Most unfortunate. Please excuse me smirking and chuckling in the background. :-)

I reread the Guardian article and got a further chuckle from that.

    It raises a valid point, IMHO the function should take into account the change made to hide nodes below the threshold put in place to hide such content from those who aren't logged in. That way when someone rolls the dice they don't end up looking at something that's hit the Worst Nodes page, and are more likely to random something harmless or possibly insightful, rather than depressingly stupid or dangerous.

    Who would have thought that a minor report about some unexpected behaviour from a feature that most Monks apparently don't use, could cause such amusement...
