Letter to Dr Doelman
Thank you for your explanation Dr Doelman, let me point out however 2 problems.
Problem 1) The use of goldilocks in a sentence creates a so called goldilocks word.
It is not quite annoying enough for people to stop using it and it is not quite overused enough to become a meme.
Instead its a glib phrase which astronomers use in a desperate bid to relate to the public, where clear explanations would suffice.
Let's be clear it's not a goldilocks blackhole, it's a f-off massive bl**dy blackhole and possibly the biggest in our galaxy.
Problem 2) Overuse of analogy to the point of confusion.
Why on earth compare a blackhole to a baby. I can't think of any 2 items that are less analogous (including chalk and cheese). The best that can happen is the public get the wrong idea about your profession.
Finally Dr Doelman, don't demean yourself or us by doing either of these things again.
