[01:04:26] <Bytram> I'm of two minds about running stories about the latest trend in shootings / violence / cops / etc.
[01:04:53] <Bytram> I'd like to avoid our falling prey to the tendencies of "if it bleeds, it leads" that seems ot be folowed by mainstream media
[01:05:57] <cmn32480> this is more part of the ongoing story
[01:05:59] <Bytram> I suspect, for example, that there are gun fights involving police probably every day of the year in the USA (pulls number out of butt)
[01:06:08] <cmn32480> with Baton Rouge adn the recent spate of killing police
[01:06:35] <Bytram> otoh, somthing like what happened in nice, with well over 50 killed, then that is WAY out of the ordinartry, and i'd say run it.
[01:06:56] * Bytram goes to reread baton rouge story
[01:07:17] <cmn32480> Gewg actually subbed a very nice article on it minutres after I posted the one that went out
[01:07:45] <Bytram> okay, maybe it's me, but I didn't make the connection that this was a follow on to a previous story we ran, and there were no 'related' links in this story, either.
[01:07:56] <Bytram> good to hear
[01:08:44] <Bytram> if it's a followup incident, then that is a horse of a different color, so long as it clearly marks that it is such, I can go for that.
[01:09:04] * cmn32480 goes digging for the previous stories
[01:09:11] <Bytram> likewise
[01:10:33] <Bytram> cmn32480: here's one from 2 years ago: https://soylentnews.org
[01:10:36] <cmn32480> Dallas and Minnesota
[01:10:37] <exec> └─ 13Cop Shoots Drunk Man Dead After Forcing Him to Drive a Car - SoylentNews
[01:10:44] <cmn32480> nah
[01:10:47] <cmn32480> these are like says old
[01:10:53] <cmn32480> *days
[01:10:58] <Bytram> you son't day?
[01:11:01] <Bytram> =)
[01:15:26] <cmn32480> it is mentioned in the Dallas Sniper attackstory on July 8
[01:16:15] <Bytram> So the search reported, but I did not see it there!?
[01:16:22] <cmn32480> but I can't seem to get them to show in the related stories.. the checkboxes aren't working for me
[01:17:55] <Bytram> you mean this one: https://soylentnews.org
[01:18:01] <exec> └─ 13Sniper Attack in Dallas: 5 Cops Dead; 6 More Wounded - SoylentNews
[01:18:05] <cmn32480> yes
[01:18:13] <Bytram> I've read it twice, but can't seem to see the connection?
[01:18:46] <Bytram> I don't see 'Baton' or "rouge' on it anywhere
[01:19:17] <Bytram> hmmm, maybe this: "The shootings occurred during a protest against police killings earlier this week in Louisiana"
[01:19:40] <cmn32480> it was the Alton <soething shooting
[01:19:49] <Bytram> rings a bell
[01:21:20] <cmn32480> brb
[01:21:24] <cmn32480> gotta put kids to bed
[01:21:30] <Bytram> k, ... same here
[01:36:22] <Bytram> back
[01:36:34] <cmn32480> back
[01:40:07] <Bytram> I see you posted some stories... gonna 2nd 'em
[01:44:36] <cmn32480> i did
[01:47:39] <Bytram> am gonna add a little something to the Semenya story -- events in which she is scheduled to compete
[01:49:17] <cmn32480> deleted Gewg_'s sub as it was posted by him as a commetn in the BR story that went up
[01:52:02] <cmn32480> I am fo deleting the Boris Johnson story adn the Trump campaign graphic story
[01:52:07] <cmn32480> bytram?
[01:52:15] <Bytram> bin both of 'em
[01:53:18] <cmn32480> done
[01:54:34] <cmn32480> also binning the NYC shooting story
[01:56:56] <Bytram> nodnod
[01:58:36] <Bytram> as for the "Whereto" story... my thinking about the 'mis-moderated' comments is that the community basically ran out of mod points so did not have the ability to correct error moderations
[02:00:00] <Bytram> though things may have gotten out of hand at the outset, I suspect that if people return to the discussion, there's a good chance that there will be corrective mods to bring things back to more, for lack of a better word, accurate levels
[02:00:16] <cmn32480> probably

