When a leak hits, you see interesting reactions: Sour Grapes vs Whiners vs Enthusiasts!

Lumia EmeraldSo, I am forced to write this, as I just encountered a third kind of reaction yesterday, other than Whiners and enthusiasts kind of reactions, we usually see. This reaction looks like of “Sour grapes” kind. What this means is when you are not the first to report the leak, you try your level best to paint it as “Fake” or “Hoax”.

You may run a successful blog, but that shouldn’t make you undermine other bloggers, because others are successful too and frankly none gives a shit to what you think or write. Anyways, humility is a rare virtue nowadays, but when you have an internet presence, try to be polite when interacting with your own kinds.

Now, coming to covering leaks and rumors, even the largest of media portals do it and from my blogging experience, I can confirm that leaks and rumors don’t make more than 5-10% of a successful blog traffic. So, why anyone covers them? Because, they are interesting and we will certainly cover them going forward. And, you will also see “Sour Grapes” kind of bloggers covering them too, when they get it first and they will assign some hypocrite rating for their accuracy.

    You mean WPCentral right?! f*** those cocky SOBs.
    It’s rather distasteful the way they shut the leak down, like they are microsoft’s official news channel and have a direct line to Joe Belfiore’s cell phone number.
    They do this all the time, when they see a leak making waves and they aren’t the source, they get butt hurt.
    Keep doing what your doing. Good work.
    We behind you 830%

      Sure, we’ll keep doing what we do and as we wrote in length above, we hardly care about those with agendas 🙂

    • Lol I submitted a few , and links to them as news sources and not one has been published yet. Seems they want to be anti-competitive.

    Also, the hit/miss ratio for your leaks, dear Kamal are very good as far as I can witness… One can even witness for you and swear for the veracity of your leaks.
    Take care.

    • Kamal

      But I will certainly like to review my “hits and misses”. anyways, thanks for the nice comment 🙂

    Daniel Rubino @ Windows Phone Central… typical hypocrite… he uses a Mac and calls himself a “respectable windows enthusiast”…
    Kamal you’ve got the real Daniel Rubino on that “article”, When they don’t get the info first, they trash it as fake/hoax… but the truth is when you have some SERIOUS INSIDER, you can’t allow him/her to be busted.
    Daniel Rubino has more ties to CrApple than windows and his so called “reliable sources” are non existent…
    I was banned once from that site, the excuse “trolling”, that another way to say, to talk crap about Daniel Rubino or Apple, yeah, my comment was about the flaws Apple and Dan Rubino have.
    He gave me the boot… for telling the truth, how pathetic for them…
