Last week Venomous Kate asked me for "three things that make a blog suck," and this was the first:

Neglect: failure to update on something resembling a regular basis. (A subset of this would be "inadequate spam controls": nobody wants to read your archive pages if they’re filled with offers to sell Tramadol.)

To test this theory, take a peek at this page from a WordPress blog operated by the National Endowment for the Arts. I suspect a peek is probably all you'll need.

Hey, do you know where I can download some ringtones? I want one that sounds like an electric lawnmower cutting it's own extension cord.

Wow. I guess the NEA doesn't support webmasters any better than they do artists...

Surber will hunt you down. Wait and see.
