Comments: Still A Few Bugs In The Bogosphere Meme-Tracking System

I've been following this site (and running into your comments elsewhere) for some time, and your continued trotting-out of the term "Z-List" to describe your own site is a bit disingenuous. B or C, maybe, but don't pretend that no one's listening. =)

I say "Z-list" as rhetorical self-depreciation. Anything else, and it leaves me open for a comment of "Don't flatter yourself". Or "You're there? Well, I'm even worse off!". The difference between zero and a few hundred is really not all that significant when compared to tens of thousands.

Due to the exponential nature, I think the *social* structure is really A-list, B-list, "everyone else". Making fine divisions within "everyone else", while it can be done, strikes me in most situations as tending to miss the forest for the trees. I'd make such a distinction if doing a very detailed ranking study. But to point out that my blog post is *not* leading the discussion, I was just trying to convey I'm part of "everyone else".
