Editorial Yesterday, a story made its rounds across the internet. It was picked up by many large news websites, and I'm sure it will be quoted by people until eternity. It was published by a large website, looked all fancy, it had multiple pages - it looked like it was really something. However, anyone with even the remotest bit of knowledge knows that the article was a collection of complete and utter bogus.

High Five

Well said, Thom. It is a good debunking of a shite article.

You get a high five.

There is altogether too little rigour used in arguments made on the internet, as though being on the internet is some sort of excuse. It is a vicious cycle - the more crap there is, the more we expect crap, the more willing we are to put up with crap, instead of insisting on quality (ie not crap). Alas, naught can be done.
