I just wanted to make it clear that my previous post was not an attack on a particular Facebook page or person, it was a comment on an online atmosphere that exists in some quarters at the moment, where people who are interested in Anne Boleyn, or publishers who produce books about her, are mocked and criticised. I feel that things have got out of hand and want to apologise to Hannah who is understandably upset at some of the comments aimed at her. It’s time to stop now as online attacks are what I was criticising and this whole situation makes a mockery of the point I was making. If I had known that my article was going to turn into an attack on one person then I would never have written it. Whatever our point of view we should be able to verbalise it without attacking anyone.
My profuse apologies go to Hannah and I hope that people can calm down and leave Hannah alone. Thank you.
