Target Map

I've started a map of targets. I won't bother saying what the point of this is, because no matter what I write, people will, intentionally or otherwise, misconstrue it. I hope the links on each name targeted gives you enough of a clue, if you are inclined toward reading and understanding.

If you have any submissions for the map, send me email to targetmap@pudge.net with the name of the individual or organization, and a link demonstrating why they should be on the map.

The sites of madmen killing others, where more armed non-madmen could have at least discouraged or mitigated the killing that took place?

Did you click on the targets?

No -- I just looked at their locations. Seattle, DC, Tucson ...

Looking at the answer is cheating!

I clicked and found that you are targeting those Cosmotarians in New York! It is about time, if you ask me.

but it took me quite a while to realize you had a link in the text. I was befuddled for a while.

anywhere to find an eta on styling the journal entries? I'm hoping when done it'll fix this issue like they did for the front page.

I'm so dense:
1) It took me a minute to figure out that you had to click somewhere along the arc in the upper-left quadrant of each circle, in order to see the links.
2) I visited a few of them and I still don't get it.

p.s. I thought at one point pudge was no longer working at /., but he still has that badge by his username. I would like to believe he didn't have a hand in the current state of mess we're seeing.

I am no longer working at Slashdot.

I expanded the clickable area of the targets.

All of the people (as demonstrated in each link) have stated or clearly implied that it is wrong to use "violent" rhetoric such as that from Palin and her infamous map.

Well of course I noticed that connection. I'm assuming you didn't make a map of targets out of them just because that's what they're objecting to, but that there's some significance to those particular geographic points beyond being those articles' origination points. But I'm either too dense and/or too uniformed to deduce what that is.
