This article is a perfect example of what's wrong with the current state of internet "journalism", where anyone can write anything on any topic, without any accountability, without any compelling qualifications, and apparently without having done even the minimal research that any self-respecting journalist would do. No interviews, not a single quote from anyone other than the author's own narcissistic inner-monologue, and nothing to suggest that he put any effort into understanding the "beard culture" he so readily ridicules. Perhaps the only crowd more insulted by this lazy, masturbatory article than the event's organizers and attendees are the real victims, your readers, who wasted their time on the self-indulgent musings of a pretentious wallflower who didn't take his assignment seriously.
