This morning I was treated to a delightful piece of investigative journalismism (hat tip to Twizzlerss) by Cory Blair of AJR.org entitled "How I Became a Kinja Star for, Like, 10 Minutes." In it, Blair explored what makes Kinja users (who, for the record, don't have a single official moniker, but rather are more commonly defined by where they post e.g. "Jezzies," "GTers," "Balkers") act the way they do, and more specifically, how they dole out their much-coveted recommendations or "stars."
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
