Open Letter To +Danny Sullivan On The Subject Of Boring Tech News

Please stop hogging the top news spot on Techmeme with your uninteresting story that most of us don't care about. I mean, even for Google+ tech news, of which tech news is already saturated, this whole theoretically "massive" story of Google's mismanagement of G+ business profiles is one big snoozer and eye roller combined for the 99.9% of us not involved.

You're not the only culprit, but for better or for worse, you've become the spokesperson for the complainers on this issue. So far, watching this unfold has been like watching children whine when mommy does something they consider unfair but that is ultimately harmless in the long run. Please go back to fueling Techmeme with interesting tech news and take your personal frustrations offline with Google directly.

If Google marginally screws something up with a small subset of the businesses it serves, I'm guessing the general response from the non- tech elite is going to be "meh." Now, if Google were to screw something up for the real users of Google+ (i.e., the 99.9%), then we'd have a problem worthy of such attention!
