Gruber the booger:
What a load of garbage.

This shows what a self centered cunt Gruber is.

It's all about John all oh the time.

That was a painful read.

Not because it's bad or sad news. Rather because Gruber makes everything revolve around himself.

Could Gruber be more of a knob? He could try, but I think not.

I want to write, but I don't want to have to work!

Dumb Grub:
"I didn’t want to write books. I didn’t want to write for a newspaper or magazine or someone else’s website."

I didn't want to be held to anyone else's higher standards. I didn't want to work. I wanted mostly to steal the efforts of those who were writing and reporting for newspapers, websites and book publishers, append a banal, sarcastic, asinine line or two to their hard-won pieces and call myself a 'writer'.

It's so inspiring, how he's chosen to make his internet diary into a career. Really changed the world, he has.

> DF RSS feed sponsorships remain strong

Even though he keeps dropping the price and still has open slots.

The Deck was a good idea. I do appreciate the small size. And I like the weekly sponsorships.

Now if Grubs could just drop the political posting, he'd be good.

Oh- this is a five star post from Grubs.

I really should start tracking these.

Something Flaring:
No, he didn't charge $19/yr for some exclusive content; he charged that for t-shirts. A donation in that amount just granted you access to the full-content RSS Feed: http://daringfireball.net/2004/06/something_daring

the correct right:
DWFC is this weird circlejerk anymore. Devoid of insight these days, and just a bunch of inside jokes. kudos to proving Gruber right, I guess, by having no comments

>DWFC is this weird circlejerk anymore.

Pretty much like every circlejerk online.

>Devoid of insight these days, and just a bunch of inside jokes

Because your pissing and moaning is so very insightful. If you can't take a joke, lots of luck in life.

>kudos to proving Gruber right, I guess, by having no comments

Relax guy. If your delicate sensibilities can't handle it then why are you here?

Gruber is a very fine write:
TL;DR: The short leg fell off the DF revenue stool; DF is fine.

Quoting a pedophile. Excellent stuff, Gruber.

Nobody is going to watch this horseshit, Johnny Boy.

@Heinz Gruber:
How fucking stupid are you, you illiterate bellend?

Nabokov wrote a book about a pedophile, he wasn’t one himself.
