Mike Arrington - apparently Winer's lawyer in the Weblogs.com purchase, drops a little bomb at the end of a post he made:
The only thing I will add is that I was part of the weblogs.com transaction and was also very dissapointed with Rogers Cadenhead’s performance. I have no information on the second part of the dispute.
In the comments, he refuses to say why he was disappointed. Add one more piece to the drive-by assassination of Cadenhead's reputation. Arrington drops a turd on him, and then says, more or less, "oh no, it wouldn't be proper to discuss this". Sure - after unloading a full round on Cadenhead, he counsels silence. There a lot of words to describe that kind of behavior, and none of them are printable here. "Tool" does comes to mind though.
Winer reciprocated with a wet kiss of a post. Fascinating how some companies are Threats to the Universe, and must be stopped by our hero Dave (some nasty comments he's made about Six Apart and Technorati come to mind), while others are just keen. Doesn't have anything to do with the legal relationships involved, I'm sure.
Rogers responded to this mess here, apparently wondering why someone else has decided to join the pile on party.
