A week at GOS

I searched the Diary titles from the last seven days:

'Obama' - 538 Diaries (50 with > 200 comments)
the majority of them positive titles

'Clinton' - 222 Diaries (26 with > 200 comments)
the majority of them negative and/or containing "Obama"

'Iraq' - 22 Diaries (2 with > 200 comments)
one of those two was "Chelsea Clinton Gives An Arrogant Response to a Question on Iraq"

'Economy' - 7 Diaries

'Media' - 21 Diaries

'Health' - 13 Diaries

'Rove' - 2 Diaries (one of those "Hillary Plays a Karl Rove")

No votes yet

I forgot to include:
'Hillary' which adds another 12 Diaries with more than 200 comments.
I guess I need to expand that.
Hillary - 170
Hillary & Clinton - 35
Hillary & Obama - 34
Clinton & Obama - 66
Barack - 24
Barack & Obama - 50

Some of us prefer The Orange Frat House.

EENR. Still a good diary series, and the commenters are good in those. But the rest of the site, ohh boy. And it's only been two weeks since I left. Wow. Frat house indeed.

Good luck to him.

That column in Newsweek was a sign of things to come, alright. Just not quite the sign we thought it was, at the time.

you were talking about a website that's jumped the shark? i guess i don't have enough time to keep up with all of those. if true: sorry, Dark Lord. i still like you as a person and value what your site offers to people and/with/or good ideas. i really do, i mean that with nonono snark. but when it comes to being a Leader in The Herd, shit happens, and that shit happening means nothing about the "owners." sites get lame, communities move on, good work is done elsewhere. such is life.

if GOS is past its use, and will fade by '12, i won't weep. indeed, i'll buy OrangeSatan a glass of wine, the next time i see him, and say, "good job, man!"

Markos, SP, Amanda, Duncan, The Matts: none of them are wholly responsible for the "dimunition" of the quality of "their" communities. that's the beauty of blogging. you write what you write, and people comment, follow, imitate, bitch, and lie about you/it; or they don't. in the end, Quality always knows Quality, and will show so.

that's just the Wheel of Life, kidz. intranets, i don't mean to belittle this post with my comment title, i'm just expressing how this "issue" isn't in my line of fire. but to you i say: good work as always.
