Bash Boing Boing day

So, I was listening to a discussion on the Google AutoLink mini-controversy and realizing what a debating jack-ass Cory Doctorow sounds like. His style seems to be interrupt and scoff. Repeat. Any good ideas are buried in hyperbole.

Then I read glassdog's ranty observation about BoingBoing draping themselves in the cloak of grass-roots as they fill every square inch of thier pages with ads and hire assistants, all the while insisting that they are only writing for friends and family.

It's nice that a hobby's paying off for them, but jeesh ... ads in the RSS feeds?!?
