There's probably a technical reason for it. My guess would be each character adds more bulk to the user database.

It's odd that such an advanced military needs to bomb houses to get at tunnels.

I'm good friends with several Serious Southern Baptists, and we have almost nothing in common aside from being major geeks. We have good discussions about pop culture and politics, and we stay respectful all the way through. Differences in beliefs shouldn't keep two people from being friends and having good discussions.

Yep. It comes with the presumption that an apology is necessary. It probably is, but people who need to account for their errors rarely see that they do before talking it out.

I was wrong about mute. I just used it on someone who's awful at posting and actively degraded my Hubski experience.

This is a great idea, though the language probably needs something more. It seems like most people mute users who are oblivious and bullheaded.

I've seen some conflict over the number. All of them are advocates (I think), but not necessarily researchers.

This is both the most thorough and concise piece I've read on the history of the conflict.

I wiped my mute list the moment I realized its scope. I'd be okay with it if my showmute idea is implemented, but with reservations.

This is Digg. Digg is fine. The world only needs one Digg.

The first one was a misunderstanding that we quickly resolved. The second was a hilarious parody thread where we all had fun. The third is this one where the rest of us are having a nice chat about possible modifications to the feature.

I made a post about the scope of the feature, not the specific mute. Probably wasn't clear about that.

I understand completely. I went and cleared out my mute list once I realized how it worked.

| Edit, also I'm not sure what you mean when you say "no one will see it." '

My understanding is it also keeps other people from seeing it, not just the person who muted. Uncle Ben would not approve.
