Let's see. One person quotes a buncha posts from LXer, then posts that summation of said posts on another blog. Another person then posts that post of past posts on the blog the original posts were originally posted on. Kind of a post posting of past posts. Anyone fer a bowl of post toasties?

nb --all criticisms original

@notbob, you have just described Katherine Noyes weekly column for Linux Insider to a tee. It's always a bunch of pointless quotes.

Your post reminded me of an old Billy Preston song...

"Will it go round in circles Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky

I've got a story, ain't got no moral Let the bad guy win every once in a while"

Yet another pointless piece of tripe from Catherine Noyes

It does my heart good to see that Linux is important enough to rate a gossip columnist. Just think, our very own Rita Skeeter!

Ummm... so, tracyanne..... would you mind explaining precisely WHY you posted such "pointless tripe" back to LXer? That was pretty much the crux of my catty criticism. ;)

1/ I didn't post it, someone else did. I'm merely the gatekeeper.

2/ I don't read every post, I merely make sure they are not posted by spammers, before I accept them.

3/ this one was posted by someone who is a regular contributor

4/ This particular person's posts always seem to default to my name

5/ go figure
