Megnut is frustrated with OPML.
Personally, I'd love to address the questions Meg raises, but when I try I get flamed. I had long talks about this with both Gillmor brothers when I met with them separately last week in Calif. It's been a constant theme. The problem isn't the technology. What incentive is there for me to walk into a flamewar? Don Park explained it when I saw him on Saturday. The spokes complain when the hub moves, said Don. Okay, that's probably right. The problem is easily solved -- when people other than me say no to the personal attacks when they come, it's easier to weather the storm. I get blamed for the messes, but honestly I want to clean them up. There are just a few "standard" attributes for OPML. Programmers don't like to be told to conform. But the rest of us have to encourage them to get over it.
