Cortex, I'm protesting your deletion of PSmealey's Killing Joke FPP
. I thought it was very worthwhile regardless of the fact that PS decided to post the Wiki piece on the band. Methinks this is perhaps a case of a too itchy trigger finger, no?

A dozen or so youtube
day of blog churn? Just fine.
Three SSRN links in two days to thoughtful and academic writing that are new and interesting and that most users have never seen before? Deleted.

Small text doesn't mitigate excessive length
, karl. It exacerbates it, by making ALL THAT harder to read. What? Are you trying to make less work for those of us who will scroll past it
? If you want to be read, leave your Iraq links + editorializing legible and stop pretending they don't take up as much space as they do.

Why the complaints all the time?
As is often the case, people seem to prefer pointing out errors and criticizing fpps to a discussion of the material. This was not a lazy fpp, I contend. What can be done to discourage complainers? I admit that my approach to the complaints in this thread was not ideal.

I'm confused. I posted
what I thought was a typical interesting link, but I guess it didn't pass muster, since it was dumped. What gives?
(I linked to it from my K5 diary
. Now I have cleanup there to do.)

Why is a post about someone having sex with a goat not worthy of discussion. The story had everything - intrigue, surpise, excitement, passion, shock, and much more. I know why it was delete - because mat thought it was 'sophmoric' to post something like that - well I didn't post it in a sophmoric manner, I posted it because it is a very interesting story. I have never heard of anything like it in my life. It makes me wonder whether you even bother to read past the headline before cracking the sensorship whip.

There seems to be a lot of bickering going on lately, and it's getting worse all the time. Too many people are starting to complain about other peoples posting habits, style whatever you want to call it. I'm Australian and don't care about Americas elections, yet i haven't complained about all the posts, about the election. I choose to ignore them as should other people with any posts they don't like or don't want to talk about.
