Honestly, how is this project so different from any other creative task that it invites ridicule from the author?
There have been a lot of creative items on BoingBoing over the years where I've gone "Wow! Someone wasted a whole lot of their life on that!" However, I've never once thought that those projects merited public ridicule. In fact, often I was quietly astonished and amazed at the industriousness and devotion of the creator.
So with this article, who is the author to decide what constitutes "crossing the line"? Isn't that the province of the reader?
If I want to be told how I should feel about the articles I read, I might as well just, as krinkle1917 pointed out, read the Daily Mail.
Please BoingBoing, no more loaded headlines and definitely no more judgmental articles. We the readers are the judges of such content.
If you start forcing such articles on us then we will be judgmental, but it won't be the article contents that we will be judging.
