The remarkably thin skinned Cult of Mac

Everyone who follows me on Twitter or listens to YML or who has met me in person knows what I think of the web site, Cult of Mac. Poorly designed, cluttered, bad, writing, awful copy editing, etc., etc., etc.

So it will not come as a shock to anyone that they may not be my biggest fan, either. I'm OK with that. But, when they start doing really stupid stuff is when it gets fun.

Yesterday, one of the mouth breathers at CoM posted a story about the single stupidest thing I've seen come out of CES so far - a Bluetooth enabled FORK. Yeah, it's as stupid as you imagine it to be.

So I commented on the post:

Today, I go back to the site to see if there are additional comments to be made and see this: post is gone. I tried to log in to see if that was the problem and got the "Permission Denied" message.

Now, don't get me wrong. It's their web site. they can do as they please. They can ban anyone as they see fit.

But banning someone just because they've said mean things about you on Twitter seems the height of childishness and petulance. But that's what I've come to expect from Cult of Mac - a web site full of bad writers who can't take criticism.
