The Verge is really against IE :( (Updated)
In a recent Facebook post about IE9 needing patches(see http://on.fb.me/OdiYdF), the Verge wrote this:
"Easiest patch of all: just don't use IE9"
What, exactly, have The Verge got against IE??
Update: There has been a reply from Joshua Topolsky himself!
"Hey guys — just so you know this was a joke made in poor taste by one of our interns, who has been reprimanded. We don’t hate IE. In fact, we recently added some IE9-friendly functions to make for a better experience. We’ve removed both posts, because they were stupid. Sorry to get anyone’s feathers ruffled."
So everything's sorted now. Thanks for sorting things out The Verge.
