I just wanted to say that there seems to be a solution. Judging by the still relatively slow (IMO) pace of proliferation of extropian ideas and projects, this statement doesn't seem to be obvious.
I also am sitting in front of my PC with a strong fever, so I guess my
semantics may look as blurred as my screen. Sorry for that.
What I don't understand is why you chose to address only the part of my
message that you called "content-free".
What I don't understand is why you chose to address only the part of my message that you called "content-free".I guess criticism of content-free text is not content-free (or is it content-free of the next degree?), but in any case it can't construct anything new and positive (and not being a result of a mistake, probably raises the level of guilt more than the extra semantic step raises the level of meaning).
Let's break out of this meta-meta-nonsense and return to the issue:
Would anybody like to do something meaningful and active about this, like do HTML work, donate some money, or anything else?
If you have a small practical response, like
"Yeah, I think I could spare 10 bucks to buy 1000 visitors for [Site name]"
"HTML is so hard, but I'll try to help"
If you have another proposal or meaningful criticism, please post it to the list.
