Complain About Glenn Greenwald Coverage Here

I went overboard on GG coverage the first few days.

I have corrected that.

I posted about all sorts of different things today, including a funny top ten list.

I had to scramble because Instapundit linked my main page on the Glenn Greenwald story, and there was nothing obvious for those thousands of potential new readers to read. So I quickly cobbled together a quick recap, so that the thousands of new people would actually be able to read the story they came here for.

And yet the bitching does not end. If some of you think it's funny, trust me, it's not at this point. I am getting extremely tired of it.

What did you do in pre-Glenn Greenwald days, when I posted a story you weren't interested in, I wonder? Did you manage to successfully operate that scroll-bar and roll right on past the story? Did you maybe check out another blog to see if they were writing something more to your liking?

Please tell me why those formerly useful procedures are apparently no longer possible for you, eh?

This has to be fun for me, too, guys. I am not your frigging dancing monkey here 15 hours a day to amuse you. I get to amuse myself, too. And I do it in hopes that one day it will lead to something better than shit money making dick-jokes and calling Keith Olbermann a douche.

Yes, this is a job of sorts, but it is a job that pays below minimum fucking wage. So keep that in goddamned mind the next time you get in your head to endlessly criticize someone providing you with free fucking entertainment every day of the week.

Gee, when's the last time I had a vacation that lasted more than two days?

You guys get vacations, right?

Well consider this week, and maybe next, mine.

Update: Let me address past criticisms and future criticisms of my coverage on this story in one swoop.

You posted too much on this in the first couple of days.

Yes, I did. And did you notice? I corrected that today. And, in case you're keeping track, this story broke here late Wednesday night-- Thursday morning for most of you. So this isn't exactly a long-running story.

I'm not interested in this story.

Well I am. How ya like them apples?

I'm sick of seeing the name "Glenn Greenwald."

Almost as much as I am. I have a suggestion for you: scrollbar. I have another possible option: enjoy one of the many fine blogs advertised in the blogroll.

I cannot possibly bear to read a site that mentions Glenn Greenwald even once or twice a day, or, as the story cools, once or twice a week.

Then I'm afraid you and I will have to part company. Although coverage already has diminished, and will diminish still, there will be occasional updates on this site about it. If you can't handle that, again, I invite you to sample some of the many other fine blogs available on the Internet.

Or, better still, open an account at and start your own blog. You can fill a blog with nothing except stuff you're interested in. One catch-- you have to write it yourself.

Did I mention I really want you stop writing about this story entirely?

Long story short: I don't give a shit. See suggestion above.
