I can't believe this debate still rages

Attitudes and opinions change and evolve.

You know that feeling you get when you stumble upon something you wrote in the distant past and it's terrible? There are many cringe-worthy bits of immature writing on this website (and I'm probably still creating more).

As well as the mere cringe-worthy, there are also opinions and attitudes expressed that I no longer hold and am, frankly, embarrassed by. (Please don't go looking, they're deliberately hard to find, but left for the sake of posterity.)

I hope if you've stumbled across some here, you'll give me the benefit of the doubt.

The now very tired debate ((Yeah, it’s not really a debate, is it.)) going on between MSM and the journalistic Blogosphere went another round recently thanks to this piece by Christian Kerr in The Australian and some mud thrown back.

I distinctly remember a time when I enjoyed reading The Australian. It hasn’t been that way for a while, and they seem to just keep putting nails in the coffin, becoming more and more conservative and petty (among other adjectives).

Here is a post in reply by the blog being heavily trashed by Kerr. I hope this unavailing and pointless slinging match is abandoned by both sides soon.

Update: More of the same sentiment from Andrew Bartlett.
