I  actually  thought  about *grin*, but it  has  a  negative
connotation.  Then I thought of *smirk*, which I rarely  use
because  it  sounds  like "smurf". Also reminds  me  of  the
nickname  of someone whom I corresponded with in ICQ when  I
was 14/15. Anyhoo...

FeedBurner  is  a  good  tool for cleaning  up  site  stats,
separating passive readers from the active viewers.

What  would be nice to have is an extension that facilitates
posting.  It  was  over a year ago when Scoble  argued  that
aggregators  were  all one needs (he hasn't much of  a  clue
about  tech,  IMHO), only to realise that  participation  is
missing.  I  prefer newsgroups myself (with KNode).  I  wish
WordPress was a newsgroup; I could never get Gmane to work.

Isn't RSS 1 kind of "legacy"/backward compatibility thing?
