    Your feed will be determined by the tags that you follow. The comments you see will be determined by the people you follow.

I, for one, would not like to see this change. I follow people because I'm interested in what those people have to say or links they have to share, whether that's in comments or post.

I think tags are far less useful here than they could be (though I don't have a solution for that), with the exception of tags managed by individuals or small groups (#weeklymusicthread, #kleinbl00batshittery, #thesundaypaper when I'm not lazy, etc).

I don't understand how out of one side of the WSJ's mouth they can talk about the K-shaped recovery, but also put this shit outside their opinion section

    During the 1918-1919 flu pandemic, some American cities closed schools, churches and theaters, banned large gatherings and funerals and restricted store hours. But none imposed stay-at-home orders or closed all nonessential businesses.

Oh wait, WSJ, you mean the 1918-1920 flu pandemic that lasted over two years and killed anywhere from 17 to 50 million people? Riiight.

    Covid Lockdowns: They’re Overly Blunt and Costly

Riiiight.

You could advertise the groups.io signup, etc... on your fancy url!

Never used it, but what about https://groups.io/ ?

How are you feeling? 'No blood cancer' sounds like good news to me but from chat it seemed like either way you're stuck between a rock or a hard place.

in broad strokes, Pabst, how do they paint the Iraq war over there when they teach it?
