First, the child got to it and "edited it without mangling it too much." One of the editors wrote me an email asking me for the original text, because he thought it worked just fine that way. So I sent the "non-mangled" text with a quick explanation of my feelings on the matter.
The child posted the story before that editor could restore the original text. I politely requested the original text be added, which it was. The story seems to have generated some discussion. At least 34 posts worth of comments. The first six were removed, presumably editorial comments. No worries. Of the next 29, only six were allowed to stay. I'm curious as to what was being discussed that required deletion. [editor's note, by jsm] Wonder no more. We were discussing the fact that you were trying to foist second-hand content on our front page
I guess I'll never know. Apparently, one of the editors (I know which one I think, but I'll keep silent) has decided to remove the story completely.
I am now amused and confirmed as the vilified scapegoat of Adequacy.org. You guys are too funny.
