<rant> How does this differentiate him from any other BBC journalist?

Actually, credit to him on being better in one way: you can reply somewhat more openly at http://bill.verity-networks.com/billslog/stuff/00000053.html which looks similar to the BBCi article.

Hmm, is it a good idea to feed someone who proclaims to be controversialist?

In the BBC article the most notable diference was what I perceive to be an instigation -- 'Linux developers on high-horses' or something like that. I think traditional BBC journalists do a job controlled by higher forces whereas this joker is contracted just to dig up controversies.
Best not feed him his daily 'bread and butter'.

Posting on his blog will be like appearing on Kill Roy or Jerry Springer to discuss free software.
