Here's a lovely email I just got about my Icons Blog Post. Signed by a real person, to. Drink it in.
"Yet pointless. Iconography is something that is studied, at length,
by smart people who understand how to communicate.
You obviously don't understand the field because if you did you would
not be saying such inane things in a desperate grab to get ink.
"Old People Icons" You know what, f*&*k you. I was writing assembler
code before you were born you little ageist bastard.
Please try and stick to something your allegedly good at like writing
really shitty code for the idiots in Redmond, ok?"
