at the end he is probably laughing at us.

There are two active threads about him at this time in this forum alone. He's not just laughing, he's rolling on the floor...

He's written articles where he insults EVERYONE that is shooting Digital,.
Id' say that's a good reason to dislike him. If he dislikes all f us...

Controversy, properly used, can be an effective tool for self-promotion. It elicits response where another tact may not. It could all be a carefully crafted and executed campaign.

I think he's playing us all.

Does he somehow earn money off of people clicking his website? If so then I'd say he acts like a moron for the $$$.

Yes I dislike him, but he isn't the only person in the world to dislike. Best off to ignore them all.

They just closed the thread.

How dead can a dead horse be before we stop beating it? Maybe someone can reopen the thread with their own musings on the sage that is Ken Rockwell. I feel that I am too new to the subject of KR to properly give him homage.

Please explain. Do you mean topless from the waist up, or topless from the eyes up? :)
