Where did Dunkelheit und Strafe go?

I've been told I shouldn't use obscenities in this blog, words like "pelosi", phrases like "sassen frassen fricken fracken" and certainly nothing from the Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television.

To that end, the Blog List has been culled again...

[fretful sighing sounds]
...the link to Dunkelheit und Strafe has been moved to The Other Place.

Why? Well, the website name, that's why. No, it's not "Dunkelheit und Strafe", that's my lame attempt to translate "Gloom and Doom" into German.

And it's not really called "Gloom and Doom" either, it's called... um...
Isn't that cute? Rearrange all the letters of a word except the first and last, and you can STILL read it!
The other problem with Dunkelheit und Strafe it that it always sorts to the top because in these grim economic times there's always some company going under or dumping their most valuable assets.

So, while I was at it (culling the Blog List), I pushed the "off topic" entries over to The Other Place as well: Jessica Hagy's Indexed and Randall Munroe's xkcd.

Here's my thinking: I want this blog to be accessible to people with no sense of humor at all... you know, like Management.

It is unfortunate that you are limiting the weirdness. Check out Tom Peters' blog about how it is necessary to become exposed to a variety of viewpoints and opinion to foster innovation.
