    Just mulling over this at the moment: "... to take up arms against a sea of Davids ..."

    I have occasionally noticed one of Markos' front page pieces climbing the rec list. I can't remember the last time I saw one of your delicately crafted masterpieces over there on the right. The front page scrolling waterfall of doom can't be climbed but moving from the craggy, unscrolled archives to the rec list does keep a diary in the spotlight longer. I'm often remiss in my rec-ing efforts around here.

    I've tried to do better lately.

    There is an odd discrepancy between your readership (your polls regularly receive thousands of votes. Last Monday's poll topped over 5,500) and the recs C&J accumulates. Not even all who tinkle their keyboards in the kiddie pool rec it. Front page diaries from you infinite mojo types rarely get many recs -- I think you and I were among the 5 or so recs for David Waldman's piece Monday morning (afternoon over here).

    I've no idea of how Markos and his technical crew have set up the algorithms that determine how many recs it takes to get a front page piece on the rec list but it seems to me that the bar is set much higher for you front-pagers.

    Anyway, I've been known to fiddle about with my diaries (correcting spelling and such) for quite awhile after posting and I don't have a thousandth of the diary load that you do or anything resembling a regular time slot. In other words, you've got my sympathies on the never-ending editing syndrome.

    At any rate you'll hear no complaints from me about the quality of the service around here. Just wish I could do more to support your efforts.
