:) Why is it that folks that wanna complain seem to always lack the courage to identify themselves of provide contact information?

Note to anonymous keyboard warriors.

1.) Consumption of web content is OPTIONAL and free. It you dislike, don’t consume.

2.) Constructive criticism and advice is always welcome. Inane vialness is not.

3.) A a general rule you should not write anything that you would not have the courage to say to me if you were standing within arms reach.

3.) If you want to be insulting, have the courage to include your real name and email address (and if you are really trying to be insulting, include your phone number and street address :) )

It may be a new year – but some things haven’t changed.

You have contact request!

I don’t get it. Your videos are helpful, but I can’t figure out if you like the sound of your own voice, or if you just have problems being a professional presenter. Can’t you just STFU and present rather than talking tons on tangents and repeating yourself constantly. Also, how about getting a foam filter to put over your mouth-piece so that we don’t hear those nervous, exaggerated plosives blowing-up your microphone every time you try to expressively explode from one of your own PERSONAL hold-up points. It can’t be that hard to relay what you’re trying to say without twitching the mouse around the screen nervously so much – in fact, trying to calm down, focus, maybe do a little scripting / outlining *might* help a bit. Otherwise, once I get past this crap (which you’re not showing any improvement over time), when I can stand to sit through your inane commentary, your videos are somewhat helpful (though cursory – if you really focused, you could pack much more of a punch).

BTW – This is posted for fun. I get many great email from developer friends all over the world and there are far more “Good Guys” than there are jerks :)
