Hi Mike, I usually do get frustrated and feel more pessimistic when reading Techdirt, but I don't get the feeling that you're pessimistic yourself. If anything, you just sound disappointed at most of the news, but there's always that glimmer of hope.
It may just be the hazards of reporting news of this nature. A barrage of bad news can have the effect of making you appear as a pessimist, though I feel there's always that glimmer of hope in your posts.. :)
Keep up the good work!
