Oh really

Robert Scoble, one of the louder pro-realname supporters in this Google+ pseudonym debate, said something in a comment to this post by John Hardy that made me both laugh with his arrogance and boggle at his ignorance.

It's not un American, by the way. It's American to SIGN YOUR FREAKING NAME TO THINGS!


Now, setting aside the apparent evidence that Mr Scoble is unaware that the internet does not exist solely in the USA, clearly Mr Scoble has never heard of Publius, the author of The Federalist. Or, as we know today, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, who together wrote a series of essays that is considered one of the three most important documents in American history. (Someone else in the comments brought this up to him. I note that he didn't respond.)

Un-American. Pardon me while I snort with laughter.
