    meta is a legitimate tag for this diary. Difference in definitions, and in this case, meta is a legitimate description for what you've done here. Don't let the people who tag callout diaries as meta erroneously give you a negative impression of the tag.

    If I've made things more confusing, sorry... btw, liked it a lot.

    At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)

      ha ha. I have always liked meta and have never thought it was calling out. I thought meta was how to have a better discussion.

      I thought calling out was calling out.

      Oh well.

      Why is it easier to buy a gun than it is to register to vote in most states?

      •  Well, if you like meta, my diary is not for you. (0+ / 0-)

        There are plenty of other meta diaries.  

        I thought calling out was calling out.
        You are correct.  Who did I call out?  You're looking for links and names?  Sorry, I won't comply with your interest in meta.  That wasn't the point of my diary and I'm very sorry you didn't understand that.

          You define meta as call out.

          I.

          Do.

          Not.

          define meta as CALL OUT.

          'For example, metadata are data about data'

          and

          ' meta- clearly has the modern meaning of "an X about X".'

          CALL OUT

          1. To say in a loud voice; announce: called my name from across the street; calling out numbers.
          2. To demand or ask for the presence of: called the children to dinner; call the police.
          3. To demand or ask for a meeting of; convene or convoke: call the legislature into session.
          4. To order or request to undertake a particular activity or work; summon: She was called for jury duty. He was called to the priesthood.
          5. To give the command for; order: call a work stoppage.

      meta is a legitimate tag for this diary
      And thank you for giving me an idea to just now including the tag:  Not Meta (although who knows what the current tag librarian will change it to)

      Meta is garbage, So and So said this or that.

      I'm suggesting a new approach to not write substantive comments in HRed threads.

      Am I fighting with anyone? No.
