Paying either well or on time is frankly depressingly rare in freelancing of any kind.

I'm actually inclined to view trolling on the subject of climate change as worse than good-faith idiocy. At least the idiots believe they're doing good, whereas someone who accepts that we're in the process of inducing a potential extinction event is knowingly and intentionally causing harm. "Deliberately contributing to unnecessary death and suffering on a massive scale" must be pretty close to the definition of evil, if the word means anything.

Orlowski wrote a fundamentally flawed and misleading article on the recent Orphan Works copyright reforms, which led to no end of fuss as photographers and artists were conned into believing that HMG was about to abolish copyright in their work. He previously came within a hairs-breadth of seriously libelling a friend of mine, although of course since he writes from the safe haven of the USA their was no prospect of recourse. The man is wilfully vile, and I refuse to have anything to do with El Reg so long as he writes for it.

That man is a whole different can of worms. And I apologise for libelling worms.
