In my business, and in the business of instiutional investing - one is all too often tongue tied by some type of confidentiality / market restriction associated with a pending event. Well it was with absolute hysterics that i came across this TW*T In the most recent piece of verbals he once again singles out Guy Kawasaki for some side splitting abuse. Now i dont know guy from adam - had one conversation with him 2 years ago on a deal - and if he is plagarizing or thieving his material thats one thing - and i do cast a somewhat skeptic glance at VC's who take on teacher/student persona - the waft of 'holier than thow' is all too transparent in this day and age - but i am happy to say that publicly and in the same breath humbly as his achievements do - somewhat precede him - and i say those things only from my personal experiences, nothing else. But Guy will probably tell you he is attempting to provide genuine assistance to people who want what he has. this chap on the other hand, casts his view from a pulpit called private equity??? brilliant! you are the most perfect representation of a PE stereotype i know. Your not anonymous - you are 50% of the VP's at the MM buyout firms i deal with daily. In fact i was in your offices just yesterday.

Pretty sure equity private is female.
It seems as though you read this post (http://equityprivate.typepad.com/ep/2006/04/just_copypaste_.html) Here she mentions needing midol. Again, http://equityprivate.typepad.com/ep/2006/03/the_bono_of_bas.html
Here she refers to herself as a finance girl.

He/she likes cute bankers from the resume so probably a girl.

Well -

My point is that if you are going to put yourself out here, and critisize people repeatedly, then its my opinion that you need to do that in the context of a conversation.

Taking a one way approach to what is now widely accepted as a 2 way minimum is backward and within the context of the writing cowardly.

If you are going to blog - give the opportunity to respond.

Its a shame as other pieces by the writer i find informative.

You aren't interested int he conversation either - annoymous 3 word contribution. thanks
