D-Squared Provokes a Call to Action

The close:

[W]hen the New York Times came and offered [Ross Douhat] a column, he did not turn it down saying “no, I clearly do not deserve this honour, others are far more qualified for it that me”.

The NYT thinks Douhat’s important because people link to him. They neither realize—nor care—that you’re laughing at him. They just count the links and think he’s Valuable.

Stop linking. Please. Even the thorough destructions (e.g., Dave Noon) include the trackback.

Don’t include a link to Douhat. Think of the children.
