    The money quote:
    Two years ago, I would have run with it," said Jason McIntyre, owner and operator of the Big Lead. "But as the blogs get bigger, you have to be careful about what you say . . . you can't go with the first rumor you hear."


    Fozzie pics anyone?

    This is what is referred to as the market correcting itself.

    Well, I guess we don't have to worry about him anymore.

    Leitch is a fucking tool. The guy has sold out way more than McIntyre has.

    To be fair, selling out has been McIntyre's only accomplishment.

    How so?

    By writing a book? By leaving BLOGS! for a magazine? By not posting the absurd rumors that TBL runs with?

    Hope this trend holds true for all blogs. After all, doesn't someone begin to outgrow the term "Balls Deep" when they get 2-3 years out of college?

    A response from KSK.

    Here's the close:

    But, while we’re on the subject of a hypothetical battle royale, you’ll pardon me if I yawn while I contemplate his pointed barbs. Here’s McIntyre’s sharp-tongued response to a commenter who questioned his typically twisted syntax yesterday:

    Didn’t know EB Shrunk read the site. Good to know

    You know, it would be funny if it were an act. After one of McIntyre’s readers sends him this link — Lord knows he doesn’t read any blog posts that aren’t served to him over email — perhaps he can purchase his very own copy of the essential guide for anyone who cares about written communication, co-authored by the foremost American belletrist of the 20th century, E.B. White, and one of his professors, William Strunk. Strunk. With a T. You fucking clod.

    Until that happens, McIntyre, keep my name out your mouth, unless it’s to say, “Thank you, Matt Ufford, for having the decency to not reveal my identity while I was collecting paychecks and wasting oxygen at US Weekly.”

    Leave me to my nice little bubble of cheap jokes and frivolity, and get back to doing what you do best: counting your page views and sucking media cock.
