I stopped reading SA after Carnes. Shortly after his posts I started to see other shorts doing the same short and distort approach while using SA as a launching board to somehow claim legitimacy. Needless to say their reputation is ruined as far as I'm concerned.
I agree whole heartedly. They still send me notification on articles but when I tried to post legitimate comments that questioned the motivation of the article writers they notified me they could not post my comment. Isn't that amazing, they will blindly publish an article without questioning whether it is true or not but will not publish a comment that questions motivation! I stopped paying any attention to them after that. They are clearly there for the shorts.
