The paper is a response to Tadeusz Ciecierski's 'Pseudo-Facts and Pseudo-Myths'. Ciecierski argues that the arguments in favor of the New Theory of Reference are sound because they (and the theory itself) concern the class of expressions that have a direct reference, and not proper names. It is argued that those arguments are implausible in such interpretation, because they take as premises some intuitions about proper names (and not about expressions that have a direct reference).
