But some people are ranters, that's just their style. Especially if the same criticisms are thrown at him, and the person throwing them is ignorant.
Also, whether he does it angerly or not, the way he rants in no way takes away from the validity of the points he's making. Someone who is calm and rational could lie through their teeth, but it would be a shame if that person was believed over the guy ranting and raving and bringing up facts.
Again, I'm not questioning the validity, I'm questioning the image he projects. He's one of the public faces of a (supposedly) growing company, who spends his time angrily refuting bloggers that don't really matter at all. It's not a good use of his time, and he looks like an insecure jerk, even though he's technically in the right. In this instance, the correct response would have been to ignore the no-nothing gnat, and go on doing your business. That's how an executive acts. They don't go on spittle flecked rants over every little slight.
He's also human, and seems to love confrontation though. Not only that, but sometimes not responding to some ridiculous accusation can have some people believe that the accusation is true. Or, if you respond to it once, and people still keep bringing it up, or they don't believe you, or whatever. There is a really good example of this, but it violates the political discussion rules. I'm not a big fan of what the public would think. It's on his facebook, and he's refuting misinformation about a company he's apart of, I'm sure he's not going to have any problems because of it, especially if higher ups know the type of person he is. Besides, anything can be spun in any direction, so no matter what Eric does, he's screwed. If he doesn't answer, then he has no response, if he does, especially in the way he does, he's a jerk. So, I guess due to his personality, he'll respond, and take people calling him a jerk who goes after every little thing.
