Journal: Why I might be your friend 2

Journal by danharan

If I'm you're fan, I probably don't know you, but I read a post of yours that seemed good enough that I wanted to see your next posts.

Someone posted the idea in their sig, I thought it was a good idea although I can't remember who it was.

After 2 weeks of using this strategy, I have started noticing some patterns. My "friends" continue to post interesting comments- it wasn't just a fluke. Their friends generally post interesting comments too, thought that's more hit-and-miss.

Overall, it works, and I would like more of my friends to do the same, so I can read more interesting stuff (what their friends write) and less predictable stuff like M$ bashing. I know they're evil already, let's improve the signal/noise ratio.

If more people used such a strategy the trolls would hardly ever get read, which is fine by me.

Kudos to whoever put in these features.

Journal: Some good posts!

I found the following post of interest: Attacking the Spammer Business Model

Finally, that meme is getting out.

Since since I find there's a huge number of trolls around here, and few insightful AND original people, I decided I would add the author of that thread to my list of friends (I can't figure out how to just list myself as a fan... friend might be a bit presumptuous).
