I came across this post about the ongoing arguments over RSS between Bill Kearney and Dave Winer. I watch this sort ofthing with an amused air of detachment; I just work on an aggregator - I don't feel all religious about tag intricacies. Anyway, this is just precious:
Just a little preview of today's episode on the syndication list
Dave: Now I'm filtering his (ed: Bill) email in such a way that it's deleted on the server, I'll never see another message from him, so I won't be able to rebut it. Please assume that I would if I had read it.
Bill: Oh bull****, you've threatened that nonsense before. You're too addicted to all the attention to ever possibly ignore it.
And as with real day time television, you are almost too embarrassed to watch (and you certainly won't admit it), but you cannot get your eyes of it once it is on, just like that car wreck you passed on the highway
The funniest part is the comment thatcame in there:
The first car wreck you pass in a day, sure. The third, maybe. By the twentieth, you just wish the b******* would learn how to drive, so they could stay out of your way and let you get to work.
