Influencers

Reader PB informs this desk that Mining Journal has published a “Mining’s most influential 2020”, a list of fifty people that has your humble scribe at number 50 of the 50 (as well as Keif at number 44). Can somebody send over a copy of the piece so we can all laugh at this stupidity? It’s under paywall and nobody should pay money to read such tripe.

    Openly advocating theft. Cool move, brah. Proceed to rationalize…

      Did I damage your heart, Colin? Thank you for caring, now I fully expect you will write 50 times to Mining Journal and complain about the 50 times that bunch of rip-off merchants stole items from this blog and used them without a single reference or link. As my moral guardian, I demand you have a good day.

    Breaching Mining Journal’s paywall is analogous to a subscriber distributing your weekly missive without permission. I understand your intent though, since it was expressed: “…nobody should pay money to read such tripe.” Could be true but unfortunately has no bearing on the morality or legality.

      Any particular reason you feel compelled to put me on a pedestal? Give it a break with your legal opinions of a blog post, it’s not a window into my soul.

    Colin made a valid point and I elaborated on it. Your response on both occasions is vituperative.

    So let’s cut to the chase: your position is hypocritical.
