The Personal Disquiet of

Mark Boulton

Getting a rise out of me

– June 30th, 2005 –

Normally this sort of abuse goes straight from my inbox and into the trash without even touching the sides. On this occasion however it kind of pissed me off.

Here’s the full text from mr ‘[email protected]’. (This is what pissed me off actually - the guys complete lack of nads in not leaving an email address for me to reply to his ‘concerns’)

p>So, here we go:

Groan!!!

YOU: “PLEASE SEE THE COLOPHON”

ME: “BUT THERE IS NO APPARENT HYPERLINK TO F***ING COLOPHON!”

I mean “COLOPHON” anyway? Pretentious? Moi?

So utterly typical of self-congratulory, useless, self-serving, so-called “usability” and web-design “experts” that abound now.

You “talk the talk” but, ultimately, always fail to “walk the walk”. Just let us guys in the trenches do the real work of webbing-up the world and you useless art-school ponces can wank-off and pontificate as you will.

Nice green and grey website you have!

9rules! Uhghhh! What a joke!

Hmmm. What an angry young man.

What do you make of that?

Actually, from my lofty status, I pity the fool. ;-) He’s probably some relic from the dotcom boom festering in his own bitterness at the whole affair five years later.

I mean, ‘in the trenches’ … purleese.
