8, 8 days until Disney! Ah ha ha!

Reddit

Tayssir modified his posts on Reddit, so I just went and deleted mine so I wouldn't look like a complete moron.

Anyone else involved in those threads may want to do the same.

Yeah, and get this - they keep the same score that people voted on them.

I still think you didn't look like an idiot and Tayssir looked as if he were tired and emotional.

Thank you.

But [Post modified, etc] followed by "See, this is proof you're a moron" just didn't feel right to me.

I guess that's reasonable.

I now have the same problem here as I ever did at JOS which is distinguishing threads with new content in a mass of read ones.

Now if the contrast between them was just bumped up a leedle...

Are you sure you're not mildly color blind? The two colors are very distinct to me.

they would have a hard time being more different.

If you aren''t color blind then your monitor sucks.

mmm...which along with the radically different monitor set-ups could explain the aesthetic arguments we had.  People were literally seeing things differently.

Thank God we didn't have to regroup at muppet's place.

No the monitor is fine, its the relative contrast which is too close.  At 1280 they become almost undistinguishable, at 1024 they're fine.

It's ridiculous that Reddit lets you edit posts after people have given it a score or replied to it. It's a subtle way to do trolling, though - bait someone and then mildly change it so it looks like they're a nut.

What, like blaming moderators for not controlling a forum better and then editing that bit out later?

Reddit also seems to edit link submission titles.  I'm not sure if they do that for all links, or just some, but they edited the title of that post, a few hours after it was submitted.  I don't really want to confront them about it, but it seems disturbing somehow.

I noticed that, but assumed I was just remembering it incorrectly.
