This Adam Yauch obit post
was much better than this one
. Lutoslawski took the time to do it right, tracking down context and supplementary links, instead of just a quick blurb. But his post was deleted, because he was three minutes too slow.
Enough with first past the post. Doesn't quality count? I mean, it's three minutes
, and a much better post, but you rewarded the crappy, fast poster instead.
I always thought this place was about 'best of the web', and it really irks me when taking some actual time for context is rendered useless.
