RWN's 'you suck' post

Over the year and a half that I've been actively involved in blogging, I've seen and written a lot of "blogging help" posts. The bloggers that have been around a while are usually willing to help new bloggers find their feet because they know what the newbies are going through. The easiest way to do that is with helpful recommendations posts. I can't say that I've ever seen it done the way Right Wing News did it today, though. John Hawkins writes something of a "you suck" post on how not to do things. Call it tough love or negative-positive reinforcement, but it certainly is unusual. For most newbies who actually want to learn something and not have your ego broken right off the bat, I don't think I'd recommend it.
