    I rely on the snippet also.  If the information about the diary topic doesn't catch me, I move on.  I do the same thing with the diaries where the snippet is just a link to the same diary posted to the author's twitter account.  

    I know I'm missing a ton of well-written and informative diaries, but I'm also reading a ton of well-written and informative diaries that have encouraged me to click through via their informative snippet.

    However, due to this comment thread, I will make a point to catch TomDispatch diaries in the future.

    •  I too will give them a closer look (3+ / 0-)

      It's interesting, though, that they don't often (ever?) seem to get picked up by Community Spotlight either. Neither do the RH Reality Check postings, which has a similar model of various people contributing the content. And both tend to be "posters" who do not participate or respond to comments or discussion.
