    I thought Jess had a tech blog. This one's all about cleaning the house. Screw that.

    That Stacy Brown blog is embarrassing. It's worse than Webster's.

    Stacy Brown's reporting in general is an embarrassement. Would somebody please, please tell him to use a notebook and/or tape recorder for God's sake so maybe he can report accurately instead of from memory.

    Note to everyone who posts here: you're a serious bunch of assholes (except for the guying telling Mitchell to shut up).

    Brown's reporting is fine, as is his (and Webster's) blog. Jessica's column is well done.

    Care to post an example of your fine work?

    In most arguments, I look for the side yelling "shut up" -- and then I move to the opposite side.

    I'm sorry, maybe I'm missing something or maybe Mr. NEPAMedia incorrectly described the column, but it's about cleaning your house, not technology. Not a criticism, just an observation.

    Hey, I just asked what Jess is doing. I like Jess and didn't know that she was an editor now. How does that make me an asshole, asshat?

    Plenty of my fine work, and that of the people who work for me, is posted if you know where to look. Just Google my name and there's tons of hits.