[02:00:36] <cmn32480> derp
[02:00:38] <cmn32480> 15:06
[02:00:45] * Bytram sets his alarm to make sure he goes out to look
[02:00:53] <Bytram> ;)
[02:01:07] <cmn32480> #smake bytram
[02:01:16] <Bytram> ROFL!
[02:01:19] -!- MrPlow [MrPlow!MrPlow@nsa.gov] has joined #editorial
[02:01:24] <cmn32480> #smake bytram
[02:01:24] * MrPlow smakes bytram upside the head with clippy
[02:01:57] <cmn32480> that smake was so well deserved that I had to summon the bot and doit again!
[02:02:15] * Bytram unwraps his just-delievered Acme super electromagnet and shunts clippy off to the side
[02:02:26] <Bytram> boioioing!
[02:02:34] * cmn32480 waits for the expected explosion...
[02:03:13] * Bytram awaits delievery of a pu-238 space demodulator
[02:03:26] * cmn32480 giggle uncontrollably
[02:03:47] <cmn32480> one of the owners of the company where I work sounds like him.. and that is one of the thigns that gets said behind him as a gag
[02:03:47] * Bytram is now very VERY angry!
[02:04:03] <Bytram> Orly? ROFLMAO!!
[02:04:24] <cmn32480> he is a cross between Marvin adn Kermit
[02:04:39] <Bytram> I cannot even *begin* to imagine how hard it must be to go through life sounding like that and always being the brunt of such jokes... yikes!
[02:04:52] <Bytram> it's not easy being green
[02:05:07] <cmn32480> and the best part is, his technical skill is on par with that of MArvin...
[02:05:16] <cmn32480> makes it so much easier
[02:05:38] <Bytram> ummm, marvin was rather sophisticated, IIRC, but his *people* skills were not so hot.
[02:06:05] <cmn32480> maybe he is more like the tech skills of Wile E. Coyote
[02:06:22] <cmn32480> and nothign ever went right for marvin
[02:06:27] <cmn32480> Pate has same problem
[02:07:00] <Bytram> now Wylie OTOH, I could *so* indedtify with *him* -- so many of my 'great' ideas seemed to end along similar lines
[02:07:13] <Bytram> not quite the way I had planned
[02:07:41] <cmn32480> hehe
[02:07:43] <cmn32480> ok
[02:07:48] <cmn32480> I ogts to get up at 0500

[02:08:26] <Bytram> hold on a sec
[02:08:29] <cmn32480> ok
[02:08:41] <Bytram> there was an ed note about the high pickens cavity story
[02:08:49] <Bytram> and having lots of
[02:08:57] <Bytram> "A lot of non-quoted direct quotes in here... I hate when he does that. It's a PITA to try to fix.. (CH)"
[02:09:01] <Bytram> did you do anything about that?
[02:09:20] <cmn32480> I broke out the paragraphs, and added the quotes where I could find the right bits
[02:09:32] <Bytram> nice! thanks a bunch!
[02:09:33] <cmn32480> much of it seems to be a few words here adn there
[02:09:46] <Bytram> is so tempting to do, I know!
[02:09:55] <Bytram> np then, get thee to bed!
[02:10:09] <cmn32480> yes dad
[02:10:14] <cmn32480> ~gnight bytram
[02:10:16] * exec diarrhetically generates a small script that substitutes a hollowed out iMac of seven of nine for bytram
[02:10:21] * Bytram strokes his moustache
[02:10:33] <cmn32480> better then you telling me you are storking other things
[02:10:34] <Bytram> not bad!~gnight cmn32480
[02:10:39] <Bytram> ~gnight cmn32480
[02:10:41] * exec half-heartedly imagines a freedom sandwich of pre-snorted fridge mold with cmn32480

[16:55:05] <Bytram> yeah, I spose

[16:55:54] <cmn32480> exec has been running for prolly 2 weeks... maybe more
[16:56:07] <cmn32480> he jsut needed a kick in the shorts
[16:56:20] <Bytram> true that, but I've also been on trips where I drove for several hours straight... okay, not for 2 weeks in a row continuosly... you have a point

[18:48:40] <janrinok> still not going to Mexico then?
[18:48:49] <cmn32480> August 22nd
[18:48:57] <cmn32480> they pushed it back.. thankfully
[18:49:07] <janrinok> lets hope they keep on pushing
[18:49:20] <cmn32480> until after the world ahs ended!
[18:49:47] <cmn32480> I am sorry to hear that S isn't doing well in the heat
[18:50:02] <janrinok> everything good in the cmn household?
[18:50:11] <cmn32480> it's been hotter tehn fire here too
[18:50:17] <cmn32480> and the humidity has been unreal
[18:50:22] <janrinok> It's a known symptom, I just have to get used to it
[18:50:24] <cmn32480> things are about normal
[18:50:42] <cmn32480> today is 97F

[18:53:27] <cmn32480> kids are getting mouthy
[18:54:13] <cmn32480> I feel about the same regarding the temperrature... though I don't think it is really comparable
[18:54:18] <janrinok> they all do that during growing up, don't they?
[18:54:31] <cmn32480> yeah.. but the oldest is only 7 1/2
[18:54:45] <cmn32480> I had to give him the Golden Rule talk
[18:54:57] <janrinok> S loses the ability to control muscles on demand
[18:55:16] <cmn32480> you know the one... quit treating people like shit, because, eventually, that is how they are gonna treat you
[18:55:34] <janrinok> ends up coughing when trying to swallow, knocking things over when she reaches for them etc
[18:55:52] <cmn32480> oh my... I had no idea that was a symptom in higher heat
[18:55:56] <janrinok> I remember receiving that convo once...
