Metafilterian demonstrates blatant ignorance of blogging A-list. He finds "someone named Meg Hourihan" to be "very condescending." I've taken my share of shots at the A-list in the past, but this post made me sad. Has the gulf between Metafilter and the weblogging community grown too wide? Are we better off with fewer inter-blog memes, or losing the center in the widening gyre?

Another MetaFilter reference, but this time there seems to be some kind of time travel involved:
"Another community in which I reside is the Metafilter / Blogger Developers / A-List community. The pillars of this community include Jason Kottke, Meg Hourihan, Evan Williams and Cam Barrett. These bloggers do most of their discussions on Metafilter and generally have beautiful blogs. I am not sure if any of them would list me as a member of their community, but I don't think that they would kick me out if they knew I had joined."
Just as a matter of interest ... are the hit rates for member profiles stored anywhere? Any chance of a league table? Wouldn't that end the debate about who is actually A-list?

(all a-listers with birthdays will be mentioned here)
What is this about? There's nowhere to put my birthday when I click on "customize" so I can't help but conclude this is a service only tailored to an elite cadre of metafilter users. But what should I expect ... I've never been on an "a-list" in my life.
