Phil Jones interviewed

Playing for public sympathy (I'm just a simple scientist) the poor lamb tells us he considered committing suicide.

He gets a very rough ride in the comments. Several make this point: "Anyone tempted to feel sorry for Jones should bear in mind what he wrote when the skeptic John Daly died: 'In an odd way, this is cheering news!'". This one too betrays a certain lack of sympathy: "In this era of 'victimhood', another perpetrator seeks to pass himself off as a victim."

I guess our Phil won't be rushing to repeat this experience.
