I've been abstaining on weekends for a while-
partly from being busy but mostly cuz of the low traffic-
though it does seem to have picked up a bit lately...

I'm really annoyed by the fact that you can't respond to comments on Facebook because they aren't threaded. It's designed for drive-by narcississm, not dialogue. I'm annoyed by the limitations of the updates, I'm annoyed that it doesn't have a built-in blog feature. I find it wildly annoying in all aspects except promotion of events, which works better than these other forums.

The problem is, I have only so much time to connect with readers, and my audience on Facebook and Twitter is like 80,000. Here it's somewhat smaller.


Stuff changes. I thought MySpace was a good thing, because it got way, way more readers for my blog. Facebook and Twitter basically killed my desire to write blogs because, while they connected me to more readers, there was no way to have a dialog about any issue. And so, so many people don't get it.

ya know… ken could hook you up with a little addon script dealy that fits seamlessly into your blog app that you click the button and it automatically updates to FB and Twitter simultaneously so you could lure the FBTwit crowd into actual discussion on da blog. Wink

That's easy, just put your status on everything as
"Back at the boardello & blogging" & disable the comments-
that'll teach them! Twisted Evil

I dunno... there's just something about vampires I don't trust. Even if they're avid nipple twisters...

How ironic that you Mr. Moore would claim an interest in dialog here in the political section. Why if I recall correctly, just a scant two years ago you vehemently told me to leave because I had the audacity to post that Mr. Obama would just be a continuation of the last regime.

The treatment of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the reinstatement of Gitmo tribunals, continued presence in Iraq, an escalation of 30K troops in Afghanistan (plus who knows how many "contractors" i.e. mercenaries). And let's not forget that it was Mr. Obama's Justice Department that recommended the law firm Hunton & Williams to Bank of America when the bank first became concerned over potential Wikileaks exposure.

But I'm just a dumb ass raining on everybody's parade, so I'll take my leave again.
