Matt interviewed by Derek Powazek. October 28, 2001 3:54 AM   Subscribe

For Newbies(and the odd Oldie too): Here's some good and timely advice from Derek Powasek's Conversation with Matt Haughey, back when MetaFilter only had 2000+ members. It's probably been posted before, but will be new to many of us late-comers.. In fact, it should be read along with the guidelines, IMO(it certainly chastised me...). A good chaser is a link from the About page here at MeFi, where you get Powazek discussing Metafilter.
Food for thought, to say the least: how important are original and innovative links? Very.

hey, some of us just read the pieces, went "hmmm, interesting" (as MC obviously did) and/or "wow, I'd forgotten about that" (as I did - I remember reading the first a few months back), and continued on our Sunday, with more thoughts in our heads than before.

This snarky thing has got to stop.

--well, it was a perfectly decent amd positive post and there were no comments for an hour and a half--Jeez, you're a tougher audience over here...

This bothered me and no fuliginous flapdoodle about the snarkiness of it of all will obscure this fact: sometimes the cage must be rattled.

THE Bellman looked uffish, and wrinkled his brow.
"If only you'd spoken before!
It's excessively awkward to mention it now,
With the Snark, so to speak, at the door!
