So, Ol Diz was having a "chat" with someone here about ya know, doing stuff as opposed to ranting about it, 'cause it seems to Ol' Diz that there's been an awful lot o' cryin' and not much doin' 'round here lately.  And that's where Ol' Diz came up with some MATH!

Nothin' fancy, just some good ol' country 'rithmetic.  

So, here's the test:  Look at when you joined, add the days for the rest of that year, then add 365 for each full year you have been registered and then add 235 for this year.  Divide that number into the total number of comments you have made.  What's your average?

Examplin':  Ol' Diz joined on October 3, 2006.  That's 89 days for the rest of 2006, then 365 x 6 plus 235 for this year, equalin' 2514 days.  Made 4059 comments (not includin' this here diary, 'course), givin' Ol' Diz 1.6 comments per day.  

I disappear for large amounts o' time, and make it up in diaries or on days when The Wife is Elsewhere and I got some time on mah hands.

But what's too much?  10/day?  20? 30?  

If you are here for that much time, what the heck are you doin' with your life?

'Course, some of you may be just checkin' in and not commentin', 'cause you Like To Watch.  Guess you might get your jollies from that.  In the Country, that's what sheep are for...just sayin'

So, do the math and see what you get...might be a time for a DK vacation or sumthin'...

3:09 PM PT: Hey!  Let's do the math for Kos!  Lessee...joined 10/11/2003, so that's 81+(365 x 9)+235=3601 days.  Divide that into 13,492= 3.75 comments per day.  If you are commenting at a faster rate than the site owner, you might have a problem...

3:46 PM PT: How about Meteor Blades?  Do you comment more than him?  Lessee: joined 10/13/2003, so 79+(365x9)+235=3599 days.  Divide into 76,500 comments (dude, you need to get a life!) and that's 21 and change comments per day.

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.
