    I thought it was a coup for me but thanks for being so gracious!

    Very Nice! I heard her in Copenhagen about a month ago – splendid woman doing admirable work.

    You just have to make it more and more difficult for those of us readers with limited time on their hands to handle FTB, do you? And more on the way?!?

    I wish I could quit work because just going through all those interesting daily blog entries is becoming a full-time job!

    Yay for Maryam!

    Now if only I was capable enough to join the bandwagon…


    This is what I do at work, although…

    … so many elipses. So little coffee…

    Oooh, this place just keeps getting better. Gotta make up for the hacks who opened it, eh?

    Keep up the good work, Maryam, please.

    I thought it was a coupe. And I got excited because the bus isn’t always convenient for me. But then it seemed too unlikely that FTB would be giving away cars.

    But now that the coffee’s kicked in, this is good news!

    While it is nice to have so many great bloggers in one domain, will you slow down? I want to read everyone and I can’t keep up at work.

    I know.

    As an Iranian and a regular reader, I’m really happy for this news!

    Given how FTB has continued to grow, I was wondering if it is possible to have a larger list of recent posts. I really want to keep up with all the bloggers but I can only manually check a few of them. Having some soft of page similar to SB’s last 24 hours would be awesome.

    Like TrineBM, I heard Maryam Namazie in Copenhagen recently, and she gave some food for thought – I especially like her focus on regaining the debate from the racist right (e.g. BNP in Britain and Danish Peoples’ Party in Denmark) while still being against fundamentalist Islam.

    I think there should be a rule here that every time you add a good blogger, you delete one of the deadwood blogs.

    If you guys are looking for a nice way to get all the updates by all bloggers on FTB, an RSS reader like Google Reader can do the trick nicely for free.

    At first, I was thinking it was kinda sucky to not be able to filter out only one author (well, not sure if it’s possible now, but I stopped trying when the blog only had a few people signed on), but reading everything posted on the site helped me discover some pretty interesting articles and writers I wouldn’t have tried out otherwise.

    I hope Sikivu Hutchinson (blackfemlensdotorg) is one of the upcoming joiners-up.

    Now if you can just get Dan Dennett on here…

    Oooo I love Maryam. Welcome. Can’t wait.
