The "sons" who wrote the "Manes" were nearly all "young" scholars through whom Bacon hoped to hand on the lamp to the next generation, and so to posterity.
This atmosphere of secrecy makes the whole of the "Manes Verulamiani" a veritable whispering gallery, where, one feels, Fame has her trumpet to her lips and would fain sound a fanfare and announce a name, but is held back from making any proclamation by a conspiracy of silence.

 Infothought: Stephen Manes vs Lawrence Lessig
Manes is. For a guy who feels no hesitation in calling someone a "moron," "idiot," and "buffoon," it's a bit surprising he'd find this as "blustering and bloviating" or filled with "rage." Once again, his colorful abuse while funny, if a bit overworked, is still wrong.")
Note, in terms of journalistic levels, Lessig *does not* have to settle for being told to post his rebuttals as an obscure comment in a noise-filled forum, or on a website nobody reads.
But anyone less informed was completely snowed, the point-for-point and look-at-me posturing obscured the real issues, and consequently, Manes won the exchange.
