The post was probably inspired by his personal experience with public scrutiny. "Mock Mark" has a field day poking fun at Cuban on his blog, and although he's not making money since he moved the site, he used to make some through AdSense -- and may again down the road. Whether Mock Mark makes money or not, isn't it a tad hypocritical to take it personally when business itself depends on the exploitation of vulnerabilities? Finding a competitor's weakness and capitalizing on that; identifying the consumer's wants and fears, and striking where they're deepest -- doesn't it all come down to exploiting vulnerability in the end?
