If a woman thinks too much, she’ll grow a man’s head.

(Polish or Russian proverb I distinctly remember reading, illustrated, in a book of proverbs, for which I can find no online citation. I also remember “The Lithuanian is dumb like the pig, but smart like the fox.” Polish proverbs, I believe.)

If I had a nickel for everytime something I posted showed up on the front page, I’d have… I’d have a bunch of nickels. Several of them. Possibly enough to play PacMan with?

Are you… disappointed with BoingBoing?


May I note proudly that this leading-question has become “a thing”?

@beschizza @jlw - are there any public stats-over-time that you would care to share?

I certainly don’t get the feeling that BB is a corpse, sad or not.

The sheer number of new features and bloggers would seem to indicate otherwise, as well.

If you listen to John’s Rum Doings podcast (it’s quite good, actually), it’s clear that he’s a long term reader of BB who isn’t a fan of the amount of sponsored posts/affiliate links/Big Silicon posts. They talked about it a few episodes ago.

Not being a fan is one thing; saying that BoingBoing is a “sad corpse” implies that it has failed and is not a going concern – that’s a traffic-based assertion.

Did you read about that Nazi romance book mentioned in that article? Is the criticism of that what Anne Rice was upset about the other day?

What I’ve found today is that even when RPS is fully whitelisted in AdBlock & ABP (not sure why I have both…), I still don’t get any adverts, presumably becuase Disconnect is blocking Taboola from tracking me.

Is that the way the ad vendors work? If they can’t track you, they won’t serve anything?

Glad you enjoyed–“Save a pretzel for the gas jets” in this one took me by surprise and had me crying. Beautiful stuff!

EDIT: Oh dear forgot the fricken link.
