I think my favourite response is from crattyma@voicenet.com near the end:

I can't believe people go to all that trouble to try to find mistakes in a wonderful series of books. Out of morbid curiousity, I read through the list. From this reading, it is clear that at least 75% of you have no idea what you are talking about. Eddings is very keen on leaving a sense of mystery to his character's speeches as well as holes in the plot that the reader needs to fill in with their own imagination. This is a huge part of why he is so successful. In addition, the existance of the prophecies and their ability to take a hand in the events that transpire makes a great number of unlikely events possible. Lastly, get over the dryad thing, and the seeming inconsistencies of statement made by various characters. They are often indulging in the exaggerations and "white-lies" that are a normal part of human interaction. I would take on the task of correcting the majority of the listed "inconsistencies", but I have no interest in getting involved in a sad practice of taking the joy out of a series that was as satisfying as anything I have ever read.

We have a winner :D
