Journal Journal: Anti Piquepaille Manifesto

I hate all these articles from Roland Piquepaille's blog. They strip the story down to the barest, blandest minimum; when you click through to the blog, you still have to then click on the links in the blog to read the story.

Maybe Piquepaille's articles are good if you don't have the time to read the full story. But if this is the case, what are you doing on slashdot? Slashdot is not for busy people.

Piquepaille is obviously making a mint with the advertising on his website from all the traffic from slashdot, so is he paying slashdot a cut of his advertising traffic? or is he cynically exploiting slashdot and doing not a lot of work for his advertising dosh? He certainly gets a lot of submissions accepted..

My final gripe is that it is always Roland himself who submits his own articles, never a websurfer who came across them and submitted them to slashdot on the basis they might be interesting to the slashdot audience. Self promotion.

Also can anybody think of a good (derogatory) nickname for Piquepaille?
