ncm, writing about what's off-topic for advogato, observes that kgb's diary entries have strayed far from Advogato's purpose. Fair enough, and I don't suppose he deserves a very high rating, but it bothers me that the diary of someone who's done important work with linux gets rated below 3. Three thoughts: (i) I don't usually read at thresh=3, far too noisy; so why don't other folk rate noisy diaries of worthwhile people at 3 or 4, and read recentlog at thresh=4.1 or higher? (ii) Advogato would benefit from having some filtering technology for syndicated diaries; and (iii) Failing that, one can syndicate to advogato from some third-party filtering service like yahoo pipes.
I noticed more advogato html reformatting brokenness: doing all of: (i) line- breaking text when re-editing entries, even in the middle of tags (ii) escaping the <s and >s from tags broken across lines into their amperstand-id-semicolon html character identifier, and (iii) adding missing closing tags at the end of diary entries; together and in that sequence these amount to a lot of nuisance editing diary entries with all but the very simplest html markup in them. Just saying.
