    For me, it's a news aggregator, an action network and organizing tool, and a community/movement builder. Maybe because I rarely write diaries, and most of the ones I do write are connected with the community, I don't have much of my ego bound up in this place. Perhaps if I were a pro or an aspiring one, i might feel differently.

    I also have a fairly demanding (in a good way) life outside of this site, and I suspect that some of the prime suspects here have a lot of time on their hands and limited real-life social interaction.

      It applies to more than just this particular site, but yes, I have seen that played out in ways I found quite sad, and in some cases disappointing because I didn't see that poster as being that insecure.  

      When egotism gets too extreme, it takes all the fun out of it.
