Whoever wrote this should be fired, beaten and never allowed to write content ever again. Talk about taking a leak on all the guys n' gals who read his reviews...

Start at "At Winophilia we are not armchair tasters..."

Yes, that is an amazingly stupid way to get started.

As a wine salesman, I quickly learned never to sell your products by knocking the other products--just illustrate the attributes of yours.

They must have heard the chorus. I don't see the same "About" anymore. There is no section starting "we are no armchair tasters....." PW, you must have influence beyone compare [Image: smile.gif]

I wonder if he has deleted that section. I didn't find it from the home page link.

P.S. Generally the IWC opinions coincide more with my tastes than those of other critics.

Checked it this morning. Apparently he saw the heat and turned on the AC....

Its really not a big deal, but there is little room for ego in 15 second attention span within the world of the WWW.


- Thomas - 03-20-2010 09:04 AM

Yes, and he now illustrates their attributes without knocking the competition. Does Tanzer read this forum?

I know first hand there are a lot of people that read this forum, but don't comment. We a community of wine lovers so who wouldn't?

Eng,

Ever see him and me in the same room together? Rest my case...
