right off the bat–without hearing my side of the story first. That’s the part that seems to me uncharitable: assuming the worst about someone before finding out all the details. But, no hard feelings, and your comment brought a potential misunderstanding to my attention.

    All the best,
    Chris

  2. Hi Richard,
    Did you enter this giveaway (I don’t see your name in the comments)? I don’t believe I implied that the giveaway would be based on the “quality” of the comments. That’s why I didn’t list any criteria I would be looking for — just the name of a book (although, of course, people were free to elaborate on their book choices). Seth didn’t win because he had a blog, but because he was randomly chosen from the list of commenters. To suggest I was acting “unethically” in this regard appears premature and rather uncharitable.
    All the best,
    Chris

    • Dear Chris,

      It’s not being uncharitable if it’s true; it is misleading to state you’d ‘read through’ the comments and then later announce that the winner was ‘randomnly chosen’

      You do see how this can give a false impression?

      Note: I did not say that it was intentional, so there’s no need to take offense.

  3. It seems to me that Seth won simply because he has a blog — was there a criteria to the comments? It was implied that to win, your comment had to be reflective, and that blog admin. would “read through” the comments and choose the most persuasive one.

    To state now that the winner was “randomly chosen” is to be misleading. Ironically, you were giving away a book on ethics.
