"you might as well ... use your front page to display adverts"

Adverts, of a kind - but of opinions not products. Essentially it's putting your opinion leader on the front page. And the tenor of constant indignation... well it's a bit tiresome, isn't it?

What is fisking?

  • Jargon File: [blogosphere; very common] "A point-by-point refutation of a blog entry or (especially) news story. A really stylish fisking is witty, logical, sarcastic and ruthlessly factual; flaming or handwaving is considered poor form. Named after Robert Fisk, a British journalist who was a frequent (and deserving) early target of such treatment."
