Do you see this diary? This diary is a great example of what not to put in a diary. It is a great example of what to put in an open thread instead. I would delete the diary so that it wasn’t sitting there pushing a diary someone spent time and effort on off the list, but I wanted to leave up an example of a diary that does not belong in the diaries section.
No personal offense to the diarist intended, who I’m sure is a perfectly nice guy. But we need to start being more conscious of using diaries for substantive posts rather than toss-offs, which belong in an open thread. Like this one!
