1. Nancy, I think it is more complex. What if there are really
interesting people whose posts are often filled with gems, but at the same
posts some self-infatuated or status update stuff ("going for breakfast")
("sitting in my garden") stuff which is not interesting to almost all.

2. Christophe, I don't understand why you have included my name. I don't
think we ever met, and you certainly don't know me. I had nothing to do
with the CNN story.
