I don't see a "smear" above, Gomi.
Then what, exactly
, is your point?
Gomi, if you haven't yet figured out that interesting and important stories emerge, ex post facto, from knowing the people with whom Jimbo connects himself (Michael Davis, Larry Sanger, Ryan Jordan, Carolyn Doran, Rachel Marsden, Freud Communications, to name just a few -- and I know of others privately whom I won't mention), then you're just not paying attention, or you're pushing an irrational agenda that we must "protect" all people who fall into Jimbo's orbit.
It's useful to know the identities of these people, because there's a damn good chance that something odd, or self-serving, or conflicted in interest is just around the corner.
Granted, there will occasionally be a "false alarm" like Tara Hunt, but I'd rather have the information that wants to be free, rather than shutting my eyes and ears to it.
