I hope you have an assistant to read all the crap you link to: you remind me of Naked Capitalism. Is this the future of blogging: becoming Huffington.

@walt9316: Your rudeness might be better appreciated at a less intelligent venue. If you don’t like Felix’s links, don’t read them. I for one find much usefulness in checking the Counterparties section of this blog on a daily basis, and therefore resent your attempt to discourage Felix from posting them. Not that I believe he would be as such discouraged. More so that I personally would like to be spared having to see ignorant comments here as much as possible.

@walt9316 If a link list comprised the sole content of Felix’s daily contribution, your complaint would be valid. However, that is not the case. There’s no reason for such venom. Consider “Counterparties” as lagniappe, a bonus, something extra.

Also, Naked Capitalism isn’t THAT bad! I would hardly consider it as a HuffPo-equivalent.

I am actually a web designer (here is the sample of my work, web site about pdf editor but the way you write your posts is understandable and clear even for me. Thank you very much for your blog!
