Who? Oh, Mr. Waxy.org. I'm not really up on who blogs what (no snark intended, I just don't pay attention). (And on preview, it seems like I'm not alone)

And on a bit of a linguistic nitpicking, he noted that about 20% of his links were no longer living, and called it "link rot" - I'd call link rot what happens when sites are no longer paid for / maintained, and fall off the face of the 'net. Youtube videos pulled for DMCA reasons is more of a social vs legal clash, in my mind.

There's a misspelling of "Baio" in the title, post, and tags. You're consistent!

At the risk of this becoming too incestuous, hello! More of my YouTube favorites here, and I usually post the best stuff to Waxy.

filthy light thief: Jakob Neilsen coined the term linkrot broadly as links that originally worked but are now broken. Not all the YouTube videos were pulled for copyright reasons, but even so, I'd say it's still a form of linkrot.

And for my own nitpick, it's Baio, not "Biao." Chachi spells his last name the same way as I do, but there's no relation, as far as I know.

Oh, how you must have to also put up with "Charles in Charge" jokes all of you life.

Whoops! Sorry about that. Thanks for correcting the typos.

I've always been a fan of consistency in spelling since First grade when the teacher chided me on inconsistent misspellings...
