So someone posts something
related to Cory Doctorow and the thread immediately goes into two minute hate meltdown. I'm not exactly Cory's greatest fan either but I'm always a bit bemused by the extreme reaction I see whenever he turns up on the blue (for another example here's one
I did that went in a similar way). I know he can be a bit of a self-aggrandising dick at times and the Violet Blue fiasco
was not great but there are others who have committed much bigger crimes but don't seem to get nearly the same reaction.
