@mkerrisk, I do think your article marked your opinions as opinions clearly. Elsewhere in the thread, there has been some discussion of journalism neutrality, whether it's a false notion, etc. I generally think most LWN pieces are opinion pieces, and I just feel it's important to make it clear that they are. I think LWN is a great publication nonetheless. I enjoy reading all the opinions stated here :).
Many of us in the USA are raised to believe that journalism is somehow neutral. I think others who have noted the fallacies of that notion have good points. I admit that I grew up in the USA so I have a cultural expectation to see news as neutral and opinions labeled specifically as such. But that's just a cultural convention, admittedly, but I've got that cultural convention wrapped up in what I think of when I see the word “journalism”.
Anyway, your article was indeed well-researched, and I've already stated elsewhere in the thread where I disagree with some of your opinions.
