"Could this be thought rather pompus of you both? Both of you make comments that are usually interesting (aside from the occasional sneers) but there are some readers who want to discuss these issues and do not have the grasp on them that you both claim to have. "
The only thing I have to add to what I said on irc was that the author of the original article conflated a number of differing positions under a single washy heading. If this list chooses to discuss Derrida or Rorty individually I might be inclined to contribute; at present I am less than sure of what is actually meant here by post modernism. The present discussion is effectively contingent to lumping Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Sartre and Merleau Ponty under the heading 'existentialist' and assuming all four to hold identical views.
