Ah, the end of the year. The perfect time for publications of every stripe to dust off old content, repurpose popular packages, and name their best/favorite/top everythings of the last twelve months. And, as NPR highlights with delicious accuracy, the commenters that come with those lists.


It's a terrific meta roundup, featuring personal favorites like The Person Who Is Exactly Right, The Unwitting Outlier, and of course my personal favorite:

The Minimalist: "These blow."

It's not pretty. But my goodness does it ring true. Check out NPR for the full list, even just to see which kind of year-end commenter you've been so far. [NPR]
