The partial truth in Emotivism

I had a disappointing experience yesterday in that I discovered a very interesting discussion thread on Emotivism in a blog authored by Jon Baron at the University of Pennsylvania, but responding was disabled. Furthermore, the site didn't tell me that responding was disabled until after I composed a wonderful reply to his blog entry. Not content to do nothing with this reply, I'm placing it here, below the cut. It will make little sense, though, unless you first read Baron's blog entry. You needn't link to his site; I've posted his entry below the cut, followed by my response.
