While I cant verify this story, it is sad that Bloggers feel they are a new entity to be reckoned with. We are used to having Rabbanim, Poskim, Askanim appointeed by the community and now we have Bloggers. They feel like a fifth wheel that must be listened and paid attention to. Most of us bloggers know our place and no matter how many hits and page views or likes on facebook we have, we are ordinary poshuter yidden. There are a lot of good things in blogging and many bad things about it too.
It doesn't end with bloggers. Same goes to the owners and editors of major Jewish websites who are all anonymous, of course preaching to the masses as if they are the gedolim of this generation. No matter the fame, power and influence that blooggers and website owners may have, we must know that in klal yisroel we only listen to rabbonim and leaders of communities. People that learned in yeshivos that worked on themselves, not someone who is busy getting followers on Twitter or likes on Facebook.
