Shit HN says
When discussion of an idea or product takes you to HN think twice. I was reading around and stumbled across the original "Show HN: dropbox"
My YC app: Dropbox - Throw away your USB drive (getdropbox.com)

that's a bit of old news there at your link.... care to elaborate as to exactly what your complaint is
Read some of the comments. Most of them are in the line of: "such an stupid idea".
Many comments are positive. Some are asking good questions and bowing out after getting answers. There's one typical "I can just setup FTP server on my linux" guy, but other than that, I don't see a great concentration of WTF in that thread.
Other historical comment threads:
Or "I have a USB, stupid!" There are plenty, but sure, there are also interesting/positive ones.
Your Drop Box includes your own Secretary who Files and Photocopies Every Document You Make or Edit, So You Can See What Each Document Looked Like Yesterday, Two Days Ago, or at Any Point In Time. Did I Mention the Secretary and the File Cabinet are Fire-Proof and Wireless?
To be fair, that is one silly pitch.
His pitching coach has some words of wisdom.
