I saw a link to this story on the Agonist controversy at Dangerousmeta, and lo and behold, there’s a quote from me at the end! It’s cribbed from this site — the actual writer of the story never contacted me, and misspelled my name to boot. Criticize The Agonist, get free media exposure. Who knew? In any case, I stand by what I said. I really found the whole episode to be a great disappointment.
By the way, the item that the quote was taken from is here, if you’re interested in context.
Update: there’s one thing from the article that I do want to comment on. The writer of the article says that Sean-Paul falsely attributed items cut and pasted from Stratfor to unnamed sources in order to encourage other potential sources to send items to him. That disappoints me more than anything else I’ve read so far. I can understand how one might fall into the trap of trying to manufacture insider status and turn that into a larger audience of readers, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s just unfathomably dishonest. I was very shocked and disappointed to read that.
