It's even worse than it appears.

  • At a BloggerCon-like conference in Nashville. 2005. My session was occupied by a small number of right wing Rush Limbaugh fans. All men, as you might imagine.#
  • They were complaining no one was listening to them.#
  • I was the moderator. I pointed out to the nth guy to complain -- you know everyone is listening to you right now. Didn't matter, someone else started complaining about the same thing. They just kept saying the same words over and over. As today, their main point was their grievance.#
  • My response was this: "I can't tell you why there aren't more right wing nut jobs here, best I can do is listen and empathize and then move on to the next person."#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
