I don't disagree about delete, but what any site/magazine should aspire is that most of their content is relevant to the target audience, in a way that they see as relevant. If you delete 1 in 10 perhaps, its noise. If you delete some greater number, then...maybe you lose that reader. That might be ok, might be an unintended loss. Not withdrawing my editorial, I think it fits, but I like to learn about where the boundaries are.
Sure, but if we could move this to another level for a moment...
There are sites on the Internet that have been taken over by groups who want to force their agenda on everyone. Please don't let that happen here. For example, Steve does bring up "women in technology" often. He and I have a slightly different view. It is perfectly fine for him and I to debate the merits of the topic. It isn't OK for me to try to force my views on SSC. Steve should of course listen to what people have to say, but in the end, SSC needs to maintain the focus of SSC, not my focus. If I (get hit really hard in the head and ) happen to feel that women should not be in technology, Steve should not change the site to accommodate that view. If I feel only women should be allowed in technology he should ignore that as well. Steve tries to maintain a balance that I think is pretty good, but allowing one or more of us to control what he posts is not appropriate.
Now of course that example is deliberately extreme, but to bring it back on point, you wrote a blog about something that is important to you. While you didn't necessarily spoon feed us as to how it relates to technology, I think a number of us picked up on that. Your post was appropriate for what SSC typically has to say, was entertaining, and uplifted our spirits today. IMO, you did good.
I frequently see simple cartoons posted as the blog, and I don't always care for those. When that happens, I simply move on. SSC is my go to site for everything SQL Server. I don't let cartoons influence my choice of sites for content.
