i never actually paid attention to the names on the articles until a few people here pointed out what a dick he was. thought he was just an asshole blogger who failed as a comic book writer (Watchmench...what editor greenlit that bullshit), but over the new year he successfully trolled the lowest possible lows.
I think having his own site made things so much worse. When he just had a column (on CBR right?), a rumor monger could just preview what the hype machine had in store for a few months late (Bendis launching a second Avengers title with Frank Cho! Morrison working on Batman with Kubert!). It is largely benign and kinda fun for fans who want to see what's ahead. When he has to fill blog space every day in order to keep up page views, it makes one more desperate.
I guess. It stands to reason, but I honestly don't remember what the column version was like. Maybe it was just as bad.
