Metafilter: Get your own blog

"Get your own blog" is a stupid thing to say to a member of a site whose masthead reads "Community weblog." [more inside]

A grand experiment in this phenomenon

Is y2karl's compulsive 'make huge extract, link and run' behaviour a grand experiment in this phenomenon?

Is someone using Mefi as his own private soapbox?

Is someone using Mefi as his own private soapbox?

He has his opinions and that's great (even though I strongly disagree with a lot of them), but I don't think providing a platform for the Gospel According To Cleardawn was what matt had in mind.

How to deal with partisan posts on MeFi.

Metafilter is not Wikipedia. There's no expectation of neutrality here. So instead of telling the poster to get his own blog, why not read the links, then add more links and observations from your own perspective. That's why they call them comments.

google made me awesome

I know that lots of people love y2karl's posts, but when he damn near admits that his work is courtesy of Google, then we've moved beyond being the "best of the web" and into the realm of "you need your own blog".

The weight of agenda.

The weight of agenda. Can the burden not be borne on personal weblogs?

Opinions, not agenda

I humbly and publicly request a moratorium on referring to opinions as agendas. The linked thread is full of this. Not only does it stifle any sort of honest discussion, debate, or genuine and warranted insulting, it also seems slightly fascistic, Fox News-ish, and embarrassing.

anti-religious remarks belong on your own blog

It's all well and good for skallas to post his opinions on his own weblog, but couldn't he keep any anti-religious remarks out of his FPPs?

What do you think of editorializing and directing commentary?

What do you think of editorializing and directing commentary toward a discussion that the poster prefers? Particularly in the FPP text? (See Steven Den Beste's post.)
