Can anyone identify what's wrong with this post about top bloggers' favorite posts? Took me about 5 seconds; see if you can beat that.
PS: Extra points if you also notice that all the posts sound really boring and navel gazy. I mean, would you waste time reading a post about SixApart buying LiveJournal? Or about a camera store's bait and switch policy? I thought not. My discerning readers want to read about chocolate and politics. Which wouldn't be a bad name for a blog, come to think of it.
UPDATE: Here's the reply:
Projecting whatever evil you see in the world (racism, sexism, homophobia, wars) on me/ this post is certainly an easier option than facing real issues. I'm only afraid it won't help anyone.
In other words, the issues faced by women and girls who constantly find themselves unrepresented/underrepresented when these "lists" are made are "unreal". I'd like to hear the post author say that to his wife or daughter.
UPDATE II: Shelly Powers has more, from the perspective of a techie blogger, where this sort of thing has been going on since, well,
ever since long before Kevin Drum uttered the immortal words: Where are all the women bloggers. She'll be writing a post in a couple of weeks that answers that question once again.
