There were lots of questions in the meta diaries over the last couple of days, and we've tried to answer many of them. Here's another chance to do so.

Ask me anything. I'll answer in batches. I'll be around for the next hour and a half. Then I have to go coach youth soccer (my latest and greatest hobby ever). This evening, I'll return for another round of answers.

If your questions are sincere, I will answer sincerely. If your questions are assholish, I'll answer accordingly. I enjoy doing so, actually. I'll try to get to as many questions as possible, but if there are hundreds, well, there's only one of me.

That said, fire away!

9:57 PM PT: Guys, with over 140 answers and the hour getting late, I think I've reached my limit. Not to mention this thread is getting crazy big. I'll do this again soon. Thanks for all the questions!

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.
