Um… is this guy who’s tracked-back to me using my blog in order to campaign for his? How positively rude. Like salt, and open wounds. Did he read the entry before pinging?

Chuck, I do think a minor protest about the category limitations is in order. We demand a “Best Academic Weblog” category! (Hmmm. Now that I think about it, such an award would never be considered legitimate without a weighty and protracted peer-review process. And undoubtedly some yo-yo would wind up writing a snarky newspaper article about the ridiculous things that pass for blogging in the academic universe, and it’d turn into a whole big hoo-ha. So maybe not.)

Anyway, Liz, thanks. I’d rather be on your list than theirs, any day! 🙂
