I didn't have a clue who he was until jjoyce kicked off this bashing session, but The Stu is right about the miscellany. Leaving it stuck in time would be irritating and unprofessional even if it hadn't been a well-liked site feature. And adding injury to insult, I have to look at the same permanent Konkel Kwotes daily. Stop hitting yourself, indeed.


Well, Stu posted a sort-of-alarmist Forum topic which was basically him reiterating his oft-repeated complaint. He likes to present himself as a grownup but failed to act like one, so he earned himself a little teasing.

Oh, it's gone alright, replaced by The Sconz, which looks like a duplicate of Latest Posts. Why?

It is just a FREE WEEKLY newspaper. We're not supposed to take it this seriously.

I read it all the time, misc restaurant reviews, Soglin, MPD reports, Konkel, it was a great feature. Tons of blogs all in one place. Stupid move. Stick to your high standards.

I appreciate that people are concerned about MM, seriously. As you could probably imagine, it's a chore to update, particularly with the "do more with less" ethic common at media companies these days.

We think it's a valuable feature, too, which is why we've been working on a way to make updating slightly less strenuous. The feature might end up being slightly less comprehensive as well (some days saw 40+ links, which is a ton).

There's some of this above, but if you care about MM, let us know what you want to see there the most.

This just about covers it. Restaurant reviews could go elsewhere.

Thanks for the response! My personal favorite element that has appeared: links to blogs from Madison outsiders just stopping through-- probably would never read those otherwise, and sometimes they give an interesting perspective on the city. I also like links to live music show review blog posts and articles from beyond Wisconsin that relate to Madison in some way.
