If you follow me on Twitter or know my background, you probably noticed that I like politics. Anyone who follows politics long enough sees that issues that captivate the news cycle are often more complicated than a single pass can comprehend. Some of the backlash or shallow promotion of growth hacking looks a lot like political discussions on cable TV, inane premises and shallow argumentation.
I am not very interested in continuing to rehash whether growth hacking exists or not. It does. Look at the original growth community. Their track record speaks for itself. To me, a more interesting subject of discussion is why some are denying the growth hacking movement despite its palpable benefit to the startup and business community.
