More on blogs & lists: the blogosphere strikes back, sort of.

Stephanie and Jonathan both remark on the way Poetics list discussions get filtered to them largely through blogs (well, through this one in particular). Jonathan goes so far as to say: "I officially call for [the list's] abolition!"

Ptarmigan minces no words: the list is a display of "ziploc-sealed clubbiness" and "public show-ponying."

Meanwhile, the discussion on the list itself meanders on; remarkably, the posts there have taken on an increasingly elegiac tone, with Joe Amato returning to declare "the passing of the Age of Lists" and saying of blogs: "i may start one myself."
