An update to the Rossman story we talked about earlier this week:

I am told by my attorney that Apple & the firm like my channel, are fans of it, and are friendly.

I am as surprised by this as any of you are.

I'm still interested in the precise issue they have with the channel, as it isn't often customary for high end Manhattan lawfirms to reach out to me to tell me that they're fans. It is persistently clear that there is an issue they have with the content, but I don't know what it is yet. That in and of itself is bothersome and unnerving, but whatayagannado.

Peculiar case.

Your comment really made me annoyed. You were clearly criticising him.

Are you paying for OSnews? Do you expect up-to-the-minute details on everything for free!?

Get a clue.

I stand by what I said, thom wasn't my primary subject in that comment, but I have to ask: is Thom above criticism?

I am thankful for everything he does, but he gets so defensive at the slightest provocation.

Are you paying for OSnews?


Please tell me where I can pay, right now. Because I would be happy to. Especially if it means I can hold this site to a higher standard.

Do you expect up-to-the-minute details on everything for free!?


Nope and that isn't what I said. I do expect that maybe in the 3-4 days after posting the story someone would have bothered to notice that the original story was updated.

Or hell maybe someone should have noticed there were so few actual facts in the original post that maybe the whole thing should have been taken with a grain of salt.

Get a clue. [/q]
Tell me where I can pay, right now, and I will. Especially if it means I can hold OSnews to a higher standard.

jockm,

Thom gets criticized all the time, however telling Thom to give up like that is just mean. I don't want to place you in the position of having to defend that statement because maybe you didn't intend it that way, but that's seriously a mean-spirited thing to say.

Please tell me where I can pay, right now. Because I would be happy to. Especially if it means I can hold this site to a higher standard.

I'm sure Thom would appreciate it if you contributed $20 or $100 bucks. But let's be honest, at that level you shouldn't expect many changes unless it gets multiplied 1000 times over for someone to even consider quitting one's day job to focus on quality tech journalism. The problem is that journalism doesn't pay very much these days. It sucks, but what are you going to do?
