@jws That's sort of funny. Compared to mainstream press, the story written by the lone blogger winds up with a headline that more accurately reflects the content of the story (even if said contents are crazy).
@clarkgoble I think we all have. I certainly have, and twitter sort of begs for it. All of our social media technology has been built with "engagement" as the prime directive, in keeping with the underlying business models. Engage now, read later (or not).
@clarkgoble I'm not surprised. A couple of my sites were mentioned in Slashdot back in the day. I determined that about 15-20% of people who _wrote comments about my sites_ had actually followed the links and seen the sites.
@clarkgoble Indeed. It's pretty staggering that in 2016 they still don't handle duplicate removal in a painless fashion. Software feature prioritization has been a real issue for them in the past few years.
