Im not defending the things Andrew has said but I'll sure as hell
defend his right to say whatever he likes.

Im really not liking the way you are pretty much demanding he change
his ways. You dont like what he's said, fine. But are you demanding
that he stop?

Int it enough that rocketboom, Andre and Amanda get serious heat from
sites like this?

You are perfectly entitled to get upset, but should if affect what
someone else says and does?

I think the over the top way that some personal videobloggers respond
to the slightest hint of criticism is likely to do just as much damage
to the reputation of videoblogging as anything Andrew could ever say.
