What's the matter with Joe Wilcox?
His diatribe of last year challenging a recuperating Steve Jobs to return to work full time:
What has Apple done truly innovative in your absence? Not much… Of course, you don’t want to admit it. But, c’mon, Steve. Let’s be men discussing it.
His challenge to John Gruber five days ago to allow comments on Daring Fireball:
So I close with this challenge: Be a man, John Gruber, and allow comments at Daring Fireball.
Why the ridiculous “manly” posturing?
And then, after John responds, Joe turns around and removes comments from his blog.
The Macalope obviously enjoys a bit of posturing himself but — at least from where he’s sitting — the shtick only works when a) it’s funny and b) it’s coming from the floppy drive mouth of a mythical character.
