    Even though most of the research stuff was over my baby-addled brain, I'm still impressed.  It's depressing to see useless diaries on the RL just because of name recognition, but I never thought there was some evil group lurking about making sure those horrid diaries written by popular users get on the RL.  Some people will always complain about the RL simply because their diaries never make it up there.  I've read diaries by "popular" posters that rocked, but weren't recommendable in my personal view.  That's just the way it works.  There are people who appear on the RL almost daily who I would never recommend because their diaries (subject or writing style) don't appeal to me.  I'm sure there are others like this out there.  Maybe we're so super secret a cabal that we don't even know it.
