I have sometimes put new ideas up which displace another idea which I quite enjoyed and still had leeway for annotation. Rather than this we should be able to pick the idea to displace therefore dispensing with naff ideas (say, ideas involving pants!) whilst those with more public acclaim could stay visible longer.

       the recent 3 = the overview ; but to your left is another recent option (the one I use) which is just a list of the most recently annotated ideas, hence the most popular at the moment. What am I wittering on about - anyway try it for size dare99

       better than dear old scuttled though. perhaps there should be a competition for rotten spelling.

       Bet I'll win

       my money is on scuttled - he speaks a whole new language

       Now that you mention it, po, that enlightens me. Here I've spent all this effort trying to learn German and French and Italian, etc., and it turns out they're all just poor spellers.

       hummm i think that not only are german writers very good spellers (unlike me), they feel compelled to show off about it by having 30+ char words all over the damn place. You get a vascular workout just speaking the damn language.

       German should only be spoken by stunt linguists...

       I think you'd find that German (and other non-English) speakers think about the same of English. Maybe moreso.

       [marked–for–deletion] [dare99] didn't know about views.

       That may well be correct, but this can still stand on its own as a suggestion for a group censorship mechanism.

       And another thing about Germans - they're always mispelling their homeland. As bad as the Japanese.
