The funny thing is, on the control groups where I lurk, there is
generally LESS speculation and "let's guess the story" and story ideas
than where I *am* around. Generally, what you tend to get are simply
people's reactions to stuff...I liked this one, or didn't like that one,
how come they did something stupid, where can I get info...that sort of
My experience has been that the *most* critical nets are the ones
where I'm known to hang out, because folks know their concerns have a
chance of reaching me. That's probably the biggest difference.
