Pope bites back

 I sometimes get a bit grumpy when people are very quick to criticise but slow to thank or even acknowledge hints or suggestions. It is especially noticeable on Twitter, which seems to encourage brusque or even aggressive assertions. I thought I'd start a new hashtag for Pope-like squibs or comments. Alexander, I meant, not that other chap. But #Popisms was already taken, for things your Dad or Pop might say. So I had to go with the unwieldy #AlexanderPopisms. First one:

Quick to correct but to acknowledge loath;
A scholar would be happy to do both.
