  • Found the jerk who's doing this on slashdot. Of course, as a mozilla user, it doesn't affect me.

    What if you do something like put in a <br> every 20 words or so if the post exceeds a certain period to character ratio? It seems like there has to be some way to fix it.

    Can a person use the foes system to make posts appear at -2? That might help moderators who browse at -1. (Wish I knew what that was like; 50-karma though I am, with almost half of my stories accepted, I never get to moderate slash

    • The only way to fix it is to munge possibly legitimate posts. That is a poor option at best.

      What annoys me about this one is that users can mess up a web page using only ASCII characters. No tags, no entities. Just plain text. That is so exceedingly lame, and I shouldn't have to bother with it. If it became a huge problem, we probably would do something, but it would be lame.

      As to -2: no, -1 is the lowest. But yes, most users won't have to bother. If you want to view at -1 and use MSIE for Windows, well, then you get screwed. Since we have no good options, that's the way it is going to be for now.
