Data Has No Right to Integrity
The script is still working. It's just that I "manually" edited a posting of mine at the same time that you were posting a reply.
So that my edited "original" overwrote the "original" marked up with your reply.
The result is that you can reach the entire thread through the home page, but not sequentially through the individual bead-pages of the thread.
No loss. We'll quickly forget the entire thing.
Data has no right to "integrity" independent of our human interest, however individually or collectively we may care to negotiate that.
