It is possible that it has not escaped your notice that the first deconstruction roundup has yet to appear. It won't be showing up this Friday, hopefully next week. I dropped the ball on that, I drop the ball on a lot of things. I am a chronic ball dropper
Anyway, in it's place I give you this open thread. Not that I want to take away from the moderation discussion, working that out is vital to the future of the Slacktiverse, but I figured we should have something today and in place of the deconstruction roundup I was supposed to provide an open thread with a prompt about deconstructions made a certain amount of sense.
So here's the prompt: Deconstructions, some of us make them, a lot of us follow them, why? What makes them so compelling. Alternatively, if you don't find them interesting, this is a perfect opportunity to say why not (if it's the sort of thing that can be put into words.)
