There really isn't a final word on this, except perhaps...Stuart had the right to express his opinions on the matter (and as we live in a democracy, to express them in any WAY he choses) and people have the right to agree (as I do) or disagree with him. Anyone offended by his blunt honesty on THIS board should remember that he was "attacked" first. Personally, I've always liked his journalism and agreed with what he's had to say about the games themselves (although I STILL maintain that Kid Gloves was completely over-rated).
He's still a short-arsed Caledonian git, though. Gawd bless 'im.
