First! The obsession with being the first commenter

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

If you’ve ever read any of the XXL blogs, you’ll be familiar with the phenomenon of “first commenting.” You know, those guys/gals who wait with bated breath for a new post, and then rush over and write “First!” in the comment box.

I had a chuckle at this video, which pokes fun at “first comment” culture. Hat tip to Oh Word, and check out an old post of Rafi’s in which he discusses this phenomenon.
