    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.  
      •  Nobody you called out NOBODY. (1+ / 0-)

        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.
