No Sense of Humour?
I think Dan Jones must have got out of bed on the wrong side the other day. In this article he accuses Ricardians, among other things, of having no sense of humour.
This very site, where humorous pieces appear on a regular basis, including some on himself (eg here), rebuts his argument, and I am sure that plenty of supporting evidence can be supplied. If he had described Ricardians as a typically-English bunch of eccentrics he might have been a little closer to the truth; though of course even that would not cover the many Ricardians who are not English, and in some cases do not even have English as their native tongue.
I rather think it is the ‘Ten Foot Deepers’ who lack humour, as they are evidently capable of reading More’s unlikely (and possibly deliberately satirical) account of Richard’s reign without collapsing into laughter. Indeed, anyone who takes that ‘source’ seriously has obviously had a complete sense of humour by-pass.
Their sincerely-held naivety is in fact rather touching. Perhaps they also believe that an elephant pushes the sun up a hill each morning.
