      OR next week...they should still make a bowl game.

      Wondering what the answer to BBB's question this week as to why doesn't DKos get no respect? Look no further than the top of the RL....Is that like a mass drunk on a Saturday???

      •  One reason is that as long as ridiculous stuff (2+ / 0-)

        like that is on the front page (albeit over in the right margin), it will be a source of amusement rather than information. Remember when the Nephew scandal was consuming the rec list? People must have thought the site was a soap opera. Hell, it was!

        The sad thing is that the new Tweeted Diary™, which was embraced during the election cycle, is now the only thing we see and people who have actual interesting diaries about history or science or political perspectives or life stories are ignored. I could not imagine writing a diary about anything that I actually cared about and tossing it into the maelstrom to be picked over by people, the majority of whom appear to have the attention spans of 2 year olds ... and the gotcha-mindset of middle schoolers. I am just as guilty with the short attention span: I rec a bunch of stuff as courtesy recs and don't even read much anymore.

        Maybe it is election fatigue or post-election analysis fatigue but there is less and less of interest here these days.

        I will probably detach more now that I don't have to have a daily presence. Maybe I will be like an owl, showing up only at night to watch quietly.
