I quite admired that woman, and spoke supportively of her methods and views, hoping she would become a brilliant critic. Indeed she arguably already was, just without a base of operations.

But it wasn't not to get worked up about because it didn't after all look like she wanted any part of the critic forums.
That happens. Nothing to do with you I'm sure.

Not a bad idea really but there is no indication that was intended, and I assume by your demeanor you would prefer otherwise.
