    I'd like to encourage everyone to keep posting here, at least until the number of comments exceeds that for today's letter.

    No Schlitz, she actually did ask for advice a couple days prior to her going into chat. And I gave the same exact advice then as I did when she outed herself.

    I agree lilz its nice when you can have actual debates with people without being called a bully or being chastised because you disagree with someone.

    This is a pleasantly snark free conversation.

    I can't think of any point where this conversation has turned snarky.  Maybe some of us don't see things the same way (Butterflyz?) but we're all discussing it very rationally and respectfully.

    I would pity anyone who sees this as snarky, because they must be deeply insecure about themselves and their own arguments, which I'm sure are completely rational and well-informed.

    I know the blog hasn't always been the way it is now, but the biggest thing I wonder about is what possessed some of you people to think it would be a good idea to actually meet in person?

    I think this has petered itself out.  I has to get works done.  :(

    I think the blog is a fascinating study in internet psychology.

    (this is a sincere statement)

    Yeah I am not an after hours after hours, just like 6p. I dont have special capabilities to post after I leave the office.

    But she had come on and asked about what she should do about the situation. It was random and a bit weird.

    I certainly don't think this has been snarky, just the usual limitations of text based conversations. I do think that some of what I've said has not been taken the way it was intended and was taken away from the context of my first post, but eh, that's life.

    Butterflyz I wasn't saying you were snarky, I'm just pointing out an example of rational discourse due to a disagreement.

    I know that BDC is locked into Demand Media/Pluck ... however, I wish that the blog would have a "thumbs up/thumbs down" feature like articles in the Herald. At least that way the "community at large" gets to weigh in on a love/hate basis.

    Eddie, I think that's a good idea.  Or, what would really be nice is accountability to "recommends".  It would be nice to know who recommended what comment -- I bet there would be a huge drop in the number of recommends.

    Re: Some Thoughts on The Blog

    Chops, my town's little independent blog has a rating system (4-3-2-1-0) for comments, and each comment has a weighted rating average.  "Power users" (those who achieve a certain number of point ratings by other users) get an extra "bonus" feature of rating comments a "6" if it's awesome. You get to see who rated your comment, and what they rated it.  Works ok, but the blog is too small and too few people use the ratings to really provide a good picture of how it would work on a big, busy blog like this one.

    Just as a note, MoVa and others, if you call attention to a post that had an oopsie like that the situation is actually made worse.  Most lurkers wouldn't notice, but when you point it out......
