Bright Idea

[posted by Callimachus]

Eve proposes one of the best blog-rules ever:

I propose a new rule for the internet: If you have not read at least four books by Andrea Dworkin--read them stem to stern--you are not allowed to type her name. If you have read zero books by ditto, typing her name will cause you to spontaneously combust.

There are only two problems with that:

1. It doesn't go far enough. I'd make a list of about 100 people nobody should be able to blove about without reading, not one. And as penalty mere spontaneous combustion is insufficiently severe.

2. It would stop the Internet cold in its tracks and replace the Niagra of Stupid with a howling silence.
