If you can follow the discussion, do you really need to critique others spelling? It is beyond rude. What did it contribute to the conversation? It is one of those pet peeves of mine, and back when this site had traffic, it always bothered me, now that it is clinging on for dear life, it's just fun troll bait.

Exactly. A quick look at his little history (especially with Yahoo a few years back) shows that he's only in it to score some meat from a dying company while the victim is still breathing. Notice that he doesn't really go after healthy, growing companies - only those which show signs of being in serious trouble.

Netflix doesn't seem to be showing signs of trouble, or serious trouble. They had a big bump in the road with Quickster, but seem to be all stream ahead now.
