Why is Ken Rockwell untrustworthy?

I'm merely interested: can anyone tell me why Ken Rockwell is a punching bag? I was basing some purchases on Nikkor AIS glass on his reviews, but if he's untrustworthy, please let me know why. I mean, his photos are terrible, but that's a given for photo "experts" (e.g. getting paid for knowledge not for skill). I don't expect to go to the true artists for technical advice: they're too interested making art to do that primary research. Still, I do want someone technical to tell me how sharp a lens is, etc.

Secondarily, is there a good place for lens reviews of vintage glass?
