Professor Mark Williams has gone rather quiet on bitcoin .. I wonder why ?

Following my last blog post on Professor Mark Williams ( the well-known FED apologist and ‘bitcoin basher’ )
I had a subsequent series of email correspondences with Mr Williams. At this time I wont be revealing the contents of our exchanges, but it was very enlightening on a number of grounds. In brief, I asked Mr Williams a number of points for him to clarify, and lets just say his answers were “guarded and cloaked in legalese” . When asked for specific responses to straight questions, he just re-quoted his earlier carefully worded answers, and refused to elaborate further … hmmmm
As we all know, Professor Williams has staked his reputation on his prediction that bitcoin will trade for $10 or less by 30th June 2014. … Well that’s now only 40 days away ! .. and when I looked just now the bitcoin price was trading at $498
Just so Mr Williams can keep track of the days as they approach his prediction deadline, The Rat has set up a Countdown Clock on this site below
Now, Mark Williams is clearly not unintelligent, head-strong maybe, arrogant maybe, and beholden to JPMorgan maybe ? .. but he has obviously recognised that staking his reputation on being able to ‘talk down’ bitcoin , was clearly a big mistake !
As I pointed out in my last posting on Williams own bloging habits, up until December 2013 he was bloging at around 5 articles a month – and didnt write on bitcoin until the 5th December. But from then on, until march this year he was posting around 25 articles a month on his Boston University Blog , all critical of bitcoin.
However, since the 10th April .. thats nearly six weeks .. he has only writen four posts .. and only one on bitcoin !
could this be the time for FORTY DAYS in the wilderness for Professor Williams ?
you might also notice that Mark Williams has disabled comments on his blog – unlike The Rat
Free Speech ? .. apparently not in ‘bitcoin bashers land’
