I/P

Over at the Admin site, Turkana wrote this-

maybe it’s time we discuss how to deal with i/p. otherwise, we’ll have an israel-bashing diary on the rec list, every day, and the same poison that infects every site where these people take their hatred. i wish there was a button to prevent a diary from going rec list. any ideas?

To which buhdy’s response was-

Let’s talk to them!

Once again transparency and sunshine….

If someone does something we don’t like, let’s have a short convo here to define it….and them tell them about it!

I will be happy to lead this effort….when I can again …..sniff!

My thoughts below the fold.

This is an Open Thread but it’s very important you don’t promote or recommend it.

The concept is that like Booman’s Frog Pond or TDS/TCR this be visible in the ‘Recent Diaries’ list for people who want to participate for a limited time.

There are going to be three chances-

* 9 am (mega slacker)
* 12 Noon (slacker)
* 6 pm (now)

If that is not enough punishment we will increase the level of abuse.

I thought we were here for an argument.

The Morning News: RIP Pavarotti

From Yahoo News THE TOP STORY

Italian tenor Pavarotti dies at age 71

ROME – Luciano Pavarotti, whose vibrant high C’s and ebullient showmanship made him the most beloved and celebrated tenor since Caruso and one of the few opera singers to win crossover fame as a popular superstar, died Thursday. He was 71.

His manager, Terri Robson, told the AP in an e-mailed statement that Pavarotti died at his home in Modena, Italy, at 5 a.m. local time. Pavarotti had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year and underwent further treatment in August.

“The Maestro fought a long, tough battle against the pancreatic cancer which eventually took his life. In fitting with the approach that characterised his life and work, he remained positive until finally succumbing to the last stages of his illness,” the statement said.

Earth tones

Well, it’s a big change, but I want you to see just what a little change in background color can do.

The main color is based on Patriot Buff, but is even lighter- fffffa

This is the color of the outer border and the main column.

The Recent Diaries Column and the Menu Column are a little yellower than Patriot Buff- ffffee and they are now both the same color instead of one being darker than the other.

So this is ‘earth tones’ and browns, yellows, greens, and reds should work and play well.

I’d like you to live with it for a while (like today maybe) and we’ll try something different tommorow.

No, I’m not afraid of anything, why do you ask?
