Sour grapes

You can't please everybody all the time.
Got this e-mail last week from a Midnight Sun reader.
It's about my Fab Five Friday on wine tastings.
Hi Sam,
If you're going to give out information about wine events I'd like to see something more definitive than "I believe." Nobody cares what you believe. Just put down the facts. Other than that your information sucks.

That makes no sense. It was clear that it was your opinion, and an opinion is not fact.

I care deeply.

Your information doesn't suck. Now, your attitude? That's another matter altogether ... ;)

Did Ed Y. provide documented proof that "nobody cares what you believe"?

guess Ed has never visited a blog- short for 'weblog', it documents the authors personal opinions and ideas.

was this guy lost and looking for the Sun's Talkback forums?
