Boing Boing should tweak their template so the "tiny" guest-edited blog is not on the permalink pages. It looks clumsy when the post is short but the sidebar is long. Blogger users can do this with conditional tags. For example, wrapping <MainPage></MainPage> around the guest-edited blog code would make it only show up on the main page. While I'm at it, I should mention that for such a fancy, well read and high-quality blog there's lots that still needs work including the design of the guest permalinks and the guestbar archives (which are broken.) I won't even mention the actual layout of the blog at this time. Or maybe new bloggers can just look at the wildly popular BoingBoing and realize that nobody's blog is perfect. That way, it's more of an encouraging thing. Nice!
