In his editorial in FSR (Vol. 40, No. 2) on the death of the
Earl of Clancarty (Brinsley le Poer Trench) in 1995, Creighton
wrote about him:

"There would be no point in attempting to deny that, despite his
great zeal and energy for our 'cause', Brinsley went on to
espouse a number of wild and absurd ideas (such as the 'Hollow
Earth and Holes at the Poles', and the exploits of the
ridiculous bogus 'Tibetan lama' Lobsang Rampa) which certainly
did us no good, and played straight into the hands of the
'Mendacious Brigade'. But de mortuis nihil nisi bonum, and
trivial matters such as these are for discussion on another
occasion."

So here we have a crank commenting on someone apparently even
crankier, and there's a lot more of that sort of thing in the
FSRs edited by Creighton.
