  •  I wish the title (7+ / 0-)

    for this diary was different. I clicked to read it perturbed that the title was so aggressive, hostile that I wanted to skip over it instead. I didn't because as an inlander I thought I should try to learn something about oyster growing on the coast.

    It's a very informative diary, but I still wish the title could compel readers without the hostility to progressives it bears now.  Maybe something "it's a trap" instead of "STFU" to grab attention instead.

    I don't expect the writer to change the title, just hope everyone will think about how to use powerful language other than swearing to get folks to pay attention when we have something important to say.

    •  The title also misrepresents the diary (3+ / 0-)

      The diary is not primarily a criticism of progressives (unless I read it wrong), it is the very bad precedent the oyster farm would be.

      I almost skipped reading it, and I still won't rec it with the offending acronym in the title.
