Your post itself was entirely fair, and the improvements to the profiler were great. It is only the title of this posting that I take issue with. If the title had been "280 North makes WebKit's JavaScript Profiler Useful!" I don't think it would be any less dramatic and would have been a lot less contentious. It can be a little irksome knowing that someone put a huge amount of work into the profiling infrastructure in JavaScriptCore and the UI in the web inspector while the title, and the dozens of tweets it spawned, imply that is all 280 North's doing.

We're all better off if we focus on doing great things and set the sensationalism aside. Thanks again for the contributions to WebKit, and I hope there are more going forwards!
