It appears that Nicholas Jackson does not understand how modern media works. The trolls are necessary in order to develop that inclusiveness...that "us vs. them" mentality. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of random people saying "I agree." on every article. That doesn't drive revenue. No, my friends, those trolls are necessary, in fact, I'd go so far as to say they are vital.

I really like how instead of intelligent discourse about the triggers for the landslide and any possible ways to prevent/predict future landslides, people latch on to one phrase, and use it to belittle the media or other political stances. It's like those Christian right-wing people obsessively throwing the word "hypothesis" around to justify their idiotic creationist beliefs. Was it a tragedy? Yes. Was it a disaster? Yes. Is that was this discussion is about? No. Please take it somewhere else, so we can continue to discussion.

That's a difficult question. In my office, it tends to be the women who have the most issues with being criticized by another woman. I've had my work critiqued on multiple occasions by female coworkers, both my equals and superiors, and I didn't take it personally or become defensive. Now, I can only speak for myself, rather than my entire gender (which the author of the article has done), and I am sure there are men who have issues with it. In regards to the article, what's the solution? The author lists several problems plaguing the industry, but offers no concrete resolution. I have an issue with that. If you are going to call out an issue, you need to also come prepared with a way to fix it. If you don't, no one will ever take you seriously.

The bogosity meter just pegged.
