I won't be here to discuss it, but here is an excellent new essay, which I

| Dear internet,
| Can I make a suggestion? Let's all stop using the phrase
| "user-generated content." I'm serious. It's a despicable,
| terrible term. Let's deconstruct it.
| User: One who uses. Like, you know, a junkie.
| Generated: Like a generator, engine. Like, you know, a robot.
| Content: Something that fills a box. Like, you know, packing
| peanuts.
| So what's user-generated content? Junkies robotically filling
| boxes with packing peanuts. Lovely.
