[01:44:42] * Bytram is reading scrollback and just came upon this:
[01:44:49] <Bytram> ==> oh, and there should probably be a colon after "From the Washington Post" in the Sessions story
[01:45:52] <Bytram> I would, 'cept for one of *my* pet bugaboos... the name of the newspaper is: "The Washington Post" <<- notice the word "The" is part of the name. =)
[01:46:00] * Bytram continues reading backscroll
[01:49:07] <Bytram> if expressing personal preferences, I'm not keen on P666's *inserting* a link into a blockquote that is, in reality, a link to the submitted story. I generally strive to have the blockquote remain unaltered from the original source... (Though I will occasionally add an <em>...</em> around the names of publications (papers, journals, etc.))
[01:55:23] <Bytram> http://feedproxy.google.com
[02:03:31] <n1> I was waiting for a bit about the "The"
[02:03:33] <n1> :p
[02:05:09] <Bytram> ROFL!!!!! =)

[04:17:49] <takyon> there has almost been a development every day in the trump russia saga: https://soylentnews.org
[04:18:11] <takyon> maybe they should be run as merges with newer stories about the topic every 3 days, if we run them at all
[04:20:37] <takyon> in this case I guess the other Comey sub could be merged with it
[04:21:59] <takyon> this could be really helpful, or a way of editing a title in the sub queue: https://github.com
