This is why, incidentally, why people hate blogs so much. My God, people say, how can Livejournallers be so self-obsessed? Oh, Christ, is Xeni talking about LA art again? Why won't they all shut up?This helps explain the trouble I've been having with how anonymous or non-anonymous my blog should be, but gives no answers about what to do. Still it's an intriguing enough question that I read the whole long article over at Danny O'Brien's Oblomovka.
The answer why they won't shut up is - they're not talking to you. They're talking in the private register of blogs, that confidential style between secret-and-public. And you found them via Google.

Bad google results yield more valuable fruit. I just found this article about the difference between secret, private, and public registers.
