As the one or two people who read my post know I have taken a strong stance against The Huffington Post’s latest disaster. Their new invasive anonymity policy is not only bad for their members but very dangerous to online discourse far worse than any troll’s words.
People go there, regardless of anything else that maybe useful about the site, to argue. Nobody likes to admit to it but we hear it all the time “I just kicked some troll ass YAY!” I don’t think there’s anything wrong in that, sometimes in the course of a vibrant discussion comes a point that you can’t say anything more than a repetition of something previously stated, one CANNOT make opposing ideologues see the light no mater how intricate or elegant an argument is made.
That was a mini rant that had nothing to do with the challenge.
So here is the challenge HP has become an aggregation vortex offering little original content they HOG every story and pat themselves in the back as if they are the internet itself.
I CHALLENGE YOU to post a stories that are not HPee linked. 99% of what is posted on the site is available at the original source, give a click to the people who deserve it not the MONSTER threatening the way discourse is done on-line. One page is all I ask can you do it?
