    Pootie diaries aren't political, but they aren't meta. They are diaries about pooties. Music or book  diaries aren't political, nor meta. They are diaries about music or books.

    Meta is when we have diaries talking about how we are going to talk about things. Anything from "who's going to do the weekly diaires for our group for the next quarter", to "why I think the rating system sucks" etc.

    Some topical diaries do devolve into meta debates in at least some threads, though. Everybody humming along about their gun control position, and next thing you know we've got a subthread comparing the insults hurled by RKBA members vs the epithets flung by non-RKBA members. So at that point the discussion is not about the issue of guns, it's about who we are and how we talk to one another about the issue(s).
