qu1j0t3  Councillor Doug Ford, the mayor’s brother and co-host, said 80 per cent of journalists are “nasty son-of-a-guns.” Rob Ford interjected: “Bunch of maggots.” After a brief pause, he added, “Sorry, maybe I shouldn’t have said that.” May 27 00:04
qu1j0t3  Doug Ford later asked listeners to contact him with any personal information about members of the media. He accused unnamed reporters of using cocaine themselves. May 27 00:05
qu1j0t3  Rob Ford read out the names of councillors who handed him another legislative defeat last week by voting against allowing expanded gambling at Woodbine racetrack. Doug Ford said the “vast majority” of councillors “couldn’t get a job” outside politics. He also pledged to reveal damaging information about any councillors who criticize him and his brother.

qu1j0t3  “I can go through all 44 councillors right now, folks — and I’m sure I could do it, but I’m not going to. But I have a message for the councillors: you want to keep throwing stones, I’m going to throw boulders right back at you. It’s very simple,” Doug Ford said. May 27 00:06

schestowitzThus, may I suggest as a prudent move, if you would consider to have all posters be registered prior to posting. In speaking the truth and with civilized discussion, there is no need for anonymity or censorship (short of abuse) and it would help to eliminate the cowardly behavior that I have seen by certain commentators on your blog.May 27 01:10

schestowitz8:08 PM EDT A triad of telling snippets from the above-linked piece on 'The Linux Works' blog:May 27 03:57
schestowitz    Quoting:Last week I had announced in the LXer forums that I would be a contributing author to Linux Advocates. That was followed by a post announcing that I would be joining their team. I was honestly excited about this. I felt that writing for Linux Advocates would add credibility to my stories and bring me back some of the wider audience I had when I wrote for O'Reilly Media. The additional exposure would help me marketMay 27 03:57
schestowitzmy consulting business which brings Linux and FOSS solutions to businesses and organizations looking to reduce IT costs and enhance the reliability, stability and security of their IT infrastructure.May 27 03:57
schestowitz    Quoting:Only then did I really read and digest everything else Mr. Schmitz wanted me to do, like setup an account in his domain so that I could have a Linux Advocates e-mail address. He also wanted me to install a Zemanta plugin for Chrome. I have deliberately chosen not to use Chrome (an article about that soon) and wasn't happy about that at all. I went to install the Zemanta plugin for Firefox instead and was presentedMay 27 03:57
schestowitzwith a Microsoft-style End User License Agreement (EULA). As many in the open source community would expect, that set off all sorts of red flags for me.May 27 03:57
schestowitz    Quoting:Suddenly, I found myself reading a license agreement for a proprietary piece of software that explicitly had terms relating to collecting and retaining data.May 27 03:57
schestowitz    I felt deeply uncomfortable and didn't go through with the installation. It's one thing to be forced to use proprietary software to service a client or do work required by an employed. It's quite another for someone who is getting my labor at no cost and benefiting from it to demand I install something on my own system. I first asked if Zemanta was mandatory and then wrote a follow-up e-mail making clear that I wasn't May 27 03:57
schestowitzabout to install it.May 27 03:57
schestowitz    Mr. Schmitz' response was direct and to the point. If I can't accommodate how he chooses to run his site then I should go elsewhere.May 27 03:57
schestowitzSimilar to one of the above commentator's pieces from nearly three years ago, Latest Examples of Microsoft’s “Embrace, Extend, Extinguish” (EEE), shall the current case be an ongoing example of Advocate, Advertise, Antagonize (AAA) by the original self-proclaimed Linux "advocate" who is the very subject of this thread ???May 27 03:57
schestowitz"May 27 03:57
schestowitz"May 27 03:57
schestowitzFrom what I can gather, Zemanta is a tool designed to increase a blog's audience via the gathering of data inside of their own network of bloggers (which you join by installing the software and using it on your own blog etc...) and search engine optimization.May 27 03:58
schestowitzBasically, what happens is that related content pops up as one is writing a particular blog post and/or article. It can act as a glorified tool of link bait.May 27 03:58
schestowitzI personally don't know the effectiveness of the software in question, though they do have a slick ad for it that can be viewed here:May 27 03:58

schestowitzI'm not so sure that such a tool is appropriate for a Linux Advocacy site. Then again, I'm not the one who runs said site in the first place, so it's clearly not my call. With that said, I personally wouldn't be using a tool such as Zemanta on my own site in the first place, because:May 27 03:58
schestowitz1.) It uses e107, so it's not compatible as far as I know.May 27 03:58
schestowitz2.) I run a personal blog using WordPress, and there's already an SEO plugin at work. I've surfed plenty of times and became annoyed at the ads taking up my screen space, so on my own personal blog, I choose not to have any ads anyway.May 27 03:58

schestowitzAlthough I can't comment on this article as I haven't read it and will not be doing so it seems to me folks should just stay away from LinuxAdvocates and simply not give it the traffic he appears to crave, I stopped going yonks ago simply because very few of the articles made sense in regards to advocating linux which is IMO a serious misnomer.May 27 03:58

qu1j0t3  "Amazon has for years systematically practised so-called wage dumping (Lohndumping) and used Germany’s unemployed as an unpaid labour force.
