Not exatcly looking for favors, thanks for offering though
EG You said: Since when does having a low post count mean im stupid?
I didn't, please use accuracy when quoting me. I simply said - with admirable restraint I hasten to add - that I merely thought you were being a little presumptious.
Still fail to see why a low post count means i get treated differently then if i had a high post count.

I'm very glad you agree with me. I was actually referring to your own 13 line article entitled "Creative Zen Ships With Virus" and posted as news in your "Hot Off The Press" feature. Well, it had your name on it and you did claim to average 30 - 45 minutes an article.
Hm.. yeah, 13 lines,I would have made it longer, but i didnt feel the need to go rambling on about allt he different virus and spyware definitions, the recent attacks, different ways of defense, and how i feel about it. If you remove all that, and just have the core info in the articles, the core details that relate to the story, then they are similar in length.

Hm.. i still dont see how that article is a comic book. it doesnt have pictures in it. To me, some of the articles on Slyck, seem comedic, with all the questions asked, and with all the rambling to keep it longer. Size doesnt make quality news. Neither does manipulation to get everyone to see things your way.
I don't feel hatred of the site, just sadness that an opportunity has been wasted. But I am entitled to my opinion as you are to yours, and readership tells the full story.
What oppertunity was wasted? You say readership tells the full story? Slyck is dedicated to news, while the Hot off the Press section is more of a hobby of mine. Of course your going to have more readers. Im not debating who has more readers. What im saying is that Length, and popularity doesnt make something good.
