Bloggers are hobby hacks, the Internet version of the sad loners who used to listen to police radios in their bachelor apartments and think they were involved in the world.Then he gives a pretty devastating counter-example.
Personally, I am one of those hobby hacks, but some bloggers are a lot more qualified than the journalist in question, so I get to say "Nyah, nyah! You're stupid!" to the columnist in question in virtue of my fellow blogger's expertise.
Whose the respectable one now, Nick Coleman? Huh? Your newspaper sucks and blows. Nyah. Nyah. Nyah.
See, some of us can even do childish insults better than Coleman. We've got it all over those guys.
