At least he's consistent

Like Tim Bray, I've seen this movie.
I don't know if Dare Obasanjo makes valid criticisms of a technology that Tim co-created, but instead of responding to Dare's technical points, Tim makes Dare's personality the issue. I've seen him do it before, he's even done it to me.
I don't always agree with Microsoft (Dare works at MS), and of course I'm scared of them, but I'm scared of Google too and at one point Tim's employer threw its weight around in fearsome ways, but come on, keep the personal attacks out of it.
PS: Microsoft fully supported RSS when it was just past its tipping point, so Tim's historical argument doesn't really wash. If APP were really ready for everyone to use it, I'm sure MS would be on board.
