It's even worse than it appears.
Am I passionate about the idea of a modular newsletter system so writers can use the best editor, the one that fits them best, the one they've been using for decades? Yes, I am. I'll keep beating the drum. I won't stop. That's how I am until I get what I want. 😄#
When will someone launch a newsletter service that lets you use whatever editor you like. I predict that I will support that product in the new editor I'm working on. I don't want to do a newsletter service myself. Let's get something fun started.#
What makes a bug report good? It makes it easy for the dev to reproduce the problem. I have to see it myself to understand what the problem is. Your theory on what the problem is, or judgment on whether you followed the instructions is secondary. #
Unfortunately journalists don't stand for re-election. They are not term-limited. There is no journalism for journalism. Our opinions are not sought. But if we ever do get a chance to vote one of them out in some significant way, I bet a lot of people will line up to do it. I know I will. And I'm not talking about the people on Fox. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
