Title:
Fully threaded comment tracking emails using more than two References: headers

Area:
comment tracking emails

Summary:
Fully threaded mailreaders use the References: header in the email to build the tree structure of emails, expecting to find *all* direct ancestor messages' message-ids in the header. Currently comment notification emails only include up to two message-ids in the References: header -- one for the post, one for the top comment in the thread -- preventing the actual tree structure from being built by the mailreader. If all available parent-comment-of-parent-comment message IDs are included, a correct tree structure will be available in the mailreader.

Description:
I tracked a large comment meme and sent it to a fully threaded mailreader, only to find that the tree structure of the comments was not preserved. Threaded mailreaders use the References: header to build the tree, and all direct ancestor comments of the comment in question should be included. Currently in the email the only message-ids included in the References: header are for the post and the top-level comment. Result in the mailreader: chaos (due to the large size of the comment threads). Solution: include more references (all parent and parent-of-parent comments) in the References: header.

Search in Broad Street, Swindon, where Halliwell lived moves to garage where sound of power tools is heard

Police search teams appear to be carrying out digging work inside a garage that was once owned by the double murderer Christopher Halliwell.

Wiltshire police said the search of two garages and two gardens in Swindon is expected to take five days. The force has not confirmed the operation is connected to Halliwell but one of the garages and gardens belongs to his former home in Broad Street.

The Treasury committee have questioned Bank of England governor Mark Carney, chief economist Andy Haldane, and policymakers Gertjan Vlieghe and Ian McCafferty

Earlier:

Better than expected eurozone growth figures and a strong start on Wall Street with yet more new peaks have combined to push European markets higher, despite continuing political worries ahead of the French presidential election.

But badly received results from HSBC have left the FTSE 100 lagging its peers. The final scores showed:

Over in Greece workers with the communist-aligned labour group, PAME have taken to the streets to protest the prospect of yet more austerity measures, our correspondent Helena Smith reports:

Thousands of protestors are marching en masse towards parliament in Syntagma square chanting: “we are not going to be spectators of our own wretchedness.” The demonstration is one of 40 taking place across Greece in protest over the government’s decision to agree to further talks with creditors in return for up front legislation of more unpopular cost-cutting measures.

Addressing the crowd, the communist KKE party leader Dimitris Koutsoumbas said: “While the government is writing, directing and playing in this new episode of deceit against the Greek people that has been played a thousand times before, we are here, in the struggle with the working class and the rest of the peoples’ movement, loudly shouting “it cannot go on!

Concern growing in the City that Brexit-related bank moves could unravel related professions and risk wider financial turmoil

The City of London has warned that the loss of banking jobs to EU countries due to Brexit could threaten British and European financial stability.

Interviews with more than half a dozen senior bankers and business leaders reveal growing certainty that the threat of losing single market access will force a wave of relocations this year and may cause an “unwinding” of a cluster of related businesses.

EU membership helped London become Europe’s biggest financial centre; a hard Brexit could spell the end of its dominance

Flanked by pop art from Andy Warhol to Jasper Johns, top officials from one of Wall Street’s biggest banks will gather at the British Museum for a bittersweet moment.

A month from now, the assembled financiers will sip champagne and nibble canapés to celebrate the 40 years Morgan Stanley – sponsor of the museum’s American Dream exhibition – has had a presence in the UK.

After meeting Brexit secretary, politicians stress they will negotiate as unified EU27 amid claims of UK ‘divide and rule’ tactics

Senior European politicians lobbied by the Brexit secretary, David Davis, during a whistlestop tour of the Baltic states have insisted they will negotiate with the UK as a unified bloc, and questioned the realism of Britain’s negotiating goals.

During visits to Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia over the last two days, Davis told his political counterparts there that he was confident a comprehensive EU-UK free trade agreement could be struck within the two-year time frame of article 50 talks.

• Shaun Edwards expects physical encounter against Scotland
• ‘Wales will try to bully us mentally,’ says Gordon Reid

Scotland’s gruelling encounter against France in Paris in the last round of the Six Nations saw two of their players ruled out of the rest of the championship. They expect Wales to try to bully them at Murrayfield on Saturday, but in a different manner to the overtly physical approach of Les Bleus.

The Scotland captain, Greig Laidlaw, and the No8 Josh Strauss sustained ankle and kidney injuries respectively that will keep them out of action for at least another month while four players received knocks to the head and had to complete the concussion return to play protocol.

Wednesday’s ruling will determine legality of £18,600 minimum income threshold for non-EU spouses to live in UK

The fate of tens of thousands of separated British families in which one parent is not entitled to live in the UK because they have failed to meet a minimum income threshold of £18,600 will be decided by the supreme court on Wednesday.

The ruling is to be a key test of the family migration rules introduced by Theresa May when she was home secretary in 2012, which have led to more than 15,000 British children growing up as “Skype kids”.

Title:
Reconsidering the Ability to Delete All Entries/Comments Associated With an Account Upon Deletion

Area:
accounts, entries, comments

Summary:
With the dramatic increase in recent years in both online and real-world harassment, I would like to consider revisiting the 2010 suggestion to give users the option to delete all entries/comments associated with an account upon account deletion.

