Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On a small point of PNing. I think diaries belong to the people who post them, but the comments don't. However the comments are not understandable without the context of the diary. Tricky one. But you are right.

Personally, I have found Shergalds' LQD's to be, occasionally, useful as a counterbalance to lamestream.  However, I also agree that many of them would be items better placed in the Salon - or summarised in a weekly diary with insight.

The problem is, perhaps, one of the profile of ET. There is a central ET political thrust, but that thrust is possibly only useful if tempered by wider subjects. Too many of the wider subjects appearing on the splash page do affect the perceived profile of the forum to the casual visitor. (Although we still haven't established what is the use of casual visitors)

I would hope that people like Shergald can continue to post, as long as we all understand that what we should desire more than anything here is insight - micro or macro. This is a community, not a bulletin board.

You can't be me, I'm taken
