Cognitive Bias Disclosure: I like Techdirt, and I read it multiple times daily.
Keep doing what you're doing. You're doing it right. The beach of the day site (Digg, Reddit, Facebook, Snapchat, etc.) are all great until everyone goes there. That's when the pristine clean sand becomes filled with toys and chum, and the waters polluted with vim and vinegar, and the vendors go from selling steak burgers and ceviché to dubious-meat hot dogs and "melty" nachos.
That's the problem with beaches. Once everybody hears it's awesome, and the barrier to going there is a click away, it starts to get polluted.
Disclosure#2: I left FB on Christmas 2015 and have looked back but not logged in. I miss some things but I don't miss it. That having been said, I used to DAILY post references to articles here on Techdirt, on arstechnica, and on Scott Greenfield's blog. I'd offer my own 'take' on it and invite people to read the articles.
I was hoping to educate my FB friends. What I did succeed in doing is getting a bunch of them to read TD daily. As you said, the key for TD to be successful is for people to want to read TD, not have a regurgitated version elsewhere.
Erdogan was not good to his people and not good to the other countries around him.
The Turkish military have a strong history of coups to restore democracy, free law, and a secular (non "islamist") society. These are all aligned with not only what *we* (outsiders) want but also what the Turks want.
Erdogan has been slowly working his way up to be President For Life™ and this will put a stop to that.
This is good for Europe. This is good for the US. This is good for Israel. This may improve things with Russia. It won't change anything with Kurds or Syrians.
I'm sorry, I'm sure you meant to say something meaningful. Unfortunately in the process it became meaningless.
What's the phrase before the "because"... you know, the one you're explaining. "Because" is used to explain something given a question. What was the question?
> their legislature Whose legislature?
> is yet Has yet
> to become aware of "to become aware" is to gain consciousness. I think you mean "to be aware."
> of the invention of the railroad The railroad was not an invention. It was a series of upgrades from the carriage, to the horseless carriage, to a horseless carriage with special "roadways" to the railroad.
Please do add detail. This may prove to be fascinating.
