— Ace I'm going to soon have a "Comment" feature for those headlines in the sidebar, so people can comment on a particular story that's not on the front page, if they like.

For the same reason I never used to post these sorts of stories. There's something about having a big headline that goes out over the RSS feed that sort of promises more than a link and a one-liner, you know?
I just always think that if I have a post, given the headline-format of this blog, there has to be more to it than that, even if it's just an extended excerpt from the piece.

That reminds me, though -- it would be nice to have the headline stuff on a separate RSS feed, so we can look at it in other formats. I suppose this would sort of destroy the "get more links" aspect of it, though.

Also... I just wanted that headlines thing for a long, long time. For a while I didn't think I wanted to try to serve the role as a first-read site, figuring it was too much work, but what the hell, if I have as many links as drudge over there every morning, why shouldn't people come here first?
I just have to get that dumb RSS accumulator working and I'll be all set.

I think it makes more sense to use the main page as a highlight, as in "this is my best guess as to what's most worth talking about, or most interesting, or most funny."

Agreed. Your judgment in this regard and your added content is key element of the blog and the reason you have such a loyal and involved readership. Kudos to you for not just throwing up links.

Unless of course you're throwing up links to the Digital Brownshirt. Then it's always good.
Two good things about Haloscan, it cuts down on anonymous and s pam comments.
What's with your filter? It's denying cn n. com and s-pam.

I think it's pretty funny. Some idiot is paying to advertise an anti-Bush site here of all places. That's money they'll never get back.
