Hilarious. Ludicrous. Ridiculous. Nefarious.
Four words that came to mind when I chanced to read the comments section of this blog. I had posted a comment on it around a month back. It is William Reardon’s (I have no idea who he is) allegedly technical blog and this particular one was one denigrating and denouncing Scribd. I was amazed at the bilious and vicious wording of the blog (maybe he was pissed off at something?) and more than that, the lack of any justification for his rant irked me tremendously. I promptly stated the fact that the site did indeed provide a way to store files as PDFs (which the author had vehemently denied) and also that it was quite a pointless blog. What happened next is there for all to see in the comments section. One thing is for sure – whatever respect I could have had for the author was quickly dissipated within the first two paragraphs. I guess the author had forgotten that noblesse oblige applies to all. Even programmers.
