Sorry Ms Plum, I want more of that 'nonsense'
I had just flown from Kathmandu to Dubai and my connecting flight to Auckland would have a stop in Kuala Lumpur. Not the shortest trajectory but quite similar to the social media maze I had to navigate to get to this piece. Someone on Facebook had shared a Spinoff article which had a link to a Twitter thread, which had an image of a newspaper cutting of this article in the Otago Daily Times. The Twitter thread belonged to the radio journalist this columnist was taking a shot at, and the piece had reached her after going through a few transit stops in its own right.
I downloaded the image and saved it for easier reading while I waited to board my flight and envied those who had access to the business class lounge. The column was yet another person complaining about the use of te reo Māori on air, except it hadn't been written in caps lock like your ordinary keyboard warrior post. The punctuation was spot on and there was even some attempted humour, all indication that it was written by someone with a platform and penmanship (I found some forum threads where other people, presumably of the same age group, gushed about how smart his humour was.)
