Todd Cochrane will pay $100 for Movable Type tag support in external editors.
I would say “declined to comment” instead of refused. Sounds so much more dignified.

Dave, Jessica is a great reporter, has enough integrity in one fingernail for the whole profession. I know because I have worked with her. You should comment. We’re not all one big monolith.

PPS I respect your right not to comment, maybe consider it though.

“Declined” to comment is more than just “more dignified.” It’s more gracious. It sounds like you politely declining to accept a second helping of desert rather than rudely rejecting an advance. It has the air of “Thanks, but no thanks.”
