Usually I try to avoid the comments, but the ones attached to the Slate article are a goldmine.

"Of what" is left to the discretion of the reader ;)

I used to read The Simple Dollar regularly but the comments turned into such a class war (ironically) that I couldn't stand it anymore. This linked article - which I liked! - will probably set off a mushroom cloud over there. :-)

Agreed on the Simple Dollar. I was often struck by the comparisonitis and class competition among the commenters there.

In fact, when I wrote my Extreme Savings post a while back, I pre-emptively addressed that subject in the footnotes, because I was ready for readers to assume the sample hypothetical income level I used in the post would be seen by some readers as arrogantly high AND by other readers as ridiculously low. Money seems to bring that out in people.

Haveavoice: I think you might have meant to put your comment on my "Yoga Mats" post.

But rest assured, everyone else here at CK is "against corporate poisoning for profit" too. It's sort of like being against puppies.
