I'm not sure I agree with you unless I'm misunderstanding the point of what you mean by what the parent said that was "extremely esoteric".

The point seems to be that we are reading a story about hacker news and someone takes issue with what appears to be an example of lazy journalism.

I could find my own examples in the article. Right off the top there are only quotes from PG and tptacek when it would have been really easy to email other users and get some thoughts to round out the story. (Not to mention the fact that it left out a fairly important point - that tptacek has the most karma on HN other than PG).
