The trick is to say something mildly contentious in your first comment, so you're justified in leaving several more in the thread and don't look like you're simply padding.

See, this is what's wrong with discourse on metatalk. People don't argue substance, they just sling labels around.

I would presume he would have the disposition to digest 400,000 comments before tossing another in the pond? No? Damn.

So? Nu, it's a race to 10,000?

It's not as if delmoi posted this thread, claiming his laurels.

Belittle his posting style if you want (and it is kind of ad hoc), but delmoi's one reason people keep coming back to your site, Matt.

I joined three days before delmoi and just posted my 2,000th comment. I would have said that was borderline excessive; now I feel like a lazy slacker.

You know, there was a time I was sure Miguel would never be dethroned from his perch atop the Contribution Index.

Well, it's all changed now, has it not, all these young pups, all full of themselves, yapping away, about any triviality you can think of, fuckin' little whippersnappers, disgusting it is, breeding like maggots, commenting like there's no tomorra on anything that passes their way, like fuckin' experts, they are, always full of the snark and the time of day and the latest fad - I ask you sir, languagehat my friend (for you are one of the truly knowledgeable, of sound mind and rod), is it any wonder these new fellas tot up ten thousand comments as soon as look at you? What's the fuckin' world coming to - and the Metafilter with it - I ask you?

(Mind you, that delmoi boy, he's not one of the worst, so all the best to him, fair enough - though there's not an ounce of respect in any bone of his body, sure there isn't, damn the little bastard.)

So, like, does Miguel read MeTa every day looking for comments about himself? That's kind of weird. Or maybe somebody e-mails Miguel whenever he's mentioned? It's like the second coming of Kibo or something.
posted by Mid at 11:49 AM on November 9, 2006


How far Miguel has come from the guy who sent me a reply in broken, barely intelligible english when I noticed he'd linked to one of my sites on hes newspaper blog those years ago. You'd hardly guess that english isn't his first language when you read his comment from today.

Hey Miguel, someone (you?) should really fix your Wikipedia entry. Frankly, it's a mess.

I do admit that during one of delmoi's more frantic days it does seem as if every post on the front page ends with the sentence "So, delmoi, what's your opinion?"

Hey vacapinta, I helped out with the wikipedia page you had issues with, in part so I was fully justified in saying 'Why couldn't you do it yourself?'. And I wasn't confident enough to change "chronics " to comics, although I assume it must mean that. Could you fix that for me?
