Mods, why were threads removed from breaking news?!?!

Posted on 08/25/2010 11:32:21 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

I did not see eiither of them posted and could not imagine how these do not qualify as breaking news!

No indication of a mod removing them from breaking news.

Let me broaden the question. What exactly is Breaking News, and what is not Breaking News? And why do some things stay in Breaking News for as much as a day or two, long past the "breaking," whereas other things get pulled as soon as a mod sees them?

Both were in Breaking News.....then I was logged out of FR for some reason (computer malfunction?).....when I logged back on both were removed from Breaking News.

IMO, these are 2 of the biggest stories of the past 24 hours.

When you look under “topics” at the bottom
of the article, both say they were posted
in News/Activism .. not Breaking.. unless
that was altered.

Personally, I’ve noticed that issue before
with the mod/mods on night duty. There’s
a noticably different ‘approach’ in operation
by those in charge in the evening.

This should explain everything, and if not there is an interpretive dance based on it on Youtube.

>>>>What exactly is Breaking News, and what is not Breaking News?

Breaking news is something that would cause even ESPN to break coverage of whatever was on air and talk about when it’s not sports.

Dunno. But I think it has something to do with pancakes or mooses ... or maybe a beeber. Stuning, I know.

If I were running the place, breaking news would be as I said about ESPN... as far as I'm concerned, what's considered "breaking news" is given a rather liberal definition around here.

The Rasmussen daily poll results have been posted twice prior to yours already. Just beacuse you titled it diferently doesn’t make the news any different

It’s you.

Only because it’s you.

If anyone else but you had posted these threads, they would have been “Breaking” for a week, with permanent insertion (in red) into the top banner.

But it’s you.

So they aren’t.

And they never will be.

Just because of you.

If you Super-Glue a Lego piece to your finger, it really does stick. And it is extremely difficult to remove it.

I'm just trying to save you some trouble, in case you doubt the instructions on things, like I do sometimes.

Oh, and you know where it says on the gas pumps "Not be be ingested?" of "For external use only?"

Yeah, that one's pretty much true as well.

I did it, my fault.

I printed them both out and didn't hit save afterwards.

Apparently this removes threads from Free Republic.

I'm going to buy more paper and experiment a bit, this may be hugh...

They’re trying to tell you to FReepmail the mods with a question of this nature instead of opening a thread.

But a fun thread it this! You’re a nice guy though, so I hope you don’t get the ZOT.

I hear a lot of girls find this beeber stuning:

him and some sort of sparkly vampire or something. I don't bother keeping track of these things; I find my sanity is better preserved when I don't.

Now what's all this fuss over Rasmussen breaking some sort of news to a waiter at a mosque?

as far as I'm concerned, what's considered "breaking news" is given a rather liberal definition around here.

I've posted 3,875 articles and not one did I put in "Breaking News", most of what I post are editorials anyway and go in "News/Activism".

The truly "Breaking News" articles get posted at least a dozen times before I could even get started.

I think today’s story about Michelle Obama’s “cleansing” fetish would qualify.

The moderation of the breaking news sidebar is capricious at best. Some days, anything goes, others - not so much. I’m kind of old-school... and think “breaking news” ought to be something very, very serious - something just shy of activating the emergency alert system and telling the world to put their heads between their legs and kissing their butts goodbye.
