The cat fight between Weblog Empire supremo Jason Calacanis and Gawker Media’s Nick Denton has erupted in name calling after Calcanis’ questioning of a Comscore study that placed Gawker Media blogs ahead of sites including Slashdot.
Denton has this to say about Weblogs Inc. at Clickz;
“I know it galls Jason Calacanis that his sites are about as memorable as Burger King franchises, and that none register among the top blogs, except Pete Rojas’s Engadget”
Denton then goes one step further to claim that the big picture of the report is that blog readers are richer and younger, and in a surprising attack on people who may be considered overweight, he states “and one hopes thinner”.
Why the weight of a blog reader is important would be known only to Denton, but if you’re anything more than the weight the doctor suggests you should be at, it looks like Denton doesn’t want you reading his blogs.
