Thank you for your well-considered response. You make a number of good points. Nevertheless, I’m afraid we shall have to agree to disagree. First off, every writer has his own individual style. Mine is probably “unusual,” shall we say? I foment discussion in my own way and it works.
The facts and citations I present may seem to be arbitrary and “one-sided,” but the truth is, I see this kind of IT journalism all the time. Who doesn’t do what I do at InfoWorld and eWeek and PC Magazine (John C. Dvorak is one of my favourite journalists and I sort of channel him)? I’m not doing anything that other writers don’t do and it would be disingenuous to suggest otherwise.
