    Why doesn’t Twitter just charge these clients to tap into their service?

    Jason, Very recently you were hard on JC Penny over there shady SEO tactics. “I don’t know if it was this episode or not: I watch on boxee” Yet you continue to piggy back on Leo Lapporte’s brand. WTF? Maybe you should take the high road, apologize and say were fixing the naming situation, and are going to just focus on providing great content. Money is the root of all evil, and it is getting to you.

    I had just got dun reading Jason’s official statement on the TWiT.TV vs. thisweekin.com naming controversy and was still a bit annoyed. This Probably wasn’t the place to make that post. But still him stealing leo’s brand is crap

    That Bowflex ad was pretty weak. What happened to only accepting sponsors that you love and can stand behind? Seems like Moe 3000 is getting the better of you, Jason.

    Exactly my thoughts. You stole the words from my mouth.

    There must be a story behind that.
