Fair, but then just don't read it. This is a problem that goes far beyond clothing. But ask the newspapers, you aren't putting that genie back in the bottle.
It does require that people's bullshit-meters be a bit more finely tuned than before when there were barriers of entry to folks who weren't "experts". But let's not forget that a lot of good has come out of the popularization of self-publishing (and I use that term very broadly to include blogs, forums, twitter, facebook, etc). This forum would not exist otherwise.

Seems OP is into thrifting and what not. Could example of a blog on this is oregetix or whatever his name is. Most of his stuff is thrifted, but it fits well.
This here is constructive criticism and is totally fair game. I'm not saying don't criticize the man--clearly, there is a lot of bad stuff on that blog. But just saying "lol this guy sux, stay away from teh intarwebz n00b" does not contribute to anything positive.
