Upon consideration, I am not at all sure that having a
section is a good idea.
It's fun. I like it. But what is it, really? Do we, as
a community, really want to showcase the dross we've
acquired along the way? I am hard pressed to see what
good this does any of us; it seems a lot like the sorts
of daytime television which, in the US, showcase the
basest behavior in society, so that everyone else can
marvel at how low human beings can sink. It also seems
like our own little Troll Hall of Fame, a goal for sad
individuals who feel incapable of contributing anything
better to a community than petty vandalism.
Granted, to remove it only obscures the information; it
is still there for the clever or dilligent to find. But
why enshrine what is bad? We've got too many great things
going on here to call attention what little is ignorant
I'm not pleased to suggest this. Like
of fun that would be sad to lose. But it may be for the
best, especially in light of recent events.
But maybe I'm wrong, or I'm overreacting, or not seeing
the whole picture. Wouldn't be the first time. What do
my fellow monks think?
