A Short History of Valentine's Day Cards by Richard Thompson




From the blog post here:
http://richardspooralmanac.blogspot.com/2013/02/that-thing-about-valentines-cards-again.html
Which links to a good Slate article on Vinegar Valentines (which seem like the 19th century version of an anonymous web forum. :shrug

If I could make a poll on DU in Meta, I would ask, why does everyone come here to DU?

And my options would be:

A. To get news I might of missed in the mainstream media
B. To hang out with other Democrats/Liberals/Progressives/etc
C. For the entertainment or just to see the car crashes
D. To pass the time
E. To make my views heard
F. To get or to make people agree with my viewpoint
G. Other (Please state reason)


Then I would start another poll and ask:

How critical is DU to you?

1. I enjoy it as part of my day/week/life
2. Life or Death! Seriously, agree with my concisely worded screed/rant/opinion or else.
3. Other (Please explain)



For me, I would answer A,B,C,1

Tom Toles on the GOP Response to the SOTU Address

The DU Effect

1. Giving more weigh to a subject than the subject deserves.

Example: Ted Nugent's appearance at the SOTU address. Was this even mentioned anywhere in the mainstream media? I don't think CSPAN ever showed him. Did it matter? All the threads discussing it gave it more attention than it deserved.

"Marco Rubio's rebuttal wasn't great, but I'm sure it's soon all be bottled water under the bridge"

On Edit: Answering the frantic cries of Quinnox and ScreamingMeemie, I have changed the word "thread" to the word "post". Hopefully, I have now corrected DU's most heinous crime and can only throw myself at the feet of my accusers and beg for mercy.
