A month or so ago, the famous Robert Scoble was crying about the fact that some other nerd site did not link to him . It turns out that his company, Podtech , does not play by the rules he cries about.
Their talent ? has gone on a Wallstrip and Howard Lindzon rampage, calling Wallstrip horrible and me a ‘douchebag’ (o.k. that was funny considering the sources – David CRUD ).
I call it linkbaiting, which is pretty bad, but worse when you don’t even have the courtesy to link.
Social. The blogosphere is one big conversation. Interesting topical conversations move from site to site, linking to each other. Through blogs, people with shared interests build relationships unrestricted by geographic borders.
UPDATE – Shel Israel Co-Authored this book and wrote this passage. I assume Robert read it though.
His talent? has banned me from their website. It’s the same talent that has attacked me and my projects and linkbaited me. I have never left a harmful message on his site. I don’t read it. I have gone their to pull the links about me to post here.
Here is what I get when I try the site- You Are Banned. You Just Don’t Fit In Here. Now I agree. I don’t fit in with this group of haters. But, if attacked, and baited, I should be able to respond on my blog.
Robert, what gives? This is amateur hour over at Podtech . I guess it’s ok to bully as long as it is not happening to you.
