Brad: "your use of bold type".
I don't mind emphasis being used appropriately. What I find are people who visit other people's web sites and criticize the layout/fonts/etc. without being asked. People who do that are pedantic and rude.
Larry Bank: "Your site won't solve anything"
How do you know? Are you basing that on inside knowledge that none of the rest of us (including Jeff and Joel) don't have? Or are you just being a rude idiot. (I'm guessing it's the latter choice, myself.)
Alan: "Hasn't this all been done before, what makes yours different."
Why don't you just wait and see before passing judgment?
Joshua Gosse: "I don't think this site will work [snip nonsensical MS/OSS, Jeff/Joel bashing blather]. Books is [sic] MUCH better than what you can find online."
How can you say the site won't work without waiting to see what it does exactly?
And in what way are books better? They're expensive, become outdated quickly, have limited content (and therefore limit your options), and take up space. For example, my "Advanced Undocumented MS-DOS 5" book cost around $60 when I bought it, is about 1000 pages and so is pretty heavy, and hasn't been useful for around 10 years now; it does have some pretty nifty stuff for it's day, though. In what way is that better than being able to search the entire globe for various ways to do things, have many options to choose from, and have knowledge available from many different people, as opposed to only having the options that one or two authors decided were best?
And perhaps grammar should be the subject of the next book you spend your money on - since you used "Books" (a plural), the appropriate phrasing would be "Books are" (plural) and not "Books is" (singular).
GUI Junkie: "you ain't got notting [sic] yet. ... please refrain from bugging me/us)."
Great! I have a solution for you! DO NOT open your browser and type in http://www.stackoverflow.com and no one will bug you! Idiot. Nobody is bugging you - it's your choice where you go with your browser. You don't like the site? Don't visit, and don't waste everybody else's time with your babble.
"No RSS" or "No accessibility support" complainers: Give them time, people! There's an old expression that mentions something about Rome not having been built in a day.
Sure, it's nice if there's full RSS feed support, and the site works equally well for sighted/blind, hearing/deaf, genius/learning disabled, NFL quarterback/physically challenged, marathon-sprinting/wheelchair-bound, male/female/transgender types, and eventually it probably will. Hell, someday Jeff and Joel may just transport themselves over broadband thoughtwaves right to your desk and help you type the code in person! So why not quit whining and give them time; obviously, since the only thing on the site currently is a cartoon, an mp3 and a rar download, and a couple of links it's a work in progress, right? Did you catch the "in progress" part of that question?
