It’s just data


Rogers Cadenhead: If Randy wants to change elements to “elements and attributes” as a spec clarification, I’m comfortable solving the problem in that manner.

Positively breathtaking.

It gets better.  Rogers declares that he knows the author’s intent.  It is not like the author is dead.  It is just that he (Rogers) doesn’t exactly have an productive working relationship with the author.  Nor does he apparently respect the author’s intent — originally posted over three years ago — in other matters.

Rogers then proceeds to post a rationalization.

With apologies to Jon Stewart, “And I wanted to — I felt that that wasn’t fair and I should come here and tell you that I don’t — it’s not so much that it’s bad, as it’s hurting RSS.”
