Eighth Anual web blog awards

Hows this the nominations for
Best Web Application for Weblogs -- Youtube ,Twitter, Blogger, Flickr and Wordpress

Now they are defining a blog as a page with dated entries "Something that helps you publish, make comments, anything that has to do with developing a weblog." which I suppose Youtube, Twitter and Flickr all have but they aren't blogging platforms
Yes they have dated entries and publish but they don't publish blogs

What do you think is Flickr a blogging platform can you BLOG on it ?
Maybe I've missed something because by that definition Yahoo messenger is a blog you can make "comments" on that can't you
No I don't get it at all

What do you think ? Take a look here
