This evening on Twitter, Ontario Ombudsman Marin reacted to my analysis of his recent remarks on collections policies and practices at Hydro One and Hydro Ottawa.
Here is some of that direct and retweeted exchange in chronological order (note the time stamps are 3 hours behind EDT):

I nominate @tomadamsenergy’s blog for the Pulitzer Price for Fiction. Sure to entertain you on the Monday back to work after March break.
Tom Adams @tomadamsenergy 3:41 PM
.@Ont_Ombudsman Get over your petty ad hominem. What “Fiction” do you claim I have committed?
Ontario Ombudsman @Ont_Ombudsman 4:03 PM
You @tomadamsenergy misrepresented most of what I said to bolster ur anti public-policy @hydroone stance. Shame. Followers, ur thoughts?
Tom Adams @tomadamsenergy 4:09 PM
.@Ont_Ombudsman My review documents your direct quotes. Are you taking back any of them? @HydroOne

@Ont_Ombudsman @tomadamsenergy @HydroOne Tom Adams assumes that the bills are correct. Non payment of a fictitious bill is not delinquent.

Officer of the Ontario Legislature @Ont_Ombudsman can’t defend his promotion of bad debt, so he tries to change the subject. @HydroOne.

@Ont_Ombudsman @tomadamsenergy @HydroOne Tom seems to have misplaced some intellectual integrity. If intentional, he gets to live with it.
Ontario Ombudsman @Ont_Ombudsman 5:22 PM
It’s official. I nominate @tomadamsenergy for the Pulitzer Price for Fiction. Or maybe the “extreme” creative writing category @HydroOne
Ontario Ombudsman @Ont_Ombudsman · 5:28 PM
Hydro “consultants” r misrepresenting what I’ve said abt @HydroOne, & being RT’d by the “Mr. Butters”. Followers: should I ignore or answer?
Ontario Ombudsman @Ont_Ombudsman · 6:02 PM
Tmr I’ll answer @tomadamsenergy’s childish & misinformed blog. (Tho admired by @davebutters and butterscotch buddies)
Ontario Ombudsman @Ont_Ombudsman 6:19 PM
.@asmilingidiot And mostly factually incorrect. Propping a straw man to knock him down. Old trickster. @tomadamsenergy

@tomadamsenergy @Ont_Ombudsman Adams statement is specious and seeks 2 address the symptoms rather than the cause. Keep up the good work #OO

@ArgusTuft3 @Ont_Ombudsman @tomadamsenergy @HydroOne Tom Adams is a Canadian hero. You need to do more research.
Tom Adams @tomadamsenergy · 7:42 PM
Hey @Ont_Ombudsman, will u confirm u met with OEB Chair Leclair as part of your @hydroone investigation? What is the @OntEnergyBoard doing?
Dave Butters @davebutters 8:21 PM
@Ont_Ombudsman @tomadamsenergy puerile & undignified
