I am not having any problems with Google

A very irresponsible journalist, Paul Boutin, wrote a whole story in the Industry Standard which appears to me made up from whole cloth.

He is attributing, to me, a comment posted by an anonymous poster.

I am not using Google Apps, I did not write the comment in question, basically none of the things that Boutin said I did are true.

A part of the problem is the design of my discussion groups, which look too much like the main Joel on Software site. A part of the problem is unregistered, anonymous posters… that will be turned off immediately. Another part of the problem is The New Tech Journalism, which will have to remain a rant for another day.

About the author.

In 2000 I co-founded Fog Creek Software, where we created lots of cool things like the FogBugz bug tracker, Trello, and Glitch. I also worked with Jeff Atwood to create Stack Overflow and served as CEO of Stack Overflow from 2010-2019. Today I serve as the chairman of the board for Stack Overflow, Glitch, and HASH.
