Mahakala -

I was just thinking the same thing...

How come things get greenlit many times over in a short period of time? I thought the point of TF was filtering out things like this.
2004-12-20 11:16:48 PM  
repeat. repeat.
2004-12-20 11:18:05 PM  
What is it with all the repeat articles this week? Don't the admins RTFA? Seriously, there has to be newer news stories not getting greedlighted...

Small town in Louisiana to receive phone service for the first time again
2004-12-20 11:20:00 PM  
Maybe it's a different small town in Louisiana. You know, since the phone company wired one of them, it probably wouldn't cost much more to get the other one.

Simple economics, people.
2004-12-20 11:21:44 PM  
TWO centuries too late? Sorry, the phone wasn't invented in 1805
2004-12-20 11:22:39 PM  
I see this trend of repeats growing. Maybe somebody should make a graph.

"Hello Pete, this is repeat."

Fark to post article about Small town in Louisiana to receive phone service for the first time for the second time.
2004-12-20 11:25:00 PM  
Coming from someone who attends college in Louisiana? It's perfectly reasonable this is a wholly different town that's just getting telephone service. Seriously.

how do you say repeat in cajun?
2004-12-20 11:26:01 PM  
What is the secret to submitting links that have already been submitted? I can't submit websites because someone submitted some old thing in 2002, even though the site might have been updated daily since then.

Before I gave up, about 90% of my submissions had already been submitted, but never even appeared on Fark.

I just decided to sit back and enjoy whatever shows up, since the submission process was too baffling.

Hey I could call my maw from up here. HEY MAW GET OFF THE DANG ROOF.

2004-12-20 11:29:21 PM  
Why should Bellsouth care about the big expense? Haven't we been paying that stupid tax every month in our phone bill for years to wire these yuks? If that ain't happening and Bellsouth still has to foot the bill, then I want my money back dag-nabbit!

I have not lived in/visited Louisiana in 23 years, but somehow I'll bet, even without RTFA, that Placqueman's Parrish (sp?) is at the root of this retardation/segregation

Pete and Repeat submitted two identical URLs. Pete got the "Bad Kitty!" flash. Who got their URL submitted?
2004-12-20 11:39:34 PM  
Oh sure, I submit articles until my face turns blue and every one of them gets rejected, but repeat articles make it through. Something seriously wrong here.
2004-12-20 11:43:23 PM  
I was pretty dumbfounded that this article got accepted once. But now it's been accepted twice?
2004-12-20 11:44:23 PM  
Okay, all other Farkers who have ever lived in a single-wide in Loosiana plz raise your hands.

You mean I can't get an article greenlit but all these people can post dupes.... WTF?
2004-12-21 12:22:31 AM  
Is this for real, or is it just a story from 1964 that got greenlighted? How are we to know, after all?
2004-12-21 12:27:20 AM  
And how come half the Liters can spot these duped threads in two seconds flat, when the Mods can't?

Mr. Shirley: "Look, uh, sometimes things look good on paper, but lose their luster when you see how it affects real folks. I guess a healthy bottom line doesn't mean much, if to get it you have to hurt the ones you depend on. It's people that make the difference, little people like you. So, Carl, whatever you got last year, add 20 percent."

O.K. The article is a repeat. Big deal. I, for one, welcome our severely memory-impaired moderator overlords. And in any case, the last time this article appeared, so many comments sent it to infinity so fast that I didn't bother to post my brilliant comment, which is this:

First phone in town rings, and is answered, and the person who answers it hears, "Mister Watson, come here, I want you."

And the crowd goes crazy.
