Consolidated link thread, September 2011

Re­cently the Dis­cus­sion sec­tion has been full of link threads, most of them with a pretty low karma score and few if any com­ments. While many of them are in­ter­est­ing, I’d pre­fer to have less of them around. Right now they clut­ter up the dis­cus­sion sec­tion so that it’s get­ting hard to find the threads with ac­tual dis­cus­sion go­ing on.

There­fore I’d sug­gest hav­ing reg­u­lar link threads, in the same man­ner as ra­tio­nal­ity quotes and open threads. If you’re only post­ing a link to­gether with a brief de­scrip­tion or ex­cerpt, and it isn’t some­thing re­ally re­ally in­ter­est­ing, please post it as a com­ment in a link thread.
