That Forbes Thing

Via that insta-fellow, Bill Quick comments on a heavy-handed Forbes piece that all but pleads for strong regulation (if not outright governmental registration) of blogs:
Who cares? As usual, this chunk of bunk is hidden behind a big fat registration process, so nobody who matters is going to read it anyway.
Yes and no, I think. Thanks to the Godsend that is Bugmenot, I'm sure many people that matter will read the piece without bothering to wade through a silly registration process. I'm also fairly certain that, to the extent those folks matter, they will not be particularly helpful to Forbes' rather illiberal agenda.
