Now that the HC/WC insult trade is in full swing, I might bow out too.
FWIW Hong Wrong seems to get a lot of unnecessary flak (more on Reddit than here), and I get really pissed off with it because most of it is unjustified.
I think the flak is mostly related to frequency & self promotion rather than the content of his missives. I enjoy reading his musings....FWIW Hong Wrong seems to get a lot of unnecessary flak (more on Reddit than here), and I get really pissed off with it because most of it is unjustified.
There's a myth that he self-promotes. He only ever does so when it is his own original content (which is quite low in frequency). Where there are other links available, he always uses them, and not ones from his blog. I too enjoy his submissions.
Your posts stand out because of frequency, debate generated and prominence. I'm not complaining (I enjoy your stuff), just trying to explain the dislike on the part of some readers...
Post a bit more here please; perhaps some of your quality posts can drown out some of the drivel that a few others originate. At least your stuff seems to come from a solid foundation instead of the fruit of boredom.
Thank you both!
