Nice research. And all I can say after reading it all is FUCK NUANCE.

@nspyraishn You keep using that word ("dearth") -- I do not think it means what you think it means.

Protip: just say "money" when you mean it. This sophomoric construct does not add to your writing: "a significant waste of resources (read: money)".

Why wasn't Moat awarded legal costs? This seems appropriate given the prejudicial dismissal.

Whoops, hit submit too soon and my Edit period expired. Here's what I meant to write:
These SpiderLabs guys sound like a bunch of amateurs with all of their mistakes/ill preparation. (I'm half way through the article anyway -- just scrolled down to see comments so far, maybe my opinion will change after finishing?)
If you want to read a more technical description of some analogous techniques, check out these two books (one includes a chapter from Fyodor of nmap fame):
(There are newer ones in the "Stealing the Network" series but I haven't read them so I can't recommend them -- or not.)
P.S. Sorry about the massive images -- think PD did that automatically? I'd remove if I could without breaking the link ..

@juararetardino "Amazon has never made money and shows no prospects of making in in the future." <-- stupidest thing ever written.
Seriously, do you not get that Amazon could, in a moment's notice, flip a switch and be instantly MASSIVELY profitable? They invest almost every dollar that comes back in the door. Take this Apple fanboy's write-up for instance: http://techcrunch.com/2013/08/05/bezos-not-bozos/.

You say it like that's a good thing. At least try to get a quote from her on how they're for defensive purposes only; she is, after all, the the former president of the EFF so I'm sure she'd be willing to weigh in!

@neoganda @PatrickSF Yeah of course they're not selling us throughput that's equal to the physical line/last-mile speed. They wouldn't be able to provide the upstream bandwidth -- or anywhere near it -- so why bother?

"Work for a fiber internet “to the home” company…We offer 50gb a second and the fastest 150gb when in reality the company tested a fiber to check bandwidth and couldn’t calculate the speed as the machines weren’t powerful enough, something like 40 terabytes a second before the machines topped out…"
Does this snippet not make sense to anyone else?
@davemholmes @adders Follow-up please!
@adders : what'd they pay ya? Don't settle for less than $1,000.

Glad you were able to listen to (and incorporate in your response) the more thoughtful feedback and tune out the more knee-jerk jealous ones. Hopefully you won't be nearly as excoriated this time around. It's clear to this reader that you mean well, even if you rubbed some overly sensitive folks the wrong way.
I took a look at the site and it looks great -- especially love the unique mobile features that allows readers to scroll left-to-right across large, high res photos (complete with author's name and post date appearing to help seek out the specific "voices" one wishes to hear from). Search is great too, and would be even better if you could excerpt (in real-time a la the various search-aheads) the full text that matches the query.
Also, LOVE LOVE the DMCA policy. Plenty of (legitimate) hurdles that the complainant must jump through and then at the end, a snail mail address. So perfect that I made a point to show it to my girlfriend before the rest of the site.
A couple tips/nitpicks on mobile:
1. If after clicking the list icon in the top right, you try to scroll the categories (e.g., News, Entertainment, etc.) than the underlying page scrolls; assume there's nothing you can do about that but thought I'd point it out.
2. If you click back instead of "x" on the Search results, you are taken back to the previous site/page you were on -- not to, for example, the home page of Bustle. I know problems with the back button abound HTML5 code bases, but would be great to fix if possible.
3. Why not profile the editors/authors on the "About" page? Would be great to see a pic and an amusing bio that sheds some light on the "voice" you speak much about.

@JoshuaBolin @JulieFredrickson Well said, sir.
@Monte Gruhlke @PatrickSF Really? You're going to try to throw out my entire post because of one tiny part where I didn't bother to look up the link for the reader? Here is the link in question: http://pandodaily.com/2013/03/25/because-of-asset-seizures-i-am-starting-my-new-company-outside-california/. It was simply pointing out to everyone that Bryan had written extensively about the process of starting his next company -- so he (as Sarah Lacy has pointed out) was WELL within his rights to announce his new company (and their recently closed funding) here.
OK, link provided, now go "tear apart [my] arguments". Your excuse to be lazy has been removed.

Right, because this article is about my company and people are giving me shit and questioning if it'll flop. Or not, and it's about Bryan's company -- and I feel he's being unnecessarily crucified by jealous, spiteful women (and tools like yourself), so I decided to pipe up for him and put you in your place. You know that he'd love to but he'd be further persecuted for doing so.
Maybe so but do you really think this will flop? I'll bet your just-checked-to-see-if-it's-there penis that he personally clears more on this than you'll make in your entire life.
