    Goff 32 Crone 34 Swarbrick 20 on the Herald readers poll two minutes ago.

    3908 voters…..but Herald readers.

    Someone worked out why Trump makes all those little hand gestures during his speeches:

    #Noseflags

    Hate speech coded into innocuous-seeming words by racist trolls on 4chan to get past moderation. An expansion on their use of ((())) to signify Jews. “Google” means African-American, “Skype” means Jew, “Skittles” in an echo of Trump Jnr refers to Syrians, Arabs or Muslims in general (not all Muslims are Arabs and vice versa, but that sort of complexity would make their little brains explode):

    Wow. That is an odd bug. Never saw it before.

    If you go to the front page, and then keep going to “Older Entries”, the Feeds tab keeps different lists. Somehow the damn thing is picking up older feed lists…

    Sigh. Another thing to fix.
