This is actually a great case study on how to make a viral blog post that will get reposted again and again. Some other ideas:

You forgot "Should designers code?"
Sounds like the timeline from thenextweb. You forgot, to add to every second post this post originally appeared on [bla]
Great link. Love it.
Sometimes I think the aim of this type of articles is to gain notoriety, same thing they complain about dribbble people with pixel perfect designs ... it's sort of funny... and sad
You know what my solution was to the problem?
I just don't visit dribbble often anymore, I know that there is great product designer out there in the trenches that do all the "non-fancy" work that you will not get likes for. Flows, user tests etc, that make sure that a product works great.
If I go to dribbble from time to time, I just don't assume anymore that most people who post there "unusable" (in some degree) shots, just care for the likes or do it as their own little practice.
Dribbble for designers is the same as medium for writers. Streamlined consumption of content.
But I agree with everything in the article.
It's been posted here many, many times but it's still as relevant today as it was two years ago.
I never used Dribbble, a lot of other design sites with examples of actual working products are far better as inspiration imo.
This really resonated with me and laid out many of the problems I have with the current design culture. I also really appreciated that they offered solutions to these problems.
