Tech Crunch Wannabe Startupsnigeria strikes again!

Who really is Startups Nigeria? Is this a Tech CrunchWannabe site. I must say I was intrigued as first by the site alas now not so much; what I also find fascinating is the fact that the site is HIGHLY SELECTIVE on comments shown on it's comments section. Definitely not a techcrunch style which allows general comments but it is a start (will reserve my comments).

TECH CRUNCH US VS OBASANJO'S SON! A MUST READ!

Image
The Prickly Prince From Microsoft Strikes Again by Michael Arrington on October 12, 2008 Dare Obasanjo, a Microsoft employee and the son of a former President of Nigeria, doesn’t like it when people disagree with him. I found that out in 2007 when Obasanjo vandalized the TechCrunch Wikipedia page in response to a post we wrote that was mildly critical of Microsoft’s hiring of a blogger to edit certain Wikipedia entries relating to Open Office standards. His actions as an individual and as a representative of Microsoft were outrageous. Today he writes a post accusing us of “encouraging…garbage” on TechCrunch because we’ve reported on the market fall over the last week, pointing to three examples (out of over 100 posts last week) where we chronicle the fall of Yahoo and Google stock, and the Seesmic layoffs . A number of other blogs jumped on the bandwagon, calling for the negativity to stop (obviously none of these writers read TechCrunch this
