What kind of a stupid name is "The Shrubbloggers"?    |    Why is there a "2.0" next to the crappy logo?    |    You could well starve if you feed on our RSS.

Feeding the Trolls
May 28, 2009 — 11:44 pm

Why do I do it? Some high school English teacher with an axe to grind has started filling Show-Me Daily with rancor and intimations of institutional bias — as though he thinks nobody could possibly reach the conclusions we publish unless somebody paid us to doctor the research. But I know what we do is accurate, to a fault, and it’s obvious he’s a crank that nobody will take seriously. Still, I keep responding — even though his comments all follow posts I didn’t write. Check it out:

How to Compete With Charters

Education, Not Regulation

Answers to Charter School Criticism

Professional Licensing: A First-Person Perspective

Another Reduction in Government Lobbying

Choice as a Motivator

The guy devotes his comments to ad hominem attacks to such an absurd degree that he reminds me of this Onion article.

In other work-related news, I have a piece in the latest issue of Atlas Highlights. Yay.

Update: I’ll keep adding adding links to blog entries that this guy has commented on. He’s pretty entertaining.
