Did you write to Taco? (1)

Seriously, he usually responds to questions like that.

Yeah, I'd email this to CmdrTaco, and be sure to let us know what he says. I'm not particularly happy about it either, as I too use the "No Foes" option to keep out AC trolls and various people who have proven they can't be civil...

Um yeah, about that... I want to comment in your JEs :)

See that little blue ball? No, the one by your username, not the two in your pants. That means you can post to my JE's.

;)

Yeah, right. Like I get to take them (whatever their color might be) out of the house!

Last time I emailed him with some thoughts - including stuff about the fire hose - he responded that day.

I'm considering starting Troll Tuesday Early (1)

Marxist Hacker 42 (638312) | more than 7 years ago | (#17103410)

And posting a bunch of VERY inflamatory JEs until this is fixed.

...posting a bunch of VERY inflamatory JEs...


So ummm, what were you protesting before today? :-) Ok everyone go and thumbs up this journal. Maybe this is just a sneaky way to advertise the firehose, since I never looked at it before today.

So far, I've been very serious about my Journal here- posting philosophical questions that actually matter to me. If I really wanted to troll, I could post all sorts of other interesting things- let's see, how about was the Prophet Mohammed's third sister's nephew really the chosen one of God or just another camel fucker?

And I wanted to vote this up (1)

GMontag (42283) | more than 7 years ago | (#17103536)

The only firehose choice I had was "down"!

Need to check at home.

question (1)

stoolpigeon (454276) | more than 7 years ago | (#17103854)

I've seen some of the discussion on this already, but I am unclear as to what is happening.
 
When I look at this story it shows it as being restricted. So is the issue, that if for some reason it gets accepted as a front page story and then put on the front page that it will drop the commenting restriction?
 
I haven't seen it happen where a journal that wasn't submitted got posted to the front page yet so I'm not sure when that happened or who knows what goes on when it does. Can voting automatically put an entry into an accepted status for the front page?
 
I'm curious because I really like how the firehose works right now-- as I mentioned in a journal entry of my own a few days back, I use it to find good journals to read. So I wouldn't want journals to not show up there, but of course, I don't want people losing the ability to limit posting in their journals either.
 
I haven't payed attention today, but last I checked, if I submitted a journal - it showed up in the firehose twice. Once as a journal, once as a submission. I'll go back and look again, I guess, since I've had the firehose filtered anyway for journals only.

I'm confused (1)

turg (19864) | more than 7 years ago | (#17104542)

But your JE's are not going to be accepted by a Slashdot editor for a front page story -- which would have to happen before the restritions come off.

Re:I'm confused (1)

Iamthefallen (523816) | more than 7 years ago | (#17104974)

Obviously it's unlikely that a random JE is published as a front page post.

But the problem for me is that suddenly I'm not the one making the decision whether or not is is. If I pose a question to my friends, or just think out loud, an editor can now post it as YRO or Ask Slashdot along with a trolling writeup, making it appears as if I sought the advice of several hundred thousand strangers when I just wanted to vent.
