So it is not illegal or against the constitution to lock up kids for life for no crime – so long as they dare to come to a f….g island on a boat. Unlike all of our ancestors who said “beam me up Scotty” and just got here. Maybe in a tardus.
I for one welcome our new ant-based transport system. In other Webdiary news, the problem of comments—they must be edited! and managed! and edited again!—remains insoluble, as Margo explains to reader Craig:
After the changeover to the new publishing system last September, the ever increasing number of Webdiarist’s comments bogged me down in editing them. Now I’m independent, and am paying Hamish Alcorn and Kerri Browne to work full time on editing comments, publishing pieces, and co-ordinating the technical development of the permanent site. I have dreams of being able to cover big stories in every State, but they’re dreams for now, Craig. Feel like helping make my dream come true? If you’d like to help, in any way you want, email me.
On the other matter you raise, comments editing is full on, Craig, and is absolutely punishing on anyone who does the job for more than a few weeks. Yes, mistakes are made, but we’re trying always to get consistency in editing. I made and announced an editorial policy decision on content this week, that no comment questioning the fact of the holocaust would be posted. I’ll make more editorial policy decisions as issues arise, and on the permanent site these will be listed, along with the date they are made.
It’s a tough business running your own independent online newspaper.
UPDATE. A fortuitous blow to the head achieves dramatic results!
