Interesting link or Googlebomb?
posted by straight to Etiquette/Policy at 9:20 AM (22 comments total)

Is this an interesting post about Savage's attempt to boost a word's pagerank, or an attempt to use Metafilter to boost a word's pagerank? I'm not necessarily dissing this post in particular, but I can see potential for abuse here: "Howard Dean is attempting to boost his pagerank for the word 'Democrat' by calling on bloggers everywhere to link to his page! What do you think?"

All of the above.
I don't think a Dean supporter would be that crass, but I am suspicious that the Who Wants to Marry Kucinich Thread was actually trying to recruit female MeFites to enter the competition.

Maybe the Kucinich thread was also targeted at male MeFi members. How would Santorum feel about that, I wonder?

There ARE no female MeFites, silly. This is the internet.

I was bored by the Dan Savage angle, but I liked the topic overall, especially the prospect of discussing Rick Santorum's "Man-on-dog sex" lunatic comments at length.

I'd watch it if I were you, rush. Here's what happened to the diner employee who told madamjuju that if she was in such a hurry, why didn't she fix her own breakfast?

Ventriloquism, yes, and you know my dummy...

Hey, nice vacuum cleaner, scody. Clean here often?

wendell and Miguel both seem to know about madamjujujive's school of discipline.
posted by madamjujujive at 5:42 AM on November 22, 2003

Yes, madamjjj, but Spike Lee has sued over the use of the phrase "spike heels"...

And, thank you, taz, I needed that.
Unfotunately, right now I'm suffering through a middle-aged crush over scody, since she revealed she grew up knowing Animation God Chuck Jones... sigh...

Well, Wendell, we are neighbors... so the next time you're in Miracle Mile, you can come on up and thee my etchingth thomtime, thailor. [/Daffy]
