Are You Married? Have Kids? [TM]

Bruce Tate has done it all... Not only did he write meaningless titles such as "Better Faster Lighter Java" and "Beyond Java", which I believe will be a popular series, next up is "Beyond RoR".

Reading this TSS thread Java: Dead Like COBOL, Not Like Elvis?, I was thinking 'Fine, so there are people who likes one technology over another. Though I think Bruce Tate is the type of person who tend to sell hypes, there's always N sides of the coin, people need to make some money.

Fine.

I appreciate Bruce Tate's responses within the thread, until I read this sentence directed to Hani: Are you married? Have kids? which he repeated once. Holy crap, he writes not only cheap hypes, but also cheap attacks. Bruce, if you don't want your kids to read anything bad when they google your name, use some internet filter software, the same way you want to protect them from p0rn.

What do you think comes up when Bill Gates' kids google for "Bill Gates" and "idiot" or "evil" or "satan"?

It's the price of fame, no matter what field you are in, there will always be some haters. I don't like Hani's writing that much, but at least calling you an idiot is still relevant, while you're asking about his family is very irrelevant!

Do you think it doesn't matter if his parents read about the writings of Hani-haters? (believe me, there are plenty of them). What about his little nieces/nephews?
There will always be some people whom you don't want them reading bad stuff about you, not only kids.
