mods, what's up with the ask a catholic thread?

it keeps showing on the feed as having multiple new posts, yet nothing new is ever there. is it because dana is again ceaselessly editing her posts? i even tried posting in it yesterday and it didn't show. it's really annoying. can a mod please check it out?

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."

You mean this?  http://www.rationalresponders.com/forum/34587?page=1#comment-411101

And you're right about repeated edits showing up as new posts.

There are no theists on operating tables.

wow, the second page of that

wow, the second page of that thread is formatted in the weirdest way. my post comes somewhere near the top of the page, even though it's newer than most others. maybe it's just my browser.

I messaged Brian about it a

I messaged Brian about it a couple days ago. If enough people want I can try pruning out a few messages and see if that works. New posts are still there, but the 2nd page is totally fucked and they won't display. I think it might be something Dana did with the formating of her post, unintentionally of course, but without ripping posts out I can't know for sure. My experience with using the tools here is limited, so I'm reluctant to start pulling it apart. I don't want to delete anything, and I'd rather not screw anyone's posts up. But the risk should be fairly low, hopefully worst case scenario is we end up with a few different topics.
One thing that is concerning is it almost kinda looks like bits of the topic are fused with the op's older topic. *shrug*

Woo! It was some formating by Dana. There were two html tags that looked like potential topic breakers. I deleted them and everything is good. No posts appear to have been lost.
