I use dialup, and I have no problem with adequacy loading, in fact it loads faster than a lot of other sites I visit. And geocities? I'll have to assume you are joking...

It would be nice if someone could mess with the scoop code so that http-referer's were attached to user comments. It's a well known fact that hackers are all porn addicts. Just leave the referrers (Note the proper spelling) visible to certain privileged users e.g. me. That way we can bring up their filthy little habits when they try to defend illegal activities.

someone needs to link to it at the of the page, say between Diaries and Search, so that we can see what kind of idiots actually frequent this establishment other than PotatoError (just kidding).

Ok, who picked the flower???

Could an administrator disable this new section in the RDF backend XML, like the diaries?

Reading rejection letters is interesting, but I'd rather see only real stories when syndicating adequacy headlines on my homepage.

Thanks.. (none / 0) (#13)

Thanks for pointing that out natael, I wouldn't want that syndicating either. It should be fixed now.

Isn't this what the front page on this site has been used for over the last year or so?

Keep the faith brother.

Are you adequate?

I don't think we're catering to your taste. (1.00 / 1) (#9)

I'm sorry if we've misled you, Mr. Trollaxor, but Adequacy does not reprint X-Files slash fanfic. I think you've got somewhere else to go for that sort of thing.

A bit too long for the introductory text is all.
Are you adequate?

Where's Mine? (none / 0) (#14)
by doofus on Fri Jun 14th, 2002 at 01:51:24 PM PST
I submitted an essay on the Euro back in January, when people might have still cared about it, but I never received my rejection letter.

Mr Johnson, would it be possible for you or any of the fine editors here at Adequacy to resend mine?
