Be Original Or Shut Up.



I've followed xkcd.com for its cartoons, but recently came across this brilliantly subversive idea on their blog. What they've done is incorporate software that blocks your comment if it repeats what somebody else has said. In their words, be original or you can't belong because you're just adding noise.

Something all marketers should live by.

Hell, that is a neat way to restrict audience growth!

Why didn't I think of that. No wait, I didn't need to. It is self-restricting. Zero and me are good blogging acquaintances.

John - are you becoming a bit cranky in your old age ?

I have noticed a trend in recent (historic) blog posts of tetchiness.
