"We don't have to make uncool into a crime"

I've seen a ton of things about the whole aforementioned Hopper/Merritt flap that I've been tempted to blog (some of them are in the comments of the last post about it), but it feels like throwing fuel onto a pretty stupid fire. Which isn't quite fair, because there are plenty of important/interesting issues at play here, it's just that the main players are mostly mishandling things. I do like Anthony's take on the whole mess, though. And unless something really astounding comes along, I don't think I need to say any more about it.

That Slate article was a really interesting read, as was your and Anthony's responses to it. Cheers for the link.

Anonymous, you're more than welcome to post again when you've got something to say that has anything to do with anything I've said. More baiting will be met with more deletions, I guess, especially if you're not willing to use your name.
