If you don't have anything nice to say…

Eric Schwartz apparently thinks the Mac web has gone stale.

Well, pardon the Macalope for pointing out what is clearly printed on any feminine hygiene product, but freshness, young man, starts at home.

Instead of whining about it, why not do something about it? You could start a flame war or demand that Apple make a sub-$100 laptop. There are so many ways to make a difference in the Mac web community, if you apply yourself.

Furthermore, there seem to be more new sites starting up that do a few posts and then die off. I know there are plenty of exceptions, but they’re just that, exceptions.

Now you’re being pissy. That’s just the nature of the medium. Low barriers to entry to an established market mean there’s going to be a lot of turnover. But if there are “plenty of exceptions”, what exactly is the problem?

The Macalope thinks you’re just bored. Maybe you need to get outside and get some fresh air.

It’s too bad you don’t appreciate what the rest of us are putting into this family. It’s very sad. It breaks the Macalope’s heart.

Don’t you roll your eyes at the Macalope, buster, or he will turn the Mac web right around.

  • Let’s get ’em, Macalope. We’re the newbies, we can show him whats good!


  • John M:

    We can teach this schmuck a thing or two. For starters, no appreciation for the non-english language Mac web which is really taking off. We’ll gather a posse and speak the lingua franca of one button mouse clicks and … insert regionalised euphemism for physical violence here.

  • Don’t make me come back there. I swear I will tan your hide with a my MovableType if you don’t zip it right.this.instant!

  • Esther M:

    Well, we’re happy to have you, at any rate!

  • Ken:

    Well, as long as you’re around.

  • Gary Patterson:

    I don’t know about stale, but it’s getting quiet around here…

    Hello… ello… ello… lo…

  • this is one of the funniest things I’ve read in a day or two:

    The Macalope thinks you’re just bored. Maybe you need to get outside and get some fresh air.

    Right on.

    It’s what I love and hate about blogs. Just having a thought and sharing it with the world doesn’t make it any more insightful than just having a thought and forgetting it a few minutes later.
