The guy has got up my nose more than a few times with that shit that he used to do through - was it Medium, Vice, or MediumVice, or some such piece of shit. It got to the point that I was looking for ways to actively block his stuff from coming up again (short of completely trashing Slashdot.
But props to the guy - he has improved his posting somewhat the last couple of months, and has squeaked back into being worth paying attention to. In particular, in this one he STARTS with a link to TFP (that The FUCKING PAPER, for the multitude of Slashdotters whose association with science is more in their imagination than the reality) on ARXIV. So I think he's learning his craft.
I've no idea what his writing on Forbes is like because I can RTFP, so I don't need second hand presentations. But if he's trying to be a science journalist there, then the fact he's appreciating the importance of primary sources is worth noting and encouraging.
