    UPDATE: Well, apparently Riggio picked up my quoting his article on a Google feed or something (see kids? those little spiders do their thing quite well!) and wrote here to complain that I had quoted his piece in total, and that I wasn't allowed to do that since it was unethical.

    Which, technically, he's correct about in terms of me need to have permission to quote in entirety, so when I was informed, I took it down and just left the link. I usually only quote snippets of articles; in this case, you really don't get an idea of how devoid his piece was of any real content without reading all of it, but technically you should only be reading it on Yahoo. So now you'll need to go there to view it in all of its barren wasteland glory.

    However, I think it makes him look even more stupid than he did before. He won a small insignificant battle, and in the process just looked really hypersensitive to the criticism. This is a not even a heavily trafficked site compared to a place like Yahoo. I mean, I honestly don't believe he would have tried to come here and complain if I had quoted his whole article and peppered my response with glowy "I want to have your babies" praise of his mad writing skillz. What initiated it is that I was criticizing him.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
