This front page post contains a video that is autoplaying: http://www.dailykos.com/...

Those of us using iPads and iPhones are unable to turn it off.  Every time we load the front page we hear Sarah Silverman yelling at us.  We have to scroll down (and now that the diary has scrolled well off the screen we have to keep scrolling for a while!) until we find the video and can stop it.  We might have liked her before, but I for one am sick of hearing her voice blaring at me!

I have contacted the help desk but haven't yet received a response.  Assuming they got some (well-deserved) time off for the holidays, I'm posting this diary in hopes the issue will come to somebody's attention more quickly.  

The timing for this, with the fund drive and all, just stinks.

I hope this doesn't happen again.

Activists? Go here for REAL activism!

by politik

anotherdemocrat has a challenge diary up right now.  

As usual, it's not getting the attention it deserves.

Please go rec up that diary, and if you can spare some change, I'll match your donation up to $50.

Come on.  This is an opportunity for you to do something good.  anotherdemocrat doesn't get into the pie fights here, she goes out and does something active in her community.  Let's give her some support, ok?

Egypt Liveblog: Sub-Diary #36

by politik

Please go to the NEW CHILD DIARY #37 now.

You are in the the 36th Child Diary of the Liveblog of the 2011 Egyptian Uprising and other uprisings spreading throughout the Mideast.  We stand with our Egyptian friends and their courageous struggle for freedom.

DO NOT REC THIS DIARY!  Rec the Mothership here.

(The idea is to keep the Mothership visible on the rec list, with links therein to the child diaries where we can discuss the events.  This prevents multiple liveblog diaries taking up slots on the rec list.)
