    but it requires a click but it is better than nothing.  I'm thinking on someone just needs to hover to see it larger.  Maybe that's a mistake but I would like to use more detailed graphs and I just ran into formatting hell, I mean HELL on our own blog (I swear to God, friggin' wordpress editor is awful, you can turn it off and still have the php somewhere put in automated formatted overriding your hand coded XHTML) and on here too.  I also noticed dailykos
    doesn't validate to XHTML which I was thrilled because I've been having a hell of time getting the look and features I want and being XHTML validated.

    I guess I should be talking about this in an open thread but this diary has a lot of graphs and especially the economics stories the graphs really get compromised.

    It's bad enough on here there are an increasing number of cheerleading trolls who have nothing to really add, yet get uprated while the very detailed, well written analysis diaries, with graphs...are not even making it to recommended and in my view, gaining understanding of trade, economics, statistics is fairly important for people to see what's going on.
    Maybe I am in outerspace due to my math background...
    but this bugs me.

    •  that what the rescue rangers are for (0+ / 0-)

      write them if you see an overlooked diary pass by especially one with cool graphs.

      As Moynahan said, you can have your own opinion but you can't have your own facts.

      •  I need an email (0+ / 0-)

        I never see an email for them in order to send suggestions.   They get some of them, but I don't think these should be rescued,  I think they should get more attention period.   I see some pretty fluff stuff on the rec list, bonddad gets on there because he is like the economics thread clearing house but there are many others.

          •  glad to see that (0+ / 0-)

            I mean right now I am getting spammed and attacked for writing a diary about diversity in STEM and discrimination.  I am very aware of discrimination issues and diversity, and do my best to implement it in my job and also write about it...yet there I am getting accused on the thing I'm writing about to expose. It's unreal.  I wrote a story, way before it broke that there were some very bad hints from the federal reserve chairman and that the US was in danger of no longer being a reserve currency, which has massive economic repercussions...
            I literally got someone claiming the economist I quoted, which is a highly respected, valid economist in these circles...was akin to David Duke.  I mean this is just getting pathetic.  I spend a lot of time researching these stories trying to fill holes not covered by others and this is the sort of psycho behavior I'm seeing on here.  What's even more frightening are the plans already for us to work on a few campaigns in '08, who happen to be "netroots endorsed" candidates in congress.  How can I use the blogs to assist with this sort of insanity?  It's getting like to me.  (rant off)

            how do I fire off good diaries to the rescue rangers for now?  do they have an email like rescuerangers
            at a major email house such as google (gmail)?
