John ended a comment on a Gizmodo tablet review with the following line.

As to who is right, Cranz uses at least 12 exclamation marks in this review, which I’d wager speaks to her taste.

… whoops! I think exclamation marks render text more friendly, but I guess that’s just me. I use them liberally.

For those who don’t remember, Gizmodo was the outfit that stole a prototype iPhone, then got precious when they were called out on it. They also used a photo of me and asked if their readers were willing to look as stupid. When I called them out for being rude, and for violating my Creative Commons Non-Commercial licence, they didn’t even apologise.

As far as I’m concerned, Gizmodo and their ilk are gutter journalism.
