Winer Watcher

I’m siding with Mark Pilgrim on the Winer Watcher situation and offers very good explanation of why I feel this way. Tomas puts it pretty succinctly:

My opinion; all people who — like Dave Winer — on a daily basis makes personal attacks and unsubstantial accusations, and then edits them out and pretends they never happened, should have a similar web app watching them.

I check Scripting News throughout the day virtually every single day and I’ve seen Dave’s antics first hand. I have no problem with Dave editing his posts (I do it myself if I see a glaring error here), but I do have a problem with him writing irresponsible things and then pretending they never existed.
