February 5, 2013: Morning Open Thread
Last week I wrote a diary, like I have many weeks before, using the acronym MOT. I caused a few minor heart attacks as I also used the word banned in the title. Folks read the headline, ran with it, and made the assumption that somehow Ministry of Truth had been banned.
Folks, Ministry of Truth is alive and well at DailyKos. He is often referred to as MOT but should more appropriately be referred to as MoT - small o for the of.
I also pledge to add a header to the top of my Morning Open Thread on Tuesdays to help avoid confusion. But if a little confusion brings new eyes to the MOT, I'm all for it if a few of those eyes chose to come back and visit again!
However, I owe someone an apology.
Ministry of Truth, if you're reading the Morning Open Thread, I do apologize for any confusion. I hope you didn't receive a rash of kosmail asking you what happened. And if anyone ever thinks that something you've written was actually a Morning Open Thread because you used the initials MOT, we are willing to take complete credit for your writing. I'm sure you're okay with that.
Just out of curiosity, I'm going to poll the community to find out just how hot and bothered we are by the MOT/MoT conundrum. If people feel strongly enough, I may just have to reconsider my use of the acronym.
