Why Some Linux News Sites Aren't Succeeding

Filed under

I always hate it when a Linux "news" website publishes things that aren't news. It would be like having a hosting website that doesn't do hosting...what's the point really? IF you can call a news article the gathering together of various other news sources, threading them together in one incoherent and blabbering "news" article and then ending the entire article on a point that the headline doesn't even address...nor the first paragraph for that matter...then I guess LinuxInsider has got a dollop of fecal inspired "journalism" for you right on their front page. A retarded baboon could thread a bunch of stories together and draw a conclusion that doesn't have anything to do with any other part by smacking a brick on a typewriter. I suggest LinuxInsider employ a retarded baboon as opposed to the author of this horrible piece.

What's going on with many Linux news websites today? It used to be about the proliferation of Linux and Linux IN THE NEWS. Nowadays it's about who can be the most creative with their Linux aphorisms and who can draw the most conclusions about nothing all while ensuring that as many advertisements as possible barrage their readers.
