Why Don't Hidden Posts Get Hidden
13 Apr 2006
When material is removed from the newswire it doesn't go away!

It stays up (for days sometimes) with a 'hidden' tag although its still very much visible.

Right now there are three articles regarding flipside taking up space on the local newswire even though when you open them they say hidden. Which means people aren't able to respond to the post with comment and the people spewing this trash get to say their piece.

I don't know if it is a software issue or what but i think it's an issue and limits how useful boston imc is.

This work is in the public domain

BIMC has been working to create a new website for a long time. |ts tough with an all volunteer staff, most of whom are heavily involved in other projects and have jobs etc. We hope to cover a lot of these issues eventually. Thanks for complaining, its the only way we hear your voice. Anybody else have ideas?
Still Doesn't Answer The Question

You dogged the question though. Why does a post stay on the newswire after it has been hidden??
