[01:21:08] <cmn32480> BigotDetectorGoesBing!
[01:21:26] <chromas> google news probably has links too but nobody uses google :)
[01:23:35] * Bytram uses DDG
[01:23:51] <cmn32480> like he said.. nobody uses Google
[01:23:56] * Bytram closes a <b> tag
[01:25:19] <Bytram> all yours
[01:25:24] <cmn32480> danke
[01:25:45] <Bytram> bitte
[01:25:54] <Bytram> I'm delaying the story that follows it by a few minutes
[01:25:59] <cmn32480> sure... if you say so
[01:26:08] * cmn32480 takes a bitte out of Bytram
[01:26:16] <Bytram> OUCH!
[01:26:46] <Bytram> done
[01:27:24] <cmn32480> bytram tested, cmn approved
[01:27:36] <Bytram> lol!
[01:28:37] * Bytram finds it hard to imagine that someone could drive for a MILE down a sidewalk intentionally causing that kind of harm and destruction, and keep on going
[01:28:59] <cmn32480> well.. yeah
[01:29:08] <Bytram> takes a special kind of 'sick'
[01:29:11] <cmn32480> yer not a religious psychopath (I think)
[01:29:16] <Bytram> nope
[01:29:25] <Bytram> just a plain old everyday garden variety one
[01:29:26] <cmn32480> but that is an unsubstantiated rumor at this time
[01:30:16] <chromas> I'd do it if it were through a blm blockage :)
[01:31:51] <Bytram> nope, not me. I am too sensitive to others' feelings -- I'd never survive mentally after something like that.
[01:44:16] <Bytram> afk biab (making dinner)
[01:51:52] <cmn32480> and I'm spent
[01:52:05] <cmn32480> my eyes aren't staying open on their own any more

[12:55:47] <Bytram> if any editor concurs, feel free to bin the story and clean up the queue...
[12:56:18] <Bytram> my experience has been that the community generally rises to the occasion when the queue gets low, but they need some lead time to see it and then submit stories...
[12:56:27] <Bytram> so, the earlier they are binned, the better.
[12:56:28] <Bytram> ok, gtg
[13:07:45] <CoolHand> I concur.. I would have bin'ed most of those already, I"m just not sure how to leave feedback with the new procedure (I learned from a poll comment from Bytram that I've missed some new feature with regards to that)
[13:18:17] <Bytram> atm there is a small field for 'delete reason'
[13:18:17] <Bytram> if it's an AC, don't bother
[13:18:21] <Bytram> we have found it good to write up our reason and put it in the editor comments field,
[13:18:23] <Bytram> update the story
[13:18:38] <Bytram> then copy / paste the reason into the delete reason field
[13:19:03] <Bytram> then, and only then, hit the delete (from within viewing the submission)
[13:19:11] <Bytram> that way there is a record of the reason for the deletion
[13:19:39] <Bytram> that reason is sent to the user as a 'message' much like how they'd receive notice of comment moderation or a reply to one of their comments
[13:19:44] <Bytram> CoolHand: ^^^
[13:19:55] <Bytram> I need to be at work in less than 30 minutes...
