Breaking news - Not any more?

This post on the shooting of three Mounties was deleted with the reason that we should wait until the situation has been resolved before posting. I don't have a problem with that per se but it seems like a serious departure from previous policy on huge breaking news stories (and this story is massive in Canada) for a post that was, IMO, well constructed with authoritative sources and even video of the event. Has there been a shift in policy to curtail discussion of breaking news until all the details are in? More generally should we be moving away from giving stories like these time on the front page until they move off the 24 hour news cycle? [more inside]

AskMe and the kosherness of friend-linking

A friend (really, it's not me) designed and manufactures a product at the hobby level that would potentially solve a question on AskMe. [The more, she is inside.]

Can anonymous Askers mark best answers?

Can anonymous Askers mark best answers? If not, can we get this feature added to the planned anonymous enhancements?

No tinyurls please

Can we please not use tinyURL in postings and especially in FPPs.

They are of no benefit and they put a another layer of vulnerability between readers and the content. And they are guaranteed not to work at some point in the future.

Not only do the URLS expire they are recycled. So even if they don't point to tubgirl now they might in the future.

Do single link front page posts irritate the heck out of anyone but me?

Do single link front page posts with no addtional text and no clue to contents of the destination in the link text irritate the heck out of anyone but me?
