Sitting here wondering…….why would this guy have a problem with you? How many recommends are too much. I notice that many of the best pieces are recommended by you. Most of the writing that has a staff recommendation also has yours along side of it. I have finally come to the conclusion that you are stealing their thunder. They are having trouble hanging on to any importance when they give their recommend because you have already recommended it. And people are more likely to read a piece that you recommend than one they recommend. You are bigger than “Staff”. And you should be. You have the calluses on your ass to prove it. They need to grow up, admit they made a mistake, and back off the bullshit.
