Question About Armstrong Post: After reading the book, no doubt is left in the reviewer's mind as to Armstrong's guilt. If this is a quote from the article, shouldn't it be in quotes? And if it isn't, it's editorializing, and doesn't belong in a fpp.

Bug: Spofi eats comments: Apparently if a comment is considered "too long" (I'm guessing), Spofi simply trashes it without warning or option for recovery.
Is spofi ailing? : Is it just me or is anyone else seeing many many many "connection failed"s lately?
Guess I didn't get the memo: Newbies have to take a sports quiz to join SpoFi, but they can't view a chunk of the site "guidelines"? More inside.
Thread-pissing: can we have a little civil discussion about what constitutes thread-pissing, and what editorial policy toward it is (and should be)? There's been a bit of it lately, or at least allegations of same (I'm thinking of three, possibly four different threads, which I'll reference if anyone wants).
Guidelines update request: can we put something in there about no damn AOLisms? The influx of "LOL" makes me want to hurl.
Would you know the right thing if you saw it? : Currently, the front page has the most recent of several FPPs about injured NFL players being tossed on the scrap-heap. We know it happens, now let's talk about doing the right thing.
Is it just me...: or is there no simple and obvious link to the posting guidelines (not the "what's a good FPP", but the lengthier, "what is an asshat and how not to be one" guidelines)?
Helping the Fugees: with Fence's great FPP about the Fugees as inspiration, I found the Fugees Family website. I know sometimes we have very informal charity drives here in the Locker Room, so I'm putting the Fugees out there. I'm gonna kick in (kick, get it? heh heh heh). Anyone else?
The music is in the mail: I just dropped three CDs to various places in the US and one to god knows where in China in the mail. I sure hope someone can interpret that address that I wrote, because except for the recipient's name and CHINA none of it makes any sense to me. Here's hoping it gets there!
Best set of man-boobs: Bill Parcells.
SpoFi Field Trip: The WNBA playoffs will be under way very shortly, and there's no way the Connecticut Sun aren't gonna bring it home this year...and no way I'm not gonna be there. Anyone interested in catching a playoff game or two at Mohegan Sun?
There aren't limits...: but maybe there could be. This is gonna sound a little nutty, but is it altogether out of the question to think of amending the posting guidelines to suggest brevity as a virtue?
...or at least, if what you write contains nothng sports-related?
Houston, we still have a problem. : We need a solution to the column problem, and we need it quickly. I don't personally care what it is. I understand how the Pantheon Denizons may want to solve the technical problem, but this is a bit fiddling while Rome burns. If the column gets posted, it doesn't matter if it got that way through technical automatic-post-yer-column whizbang or by human agency. However, if it gets posted a week or two weeks or three weeks late, and it contains information that once was timely, it really won't matter in the least how cool the method of posting was.
We need a resolution on this, or the next discussion is going to have to be whether the Torino 2006 project will take place or not, and what site (other than SpoFi) will host it. Yes, I'm quite serious. Three or four columns have been written, some of them are, what, a couple of weeks old? And they're still not posted. There's no point in writing them if this is how it's going to be.
Column post page don't work. : skydivedad ran into this too -- error creating category.
Without this working, the only way I know to post a column is to send it to rcade, which I did on Friday...and it's still not up. Not to begrudge rcade his long weekend, but this is gonna be a problem in the near future if people are trying to post timely stuff for Torino 2006, and it has to get put up manually by some pantheon-denizon.
Never mind the goddamned ponies. : Just either get rid of the damn colon in the FPP preview, or put it in the damn post. One or the other. Please.
Torino 2006 update: see more inside.
Editorializing in FPPs: okay or no? : I'd like to hear what people think about the practice of injecting one's own opinion in FPPs. Obviously it's always in there in some degree -- we choose what we want to FPP, after all -- but should there be limits?
Let the games begin! : Similar to redsnare's recent suggestion, I'm wondering if there are a few good SpoFites who would join me in writing a collective Torino Olympics column. The thought I had was that each of us could pick a couple of sports to write about -- nothing too heinous, necessarily; it could just be, "What are those wacky short-track speedskaters up to now?" You don't have to be an expert on the sport, just a decent writer and willing to spend some time up to and during the 'lympics to do a little research and writing. Anyone join me in this one?
The Spofys: I just had this weird idea, inspired by a Weedy comment in a recent thread ("Worst. Thread. Ever."). What about having a locker-room-based "awards show", a la the Espys, Oscars, etc.? Worst Thread would definitely be one category; I'm sure there would be plenty of others. Nominations, voting, emcees, the envelope please!
Fun or idiotic?
