I made a similar post last year and you made a similar comment. On the other hand, it was front paged by tye and not considered by anyone so it seemed like others felt that this met the criteria of an exception. I have no problem with it being moved but wonder why you bothered replying if it was to be moved?
Update: In re-reading last year's thread, I see tye agreed it belonged in news but opted not to move it. I must have misremembered. I still think either considering to move it, a /msg or just moving it would have been sufficient. Now the reply looks out of place.
