I mentioned this discussion, using a neutral tone, on the Microformats
wiki. Here's how the description has been re-written, by the wiki's
"final arbiter":


Summary: criticism is nearly all from
[http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/ Jukka "Yucca" Korpela] who
believes ridicule (he uses the term "microbabble") is a valid
method of criticism. His critiques are thus mostly ignorable,
though if you dig deep and ignore his rhetoric you can find a
few points we can use to improve microformats.
