Webdiary unveils its new zero tolerance comments policy:
Any comment that contains anywhere within it any commentary – explicit or implied – on the intelligence or honesty of another Webdiarist, will simply not be published. Following specific complaints, comments that refer to other Webdiarists by nickname or any other name than that which they use themselves will also not be published. Notwithstanding our preference against removing published material, we will also remove anything that slips through that is reasonably complained about by the target of a comment …
Some of you write stream-of-consciousness stuff that needs a spell-check and extensive repunctuation to make it comprehensible to others: from here on, if it’s too much work, we simply don’t publish it.
Stream-of-consciousness stuff that needs a spell-check and extensive repunctuation? Sounds like Webdiary’s entire archives. Also feeling the pressure, our society-reshaping pals at Daily Kos:
Just a quick reminder as the media nip at our heels —
We didn’t get here because of them.
They can praise us, they can trash us, they can ignore us, and ultimately none of that will matter as long as we keep doing what we’ve been doing.
Whether we succeed or not will depend on our own efforts. Not those of anyone else.
That’s the spirit. Down with infidels!
UPDATE. James Waterton: “Notice the new addition to the sidebar? ‘Webdiary Currently Has Funds In Hand To Keep Going To: 26th July’. Interesting to see how that works out.”
