In defense of Product Hunt

Yesterday I wrote a post in support of Product Hunt, which had been maligned by a discontent hunter. This gentleman was positing that Product Hunt is exclusive, secretive, and had plenty of insider "tricks" --those assertions wouldn't have been far off, if it hadn't been for his tone: he was writing himself as savior, and the Product Hunt team as an eval cabal.

So I struck back with an overly snarky post, "How to write a Product Hunt “exposé” for fun and profit". Today I woke up with a feeling of mild regret for having been rather vitriolic myself. I just wanted to defend Ryan and Ben and Corley and all the amazing people who are on, or have been on that team. I know that they take such criticism very much to heart.

Next time I will try to be less harsh, and more humorous.
