Jon Swift has an interesting post on how some of the so-called A-List liberal blogs are purging links to their kid brothers and sisters.
Not being blogrolled very much anywhere, it does not affect MPS terribly if the big kids don’t want to play with me. I survived high school. That said, it stinks that they are in effect creating a class or caste system, and linking only to each other.
As many of you already noticed, I never have had a link to Kos – I just did not see the point. And while Firedoglake has been very good to MPS via the “Face the Snark” feature (and I hope they will continue to find this site funny), as well as Crooks & Liars (when the divine Blue Gal is filling in, anyway…) I’m inclined to cut them, too. This is about principle, rather than about kissing ass. And as good at ass kissing as I am, I think that there is an important moral to this story.
Counter-intuitively, Mr. Swift has a very liberal blogrolling policy that I wholeheartedly agree with: blogroll me, and I will blogroll you. So, send me a note if you want me to blogroll your site, and let me know that you have Mock, Paper, Scissors blogrolled at your site.
And in the meanwhile, I have deleted links.
