Byrne's naked shorting crusade outs Yahoo! security vuln

Legal implications?

@Ian Ferguson: I too was surprised by the sympathetic tone of the article, and the total omission of any reference to the legal implications of Bagley's hacking.

@David Stever: Which GOPers do you mean? Bagley and Byrne are both Republicans.

Freudian slip

"The site sees itself as an encyclopedia with a 'neutral point of view' - whatever that is."

Right, "neutral" is hardly in the vocabulary of this wikiobsessed web rag.

More Reg Wiki-obsession

Big effen deal

I am shocked, shocked that Wikipedia's pristine reputation has been besmirched yet again, and that this trashy little website looks saw luminous by comparison.

Who cares?

What's "one-sided" is your unhealthy obsession with Wikipedia and every belch and far emanating from that website. Who cares?

Latching on to the demented Byrne, because he hates Wikipedia, just makes you people look foolish.

Patrick Byrne's problem isn't Wikipedia

Patrick Byrne's problem is that he can't squeeze a single quarter's profit out of this tired old dog of a company, which he has financed primarily by secondary stock offerings.

Your own publication wrote one of the first detailed articles questioning Overstock's business model, and described Byrne's bizarre behavior.


Nothing has changed since this article came out two years ago, except that Byrne has gotten more loony and delusional.
