Genesis of a Meme
Giving a hat-tip to a terrible 1990 film, Leigh has called it:
"You have the right to remain silent... Forever!"
On no authority whatsoever, I take it upon myself to start a blogger meme which may encourage public debate, by completely stifling its loudest members.
It shall work like this:
Step 1: List 7 people who you wish would never publish, or publicly speak another word. At least half must be different to the list of the person before you and up to three may be a group if not an individual.
Step 2: Get the person who sent it to you to update their blog pointing to your post.
Step 3: Forward to 5 other interesting bloggers who can continue it.
It is your responsibility to ensure it doesn't die. So if you optimistically forward it to various uber-bloggers and they ignore it, hassle them mercilessly or pass it to someone else.
If you let the chain die, a terrible curse will befall you... .The people you despise will never ever shut the hell up. Be warned!
I'll start (in no particular order):
Britney and Kevin
I have passed this on to Down-under blogger (I'm optimistic) Tim Blair, Scott the Environmental Republican,
Update: Andrew Sullivan's out, let's try Evil Pundit instead.
Update: Further down the line, a few others have joined the party. Miller's Time is no longer "it".
