The bias angle to the story blew up big with the blogs reporting it, and that got lots of people interested that never heard of the assassination plot.

Thank you again, and as always. If I beat the odds, and beat the 7-term incumbent, I want you to come to my inauguration in Congress. I'll find the funds to bring you and your wife to Washington as my "advisor," for surely you are that.

With great respect,

John / Billybob

I want to head off a bit of controversy before it even appears.

The purpose of this is twofold.

1) To make it so that some things which, to date, have been pulled will no longer need to be pulled. This should make the posters of such things happier, and make it so that those who would enjoy those things happier.

2) Help keep the main forum less cluttered.

And this should be done without watering down the main forum.

Blog posts are very similar to vanities, but had not been treated as such since they were 'published' elsewhere. The new forum will allow us to treat them more like vanities. The substantive posts in this category will still be welcome in the main forum. It would be a mistake, for example, to move Wretchard's incredible analysis of the Iraq fighting out of the main forum.

Also, some blogs have attained a status which is comparable to the web presence of major publications. Instapundit comes to mind, as does Lileks. With almost half a million visitors since December, I think the aforementioned Wretchard falls into that category as well. Little Green Footballs. The Volokh Conspiracy. I am not talking about the one line entries by these monsters of the blogosphere, but rather the longer posts they do which are essentially self-published articles. These are not going to be moved.

Similarly, certain writers and pundits have their own blogs. Roger L. Simon. NRO's The Corner. Mickey Kaus. These professional writers blog posts are generally not going to be moved by me.

This is obviously going to mean that there is some subjectivity involved. Some are going to say the moderators are not being consistent. That is all understood, and to some degree will be true. Despite this, the end result will still be a tidier, more on-focus main forum with fewer threads flat-out pulled, and as such will be an improvement over the status quo.

Thanks, LM

Oh goody. That means we can make fun of the DUhmmies here again. I have really missed some of those hilarious threads. Thank you Jim You're the best.

*Smooch*

Does this mean we can have some of those old threads restored and moved to this forum?

I like that idea. Problem is, the very nature of trolls is to post and run. We haven't even been very effective at keeping one for a pet. There may be the occasionl, self-deluded DUhmmy, though, who would stick around, thinking he is going to educate the dumb FReepers. Hehehe...

Now Grammy(me) can show off at the next family get together.

I've only been on the internet for 3 1/2 years and my kids are always saying "Where did you get that stuff?" and "How do you know that?".

Most of what I know came from Freepers like you.
