The anti-blogger movement has begun

Or maybe it began some time ago, and I just never noticed.

I saw this little tidbit about a German executive dismissing blogs as 'the toilet walls of the internet', and, as is customary with me, I could feel the outrage rising.

So then I went and read the 'anti-blogger movement' article. I was amused to find that the 'distinguished' advertising executive, Jung von Matt, was forced to publicly apologise for his anti-blogging comments, which included:
What on earth gives every computer owner the right to exude his opinion, unasked for? ...and most bloggers really just exude.

What really gets me outraged in many of these cases is where these dumbarses get off on thinking that just because they don't like something, that it shouldn't exist. I have only one thing to say to people like that, in all cases, wherever they are.

If you don't like it, don't read it! If it's tv, don't watch it! And especially, don't tell us that you think we're the 'toilet walls of the internet', or whatever it is you're offended about.

If something offends you, stay away from it. Don't be a retard, for frack's sake. You only end up embarrassing yourself.

The irony is that the guy is an advertizing executive, talk about someone who fills the world with unwanted-unasked for messages!

The irony, for me, is this guy complaining about everyone thinking they have the right to throw their opinion at the internet by throwing his opinion... at the internet...?
