I have really noticed this in my publishing career: self-effacing mea culpa blog posts are always super popular... but I routinely get vilified for (correctly) calling bullshit. (This suggests an effective strategy for blogging success: be wrong a lot, admit it a lot!)
It’s easy to win forgiveness for being wrong; being right is what gets you into real trouble.
