I want to comment on Big Head Rob’s recap of the Haters Happy Hour.
More than one plucky blogger wanted to chat our ear off about [him]. We’re fine with that.
Said one: “Rule #1: Don’t piss off DCB. He’s a prick, but he’s powerful…Readers apparently equal authority.”
What a ridiculous statement. Authority to do what? I really doubt that there are people agreeing with me simply because I get a few extra visitors. I like to think people agree because I write well thought out opinions and criticisms. If I have hated on you it is because you deserved it. Without my hate or not, people would have caught on eventually.
Said another: “He has a gift for writing, and he’s created an authentic, consistent voice for himself. His choice of topic stirs people up, and that’s another matter. But so did the content of Howard Stern in his day.”
Howard Stern is worth millions and has a model girlfriend half his age. Woe is him.
And this gold nugget came in an e-mail, marked “destroy after reading”: “The most arrogant guy with the most overblown ego there is. But the blogging community needs someone like him. But the bloggers he hangs out with act like they’re in high school, obsessing with each other’s blogs in a popularity contest. They’re all very nice, but I try to stay away from them with a 10 foot pole.”
Sounds like sour grapes. We probably stay away from you just as much.
Everyone at the happy hour was very friendly to me, so I find it strange that there were at least three individuals whose words didn’t quite match the friendliness. I may not be well-liked because I don’t play nice, but at least I won’t anonymously gossip about you to another blogger. :boring:
…he insists that he doesn’t want fame, just to get laid.
From life, yes. From the blog, well, that would be a nice byproduct now wouldn’t it. :hump:
Big Head Rob can be the Page Six of the DC blog world. His repeated blatant attempts to stir up controversy for attention has been noted.
