    ...and I don't begrudge you this idea or anything.  I don't wish it ill.  But it makes me crossed-eyed to even think about it.

    Here's a comment I wrote on the day after on one of dengre's little read-diaries from last weekend.  In fact, I write a lot of "researched" comments like this with more content than many diaries on dKos have.  Probably why I don't post more diaries than I do.  Much of my activity on dKos is exactly this sort of thing.  I suspect that hardly anyone reads much of it.  Except the NSA, that is.

    That said, I don't understand why any of dengre's diaries are little read...  Ccan't explain it exactly, but the very idea of anyone trying to sift through this makes my eyes go out of focus.

    Best of luck with your new feature.

      That is definitely the type of comment I have in mind to keep my eye out for. You're right. A lot of thoughtful comments are overlooked sadly and they have more thought and information in them than the diaries. When they're in a little read diary, it's like they go to waste in not reaching a wider audience they deserve. So if the comments are posted in here as like a catchall to the great stuff, it might encourage more people to spend time commenting. Would you be interested in being part of this rotation? If not, please think to either post such links here or email them to me.

        And due to the legacy of slow bandwidth, I tend to spend much more time in "little read" diaries than in the bigger ones.  (Because I could go take a shower while the big ones are loading... and come back and it might be almost done.)

        I do often think that the main audience for a lot of what I do here is some mid-level staffer in Pombo's office, and perhaps someone at NSA.

        Though people keep saying they wouldn't have known about Pombo if it weren't for my series, so there must be a few others that read them sometimes.  But I really am inclined towards day-after comments, which really is out in the wilderness.

        I'll consider it.  But since it makes me feel cross-eyed to think about it, it might be difficult.  Ask me again tomorrow.  I've got out of town company leaving on the weekend, so probably not before then anyhow.
