To a lot of us, with minds locked firmly in the past, it's still "the fold" or "the jump," though there is nothing about it that looks folded and any sort of jump is only in our imaginations. To many others of us, it simply does not exist: we ignore it completely, choosing to compose our entire diaries above it (as I am doing here) or to allow it to buffer the space after our intros without mentioning its existence.

From diaries published just since 8:00 this morning, I gleaned these nicknames:

angry marmot labeled it a "squiggley-thingama-doodad."

According to RoseWeaver, it's the "DKos Squigglie."

Just One More Dad sees it as "the curlything."

To resistancelives, it is "the orange squiggle."

Kossack jnhobbs sees in it an "orange danish."

It's just a basic  "squiggle" to Clytemnestra.

We may have a lot of things on our minds, people, but I think we need to climb on the soapbox and make our voices known. DK4 is nine months old and we have all been looking at this thing all of this time, but we still do not know what to call it. I think that the indication is obvious:

It's time to name the squiggle!

(Your suggestions are of course welcome.)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
