Kudos on the good posts today (March 4).: I wanted to commend the masterful posters today who brought not just beautiful links but posted them with brevity and beauty. Look at the spareness of those five links (as of this locker room posting) today. It's almost like a Zen garden. Ommmmm....

I don't know. I get somewhat irritated when there is an FPP about some pretty major event with a link just to the news story. Favre's retirement and Walsh dying were good chances to put a fantastic FPP up. However, the news posts are already up before such an FPP can be completed. Of course, it probably only bothers me because I don't think those guys were given their due with those one news link FPPs.

I'll buy that, but I think people assume a post will go up before they could put together a good one (at least that's what happens at Metafilter). Why treat it as complete though? There's nothing stopping people from posting a bunch of links in-thread too. I wish more threads had that kind of thing to keep the conversation going (and prevent follow-up posts).

I'll go with what yerfatma said.

This is, and forgive me if I'm speaking out of turn here, a collaborative site. If you find the content of a post lacking, and you have links to more substantive material, by all means provide them.

No thank you. I'd rather mock the less lazy. It's this thing I have. (Geez - I haven't posted an FPP in ten months? My epitaph: "Had a lot to say about other people's interests".)
