in reply to Don't Retitle This Node

I agree with you, but I also think the editors should've stepped in and removed "Emergency!" from the title.

MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

    As the newbie poster who started the other thread, I now agree that using "Emergency" was a bit extreme...however, it was late at nite and I just found how bad "our" guestbook had been clobbered...so to me..it was such... SORRY! And as to retitle, I had enough trouble finding my way around this (to me) slightly unusual format of a forum...so had it been done, I might NOT have been able to locate the GREAT replies, ok?

      Had it been done, the editors would've notified you that they changed the title of your node, so you would've been able to find it.

        No, it doesn't appear that the latest version of the Janitorial thread retitler sends any /msgs. That'd be a good idea, but it won't work for anonymous root nodes. So there is still reason to err on the side of being Lazy.
