Rob just published a post called I don’t like Scrivens. I must admit I stopped reading the weblog of Paul after a while because it was… well, just read Rob's point of view and try not to flame. That doesn't help anybody.
I hate Scrivs.
Let's just call it G.W. Bush's addition to Machiavelli's "The Prince" (if any was necessary)
Jeff, I never thought you were into this, though I must say I entirely agree with you. ;-)
Soon people will start commenting as Zeldman. If things get out of hand, we'll all have to get Typepad accounts or PGP crytography keys.
Hah. I was actually just joking. I've got nothing against Scrivs. I was just playing along. :)
I don't know Scrivens, I don't read his blog, and I couldn't care less either. But I like freedom of speech and most importantly freedom of critisism on the web.
I don't have an opinion about Scrivens, so I don't actually take part in the discussion. I don't necessarily agree nor disagree with Rob, but simply because Rob expressed his personal opinion freely I say: Go, Rob, go!!! :-)
And IMHO those people flaming Rob for critisising have no balls (excuse the terminology).
I wrote something about this yesterday, and I just want to underline again that this freedom of opinion and discussion is a good thing. Whether or not you agree or disagree with the expressed opinions is not really the point, as long as we can have an open discussion. Because this can refine our own opinions.
What we need more of is constructive criticism, not fanboyism or simplistic hate messages.

Oh wait... just realised that I have him on my blogroll as "whitespace"... stupid me! :-)
