The rationality of why it's better for them to be in New York is probably the most enlightening part. Clearly they need to be based in a place free from a hostile culture that's focused on image and wealth. Can't have their hard hitting journalism be stifled.
There is A LOT of dumb money. There ARE a ton of idiot startupbro/princesses.
Anything to deflate the delusional silliness bubbling up here is probably a good thing in the long run.
The HN hivemind loves to rally against the stuffy culture of the corporate world. Are the rapgenius bros any better?

IDK. Digging up people's private lives is not cool (e.g. valleywag's articles about Eric's open marriage), but pointing out blatant douchiness is admirable. We need more of that shit to keep us all in line (e.g. Sandberg's unpaid intern fuckup - which let's be honest is fucking disgusting).
Enough toeing the line brah.
tabloid writer assholes aren't just for hollywood now I guess.
