I followed a link from Beth’s blog to The Stranger’s site (somewhat unsafe for work), where Dan Savage is soliciting new definitions for the term ‘saddleback’. I scrolled down to the comments section, and spotted this:
There’s an old, silly online tradition of posting ‘First!’ (or some variation) to popular forums or blogs. This is a particularly poor execution of that practice.
I wonder where this ‘first’ business started. Slashdot, maybe?
Seriously, though, which definition of “saddleback” did you vote for?
@Beth Yeah, I think #5 is the best bet as well.
I found it amusing that the commenter you are mocking is identified as *me*… which led me to think that Darren had left that comment 🙂
It’s silly. The same thing happens on internet forums.. “first post!”.
I guess some people are just proud of being a certain kind of early adopters/finders 😉
The same thing happens on internet forums like “first post”.
First is worst! Seventh is the Webventh! I win
