Open season: April 22, 2009

It’s the first full day without comments at FrontBurner, but you’re welcome to comment here.

Personally, I always thought Leading Off was meant to “lead off” the discussion of the day, but now it just sort of sits there, collecting dust. After you read it, there’s no need to go back and add another click to the FrontBurner page impressions count.

Feel free to be sarcastic, off-topic, or informative in the comments.

UPDATE (10:31 a.m.): Tim has reached a new low with an “Open Letter to a Litterbug.” He saw someone littering and then decided to look up the person’s license plate and openly call her out by name. The conversation has started in the comments.

    Open letter to a litterbug? Talk about trolling.WTF is Tim trying to do? That post makes me think of Kevin Coster in Dances With Wolves riding back and forth hoping he gets put out of his misery. Something really ugly must be going on behind the scenes.

  2. towski says:

    Seriously. Isn’t that terribly irresponsible, posting someone’s personal information on your commercial website? Between this and the publicist post, there is some pretty impressive dickishness going on.

  3. Steve says:

    With no commenters to keep them honest, I think Tim condescension and Wick’s narcissim are going to drown Frontburner in a sea of douche.

    It’s rampant there. Merritt does the same thing with church employees, the mothers of her kids’ [probably former] playmates, etc. They embarrass private people who did not seek to be put in a public spotlight in such a snarky way. And then they wonder why there are snarky comments. Puhleeze.

    On Trey Garrison’s blog, in a thread about commercial real estate, someone named amanda explains:

    Okay, for those of you in the cheap seats…in the print product of D, there used to be a “blurb” of butt throwers. It identified the make/model of the car, and the location of the thrown butt.

    It was very controversial. Tim is being IRONIC. By posting something that previously got him in trouble, he’s being funny. Sorry y’all don’t get it

    So for those of us in the cheap seats, Tim was being funny, by being IRONIC. Get it?

    Embarrassing people by printing their personal information?! Just who in Hell does Tim Rogers of 10468 Silverock, Dallas 75218, think he is?!

  7. HOLY SHI* DUDE. What did this guy ever do to you? Inquiring mind want to know, since, y’know things are slow and you seem to have a great deal of time to devote to slamming FrontBurner, Wick, and Tim.

    There’s a story here, can’t wait to find out what it is. Something is definitely burning on the stove, anyone know the real background?

    Do tell.
