now, I’m giving up on Kinja and I’m going to exclude Kinja from my site in the future. It’s not that I’m outraged or anything, it’s just that to me, the site never lived up to anything close to what it promised. None of the shortcomings are even killers – it’s more a “death by a thousand cuts” kind of thing. The honking big CNet ad didn’t help, but it was just the straw that broke the camel’s back, not the whole load. Other problems with Kinja? It seems very fickle about what it picks up and when, it often suffers from post-dumps from particular sites, it doesn’t deal with accents very well, posts are frequently out of sequence, and, even more, it doesn’t give me anything new, anything I can’t get better in a dozen other places. It’s too bad – judging by the look of the thing and the reputation of the folks who worked on it, I expected a lot more.
