 I agree with raph that the most recent article wasn't appropriate for the site .. but it's hard to see how this situation could be improved.

 My initial thought was to have the articles only visible to people of "Master" rank or above(?), at which point it could be rated.

 If there were a voting that was positive, in some way, it could go live.

 This is similar to the way that I belive Kuro5hin works though I've never studied the mechanics - and vaguely Perl Monks-like.

 Sadly despite my hacks on Advogato's code, (probably causing more harm than good), I'm still constantly confused by the multiple repositories and the XML stuff.

 Every now and again I think about writing a similar construction in Perl which I could understand - but that would be a worthless duplication of effort. If it worked it would steal viewers from here, and if it didn't without an audience it'd be pointless.

 Never enough hours in the day .. that's my trouble!
