Post 147490 by roomthreeseventeen deleted for the following reason: This is a sad, crappy thing that has happened for sure but it doesn't seem like it's clear yet that there's something beyond "this sad, crappy thing happened" here to make this a great idea for a post. -- cortex

SSM IN NE

Post 147489 by Dreidl deleted for the following reason: Heya, sounds like promising news but a short newswire writeup is pretty thin for a post; it'd be better to hold off for a more substantial post about the specifics of the case and context, etc. -- cortex

That's not how it works. That's not how any of this works.

Post 147483 by Sophie1 deleted for the following reason: Heya, we need to not have ongoing fundraising projects on the front page; totally fine to revisit this a month down the line once that indiegogo campaign is over, though. -- cortex

Post 147375 by Nevin deleted for the following reason: This seems a tiny bit on the thin or "newsfiltery" side to be honest, being a single news article. There's a couple open Isis threads, this would work fine as a comment in any of those. -- goodnewsfortheinsane

Post 147343 by rabbitroom deleted for the following reason: Hey, yeah, as a big fan of practical horror effects I'm interested to see where this goes, but it needs to wait until after the crowdfunding campaign is over and done with before it can be a post on the front page. -- cortex

the oligarchy of Wikipedia

Post 147272 by minhrootloop deleted for the following reason: This article very strongly focuses on the "comprised / composed" guy, and as such I'm afraid will just become more of a repeat of this already open thread on that topic.
