The Church of Jobs
So, I write deep and thoughtful pieces on human life, or useful technical analyses, and what do I get? A couple of comments, and no links. OK, fair enough. Nobody really cares - I can live with that.
But then I post a biased, opinionated rant about how good Mac OS X is (of which most was copied from Jeremy Zawodny), and I get on the front page of TWO major Mac newssites, and MANY comments, completely agreeing with everything I said. Not a single whiff of disagreement.
It's kinda like going into a full church and shouting "God is Great!" from the top of your lungs - and the whole congregation goes off with an ear-deafening "Hallelujah!"

CommentsOne can always quote Hunter S. Thompson:
"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."
This is sick world. And the best way to get off it is just make yourself even more sicker. Actually that's the way to keep sanity.
Don't dare me. That won't be pretty... I might join your exclusive "Where I store my golden award statuette" -meme, for example.
People want what they already have. Disagreeing, standing up and having an opinion is scary. If I were to link to your On Resigning, then I would be saying that it is relevant and I can't do that because noone else has done it.
Next time, try to cry: "I'm the beast" in the middle of the Church. It should be amazing...
Why don't you write a really nice article about how Go is the best hobby ever or something, and I'll see whether I can get the Webmaster of the German Go Federation to link to it from the frontpage? ;)
I think they would just go "yeah, and...?"
And J-Ko: Perhaps my mind is clouded at the moment by the shrouds of tiredness, but... Hunh? WTF?
Muru, et sinä sitä kuvaa julkaiset kuitenkaan! Lupaat vain...
