...people who are prodigious commenters are following in a grand literary tradition...

A discussion on ways to aggregate comments and commenters at Collision Detection.
(Such a facility would help the work of one of the most prodigious and literary local commeters in his Vice Regal Commentspherical Annual Awards.)

Comments: c'sphere

(Am already unofficially collecting bon mots for the 2005 gongs. The usual suspectakov is in fine form already and it's not even a fortnight into the year.)

It's better to be commented about, than to score a (0). O.Boynton.

Yes the early form is both prodigious and literary.

I noticed my typo there in the post and was going to attend to it - but maybe it's one of those 'fraudian' typos, maybe "comet" has something to do with this side of the blogosphere.

If you have a category for best typo-ridden comment, boynton will win no worries.

Worry not about the O.

It just means we all agree with you.

On a technical note, there is a bit of a problem with this kind of blogging (and mine too a bit) where people go to the link, get enchanted and just think "um. Yum." and wander off..

Thanks, David.

I rarely worry about the 0 anymore.
(the great esnet and I once decided it meant a chorus of "Oh"... whatever Oh means)

And you're right about the hyperlinking away quality of the web. Guess that's the ultimate test of a good link, though.

Maybe this site may help?

My first entry of the meaning "Oh"
was misunderstood.When l re-read the site it sounded like l found your "blogging" offensive.
Far from it Boynton! My definition of "Oh" is
enlightment and enchantment.l enjoy your blog.
