Sort of want to reiterate a story I told a few diaries ago about Richard Rorty commenting scholarship is a conversation we join in the middle and leave before the end. Just getting the idea there are more factions and fictions than I was aware of. Shouldn't be surprised, since the same was true at LiveJournal (the fanfiction corner) and it took me about a year to notice, so I guess this is better. But I like to know how to avoid triggering other people.
Anyone know if there are any historical glossaries, texts, or wikis I could read to get up to speed? Ran into an interesting, if rather defensive diary today which taught me some new things and got my adrenaline going (very fun Saturday night stuff, better than SNL!) and that led to another diary I recc'd for its nice writing and POV. Then I realized that the FIRST diary I read was actually in response to this SECOND diary, and a whole new wave of MEANING came flowing through.. including dark hints of something called "HR" which is what -- human resources? I've read too many rules too quickly, I think. Oh, also, what's a concern troll?
I'm assuming this is of no interest to a larger community and has no reason at all to be rec'cd. So please don't. I think of this as the kind of entry where we'll all sitting in Commons and chatting over tea. Or coffee, should you prefer. Civilly. Lightly.
9:21 AM PT: Just remembered a highly important other query -- does the tip jar itself work automatically somehow? (I know that it appears automatically). I mean, how do people use the tip jar -- are you supposed to click on it to tip, or what?
Wed Nov 06, 2013 at 10:22 AM PT: Historical memory of guidelines turns out to be perhaps shorter than I thought. Happened across this, which are the Kos current guidelines, apparently. Of course, they still don't tell me how to tip, but c'est la vie.
