A reader emails: "Wrote a thing to add to the weird culture thread, decided not to send it. Felt like fun to write it, tho."
The weird culture thread is here.
I can't blame people for hesitating to comment here. It's not just the personal woofing that's daunting, it's the tangents and highjacks and cul-de-sacs and derails into odd little personal realities that can make commenting feel like wasted effort.
But I don't want my threads to read like a back issue of Pravda, either (bonus on the truncated Rhino thread: the single published comment gets its only fact wrong).
Anyway, if people are reading and thinking and maybe writing for themselves, even if we don't get to see their work, I guess that's a win?
