Valley Wank

Arrington starts off with something of a point about Valleywag, which seems to be getting less interesting as it gets desperate for scandal. (The whole Jimmy Wales storyline that it's currently obsessed with is just boring. And it sorta makes me feel sorry for everyone involved. Which is hard to do!) But Arrington's faux-ethicist values aren't up to the task -- he eventually loses our attention by playing the suicide card. It's a ridiculous gesture, especially since everyone knows suicide is more likely in The Valley if you get added to the TechCrunch Dead Pool than if your weird kink is revealed on Valleywag. (Dave Winer's decent counterpoint: Isn't Wikipedia the scurrilous one?)
