[03:04:11] <MrPlow> #fite Hephaestus falls broken at cmn32480's feet.
[03:24:17] <cmn32480> charon - I read your note on the professor watch list story.
[03:24:43] <charon> and?
[03:24:54] <cmn32480> I agree. What I am going to do is put a delete on it, with a note back to the submitter, asking him/her to do a rewrite to make it a littel more straight forward and less biased
[03:25:16] <charon> this is actually the second time he's ubbed that same story
[03:25:24] <cmn32480> is it?
[03:25:30] * cmn32480 goes to loko at his submission page
[03:25:40] <charon> this one is worded slightly differenty but most of it is the same
[03:26:26] <cmn32480> jebus.. almost word for word
[03:26:31] <charon> yah
[03:27:24] <cmn32480> gimme a couple and I'll put somethign together
[03:27:29] <charon> k
[03:27:50] <charon> i'm building subs atm, but i'll see a ping if you need me
[03:32:12] <cmn32480> hmmmm who knew... the ed notes box has a limit
[03:32:20] <charon> lol
[03:32:45] <cmn32480> Decline reason: aristarchus, the editorial staff like the idea behind this story, and we think it will generate good discussion. Where we are having a problem is with the way this particular submission is written. This comes across as a very one sided submission, and as much as we have tried, we are unable to make it come out as a neutral reporting of the event instead of a side-taking piece. If possible, since we would like to
[03:32:45] <cmn32480> give you credit for it, could you do a rewrite in a more neutral tone? Phrases like "a group of concerned uneducated people who are concerned that they might not be getting educated, since what they are being taught does not agree with their uneducated opinions!" are the type of thing that we would generally like to avoid. It is a great topic, and we appreciate the submission, but it is a little too leaning to one side instead of
[03:32:46] <cmn32480> reporting just the facts. Thanks. - cmn32480
[03:33:49] <charon> that is an admirable piece of diplomacy
[03:34:06] <charon> cmn32480++
[03:34:06] <Bender> karma - cmn32480: 79
[03:36:35] <cmn32480> that is the longest decline reason I have ever sent
[03:37:26] <charon> could choke the system. we're in a new frontier
[03:37:38] <cmn32480> lol
[03:38:01] <cmn32480> I have no idea what the limit on that field is, but I think it is along the lines of War and Peace
[03:40:09] <charon> sorry about the one where i forgot the links
[03:40:25] <charon> i was in a hurry at work
[03:59:10] <cmn32480> np
