Bloggers of the Brane Unite, You Have Nothing to Lose But Your Pains!

The Bite the Wax Tadpole Manifesto! The Junior Ganymede may have reservations about one or two specific points, but we approve, as we must, on the grounds that manifestos, like burning books, should be on everyone’s bucket list.

If the Bite the Wax Tadpole movement still has room for a dedicated vanguard cadre of fanatic revolutionists, we should like to offer our services, and our backroom (it is quite smoky).

Old news actually. This kind of stuff, and the stuff the prompted it, goes all the way back to newsgroups on UUnet (kind of an early Internet), and even message forums on various online services (AOL, and amateur Bulletin Board Systems) before the Internet was opened to the public.

The XKCD cartoon says it all.

The time-sink aspect is a danger to those who are supposed to do actual work online. [gulp]

These were issues we discussed back on the Internet BEFORE the average person had access (universities and government only).

As it is, I agree that one should be able to write whatever on his/her own personal blog without a bunch of inane comments. On my personal blog, I only allow moderated comments.

Helps keep out the riff raff and spam. I haven’t decided yet which is worse….

I’ll have nothing to do with a secret code promoting Coca-Cola by way of the language of a communist nation.
