A couple of weeks ago the NY Times started a new feature where if you double click on a word a window will pop up and define the word for you. It isn’t a bad idea, it is just a huge pain if you are neurotic and double click words, lines, and paragraphs as you read things. I happen to be one of those people, but until I read Matthew Yglesias’s complaints I thought I was alone (and didn’t want to write a LiveJournal-esque rant about how the NY Times has it out for people with my neurotic malady). But it turns out there is a website dedicated to getting the NY Times to turn this feature off. Pretty sweet.