Description:
The last time this suggestion was raised was in 2010, and it was rejected then. However, I think it's long past time to revisit the possibility of being able to delete all entries and comments associated with an account upon account deletion.

There are a lot of reasons people delete accounts. Sometimes those reasons are just a lack of time or interest, and that's okay. But sometimes those reasons get a lot more serious. We over-share sometimes. The people we meet online become friends, and we get lax about sharing personal information that perhaps shouldn't be shared in public internet spaces. Most of the time that never becomes a problem--most of the people we meet online are great. But sometimes the people who have access to your entries/posts/comments aren't great, and that can have repercussions irl just as easily as it can have repercussions online. The last few years have seen a dramatic uptick in everything from revenge porn to death threats to hacked accounts, and while stalking and real-world harassment are rare, they happen, and they're happening with increasing frequency. They happen often enough that (as of the time of this writing) a tumblr post about tips for how to disappear from the internet has over 760,000 notes.

Right now, Dreamwidth allows its users to delete comments manually, and to see the last 100/150 comments posted on paid/premium accounts, but many of us have posted thousands of comments over several years, and trying to find every single comment and offhand remark ever posted is an endeavor that's anxiety-inducing at best and impossible at worst. Giving users an option to automatically delete every post/comment they've ever made, even those made on outside communities or journals, would alleviate that burden entirely.

The biggest concern with this suggestion-and the concern that I saw raised most often on the 2010 post--was that it would inevitably leave conversations broken. There are ways to mitigate that: a suggestion I saw raised in the 2010 post was to add an "orphan all comments" feature in addition to a "delete all comments" feature. AO3 currently has a popular analogous option for those who want to remove their association with their fanworks without deleting them entirely. A quick review of several LiveJournal posts will also show that broken threads are in the minority, so we may not have to worry about that too much. Even if they weren't in the minority, though, it would still be a necessary evil; our conversations are important, but I don't feel that they should be more important than the safety of our users.

Title:
Icon Downloads

Area:
icons

Summary:
Ability to download all current icons on your journal (active or inactive).

Description:
I know that I'm not the only one that sometimes looks at their long list of icons after some kind of computer failure, and wants to back them up on the new machine. Or maybe they were linked by a url and you forgot to save them. Maybe you stopped having a paid account, but want to be able to reupload them with ease after you get a chance to pay for the account again (Submitting another suggestion on this topic as well).

I think it would be very helpful if there were some option that would let you batch save the image files currently on your account, preferably with the keyword or description as the name. Compression has improved and should allow users to download a backup of their icons in a zip file they can unpack on their computer.

In addition and/or alternatively, perhaps there is some way to make a metadata file that would take less room than the icons, but contain the information about them and their keywords and descriptions, or a file that can be added to the zip folder that contains this information to make the re-upload of icons easier.

Programmes from Upstairs Downstairs to Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway have been shot at the London Studios on the capital’s South Bank but it is to close as a result of plans to redevelop the broadcaster’s headquarters on the same site. The closure is expected to lead to the loss of 140 jobs.

Sales of premium pizzas are up by £20m, as the stores try to replicate the outlandish toppings found in trendy restaurants. But the experts aren’t convinced

In news that will have thin-crust aficionados reaching for the indigestion tablets, the Grocer reports that supermarket pizza sales are up and are now nudging a whopping £1bn a year. This growth has not been achieved by slashing costs and cut-price deals, but by gussying up pizza bases (“wood-fired”, stone-baked), and using upmarket, outlandish toppings. That this is happening while Britain’s high streets are undergoing their own pizza revolution is, surely, no coincidence.

Nationwide, independents such as London’s Pizza Pilgrims, Bristol’s Bertha’s and Newcastle’s Cal’s Own are popularising serious, Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas, as well as the notion that pizza can be a quality product worth a premium. Supermarkets are eagerly exploiting that trend, even if their gourmet pizzas are still most notable for their brittle, cardboardy bases and skinflint toppings. According to analysts Kantar Worldpanel, sales of posher, thin-crust supermarket pizzas are up by £20m, while chilled pizzas now outsell passé frozen by £103m a year.

• Cycling body provided paymaster with ‘summary’ of damning report
• Full report completed in 2012 but was only handed over in 2016

British Cycling’s reputation faces the prospect of another battering after it was accused of misleading UK Sport, the body that provides it with millions of pounds of public money each year, by covering up allegations of bullying in an internal report after London 2012.

Liz Nicholl, the chief executive of UK Sport, said British Cycling had displayed “a complete lack of transparency” by giving UK Sport a summary of an internal performance review conducted by its former CEO Peter King which did not accurately reflect the facts of the report.

Constituents say hospitals, jobs and local promises are more important than Brexit ahead of two votes on Thursday

National polling may be grim for Labour, but the party remains hopeful of holding off challenges from Conservative and Ukip candidates in Thursday’s byelections in Cumbria and Stoke-on-Trent.

We asked our readers living in the constituencies to let us know what they thought of the candidates, and which issues were most important in deciding their vote.
