America, Behold Thy Future

Constitution Burning

My heart is rather heavy this morning. I actually came across this story last night, but was so depressed by it that I just couldn't bring myself to say what I so badly wanted to say.

The parallels are disheartening in their striking similarity to what would become of this country if we continue down this road we're on. Though I've been slightly encouraged by events that are small indications that the United States is waking up and reversing course, I am by no means comforted by such minor happenings.

As I've said many times, the basic underlying principle of our founding documents is that every American should be allowed to do whatever she wants, so long as she doesn't interfere with any other American's right to do the same. We have strayed so far from that ideal!

We Know What You Were Doing!

Via the AP wire:

A State Trooper in Washington noticed an SUV on the road that looked like a good bet for a drunk driver. He pulls it over, and upon investigation, finds...

...the driver and his female passenger were naked, with alcohol containers in the vehicle. They apparently had been interrupted in the middle of an intimate act, said Trooper Jeff Merrill, a State Patrol spokesman.

A 19-year-old Seattle man was arrested for investigation of drunken driving, a gross misdemeanor, and investigation of embracing while driving, which Merrill said was a misdemeanor. The 20-year-old Seattle woman was cited for being a minor in possession of alcohol, he said.

The message here? Nekkid and drunk is fine, but nekkid, drunk, and driving is NOT! Make sure you're on foot whilst having drunken sex in the public square!

Caution: Accidental Profile Deletion is WAY too easy!

So, last night I was trying to change the photo on my profile and deleted my entire account instead. (This caused all the content I had created to disappear -- or become disconnected from any user on the site, and so become invisible). I nearly destroyed the site. If you noticed that the site was offline for a while last night, that's why. (Chris has sworn to spank me in public for this, even though I fixed the problem before he got home from the theater, so you might want to plan to attend the launch party!)

Anyway, here's how easy it is to do, and how to avoid doing it:

There are two buttons at the bottom of your profile's "Edit" page. One says "submit" and the other says "delete." Let's say you want to delete the photo you've got there and replace it with another one. Do NOT accidentally or reflexively click "Delete." Always click "submit" for any change you make. And if you look at the page and don't make any changes, of course click "submit" to leave it as it is.

In general, where profiles are concerned, when in doubt: SUBMIT!

Feeds by Feedburner

You'll notice new feed icons on the upper left sidebar. I added a Feedburner module this morning and then burned our feeds over at Feedburner. If you've already subscribed you should be redirected automatically, so don't worry. If you notice any problems, let me know. 

A big reason for adding the Feedburner module was so that members with blogs on the site could usse it to track their own feeds. If you make use of that option let me know how it's working out!
