The Filter. Or maybe just The Ter. August 4, 2009 12:06 PM   Subscribe

In honor of the wave of rebrandings including "The Shack", "The Hut" (blog self-link) and "The Nick" (which is not really how it's being rebranded but OP had to make a joke), can we now just call this site "The Filter"? After all, the Internet was long ago shortened to "The Net" and the World Wide Web to "The Web". Right?
...signed, "The Dell"

Of course, our Fearless Leader must now be "The Owie", with his sidekicks "The Myn", "The Ex", "The B" and "The Pinta". This part of the site will be "The Talk", with "The Ask", "The Music" and "The Projects". Feel free to call dibs on your own shortened names here or offer up anything else that needs a 21st Century Rebranding. I'm used to this; when I had a blog called "One Swell Foop", I was frequently referred to as "The Foop". (

I think I speak for all of us when I say no.

Go home, Dad, you're drunk.
