Tony, thanks for the comment, and linking the piece. It’s a thoughtful and illuminating look at a huge and burgeoning swath of writing.

I think that the pieces that I wrote about struck me not because I don’t buy the story (though I don’t). Rather, the story involves explicit and implicit disrespect for many, many people. When the mode of selling involves belittling others, I don’t care how good the advice is — I see a need for sharp critique.
