Can you give me a basic summary? I'm not sure I want to spend ten minutes on some guy rambling on without anything interesting to say.

He brings up how he reviewed Metallica's version of "When A Blind Man Cries", and how a commentor asked him what gave him the right to do it (review the song). He then says that he has the right to do what he wants when it comes to reviewing, and that no one has the right to call his opinions "wrong" or illegitimate. He decries hyperbole and negativity in online commenters, tells people not to watch negative reviews about records they like if they can't handle that, and exhorts online reviewers to stick to their guns opinions-wise, and not change them just cuz it isn't cool to dislike a certain record. I thought it'd be interesting to post it here, since I recently saw some online metal reviewers in this forum (and their supporters) complaining about online haters nay-saying the concept of them reviewing things.
