Response to Behind the Aegis (Reply #20)

Wed Aug 20, 2014, 01:48 AM

21. That's the way I judge my recs.

I don't rec threads just because they make me feel good or impart good news. I judge by what I feel is the importance of the topic or the potential of the OP to generate some interesting debate. So even if an OP states an opinion diametrically opposed to my own, if it's interesting and may spur some meaty discourse, I recommend it. If we only rec happy threads then we'd better be willing to settle for kitten and puppy pics rather than discussions. I've seen wayyyyy too many really good threads sink like stones because there weren't enough recs to support them or provide greater visibility by making it to the front page.
