Reuters has taken notice of Dear Raed, the Iraqi-based weblog mentioned occasionally on MeFi.
Figured this would be better in the gray than on the blue, party because it's about MeFi itself and partly because it might be construed as self-refrencing: MetaFilter was recently mentioned in a Wired News article about this thread on referral log spam. I was quoted; because she used names and not handles I was wondering if anyone else was, or if she contacted anyone else about this and they didn't respond. Furthermore, do MeFites get contacted by reporters a lot/ at all? Is there a standard protocol for these reporters' questions? (which, looking back, I'm now hoping I didn't violate)
