Wilding is back, in POG™

Wilding is back, in POG™ form!
In true meta-form, the argument about thinkdink’s Good Idea is really not about her (or her idea) at all.
THE WEBMISTRESS SUMS IT UP NICELY:
This blogger community is so insular. And everything that happens causes shockwaves and ripples throughout the community and is linked to and discussed and ripped to death (sorta like I’m doing…) – for about a week. Then it becomes played out, and dies, and is replaced by something else. I’ve been doing the blog thing for about a month now, and I’ve been witness to several feeding frenzies and trends, for example – the haiku craze, the "capture the one minute interval" insanity, the "what the hell does LNBB stand for and why won’t you tell us?" uproar, and now this. So…judging by past experience, Dink has about four more days to put up with all this nonsense. Set your watches.
BONUS QUOTE FROM JZ ON MEFI::
Given that most blogs are not terribly important, competitiveness and meanness further devalue what is being created. It’s like winning the retarded people’s spelling bee by whacking the other contestants on the head with a board.
