So after years of reading metafilter, I finally get up the nerve to post a front page link, and what do I get for my first comments? A sexist remark and a grammar flame. Feh.

It looks as though at least one positive response has since come in, though.

Yeesh, pedantry is really annoying. (Although I had been wondering about the effect/affect thing, I wouldn't have chosen this way to have it revealed...)

Double feh
Now that Google has opened the old Usenet archives, I wonder if we can pinpoint the origins of the first troll...

The Post had an interesting article about your very point last week, BTW.

Re: Double feh
There does seem to be a knee jerk reaction factor associated with any editorial that talks about women and media on metafilter. Heaven only knows why.

But you got at least one response that was good, and I thought the point of the article was well taken. :)
