"Beyond Lies The Wub"

Walls of the City's Linoge has assembled the definitive post on the apparent copyright infringements, distortions, dissembling and disturbing behaviors of gunblogging's most infamous commercial web-editor.  While I strongly disapprove of naming the individual and website under Linoge's microscope and encourage you to likewise refrain from naming, linking to or visiting the Nameless One, I wholeheartedly recommend Linoge's posting to your attention: he explains, with many examples, why you should black-hole the site and shun the individual.

On the plus side, that number of name and site name references will be sure to generate some google traffic...

That was the goal ZerCool. Link the post liberally to help it's PR. I was thinking about buying a domain to help the traffic but I didn't want to maintain yet another site.

ZerCool touched on this, and I will expand on it - while not naming He Who Shall Not Be Named in your post does avoid the distinct probability that the naming will only serve to stroke his ego, naming the scumbag in question but linking to something other than his work plays the necessary SEO games we need to play to get this post on the front page of Google and other search engines. When people go looking for "The Truth About Guns" or "Robert Farago" or any of those other keywords, I want them to find the post I wrote, because I want them to know what they are getting into.

I am just helpful like that ;).

And, yeah, the domain name was tempting, Barron, but I am a cheap bastard, and while putting ads on a domain dedicated to that post would just tickle my funny-bone to no end, I just could not bring myself to do it.
