Information wants to get paid.

Post 141319 by flapjax at midnite deleted for the following reason: A single link opinion piece (and book promo) is probably not a great post for a super charged topic that people fight about here all the time. -- taz

"gasping and snorting for more than an hour"

Post 141241 by tonycpsu deleted for the following reason: This is another incredibly awful chapter in an ongoing awful situation, but we have a week old open thread on the death penalty where this link could go, and we've recently had long threads discussing other botched executions. -- LobsterMitten

If the geeks inherit the earth, what happens?

Post 141184 by modernnomad deleted for the following reason: This is a sort of short and lazy op/ed on topics we've covered a *lot* recently (google glass, privacy / surveillance, etc., soylent, SF, tech backlash), and doesn't really bring anything new to the discussion -- taz

Battle of the Handbags

Post 141149 by joseph conrad is fully awesome deleted for the following reason: Hey there, sorry, I get the sense there's an interesting story here but as-is, this is a confusingly framed collection of links, and some of the links are just brief stock market reports. Maybe try again tomorrow with a clearer focus, either on the best article about the business-competition aspect, or else on the these-are-exceptionally-great-handbag-reviews aspect? Or are these particular models of bag significant in the story of the competition? -- LobsterMitten

The Punk Singer

Post 141138 by signal deleted for the following reason: It's great they made this movie, but as a post this is pretty thin in that it mainly points to this non-web thing that people can't see all of; maybe post again tomorrow, adding some more web-available links? -- LobsterMitten

The World Health Organization calls for the decriminalization of drugs

Post 141129 by bookman117 deleted for the following reason: This is a strange framing that makes it sound like there's some agenda here. The blog post is taking a weirdly "gotcha" tone about the recommendation; maybe try again with a different link? -- LobsterMitten
