Take it easy on the kid, SilverFox316; everybody kills Hitler on their first trip. I did. It always gets fixed within a few minutes, what's the harm?

  1. Michael,

    Did you recently change the stylesheets here at discourse.net? If so, please “revert”.

    Since yesterday, your blog has been unreadable unless I turn the page style off. Specifically, the left and right sidebars now show up _inside_ the box margin around the main content. Both sidebars overlay the post text.

    I’m using NoScript ver 1.5.6 with Firefox ver 2.0.0.13. A little bit of page rendering weirdness isn’t unexpected with NoScript, but this has gotten much worse than it used to be.

    Please revert to your old style.

    I haven’t changed a thing in about a year.

    I am, however, able to replicate the problem. I’ll try to debug it when I can. In the mean time, tell NoScript to allow scripts from discourse.net and it should render fine.

    Maybe we could find John Yoo’s parents?

    OK. Thanks. Then the problem is probably due to upgrading NoScript to the most recent version. I thought I had been reading here since the last time I upgraded NoScript, but I can’t really say for absolute, 100%, positive swear-to-god sure. So that seems my next best guess.

    I’m browsing through Tor, so NoScript gets turned off for no one…. too much chance of a MITM. I’ll just stick to turning off the page style for now.

    Thanks again.

    Nice one, Joe, but let’s not forget that Yoo, for all his moral, professional and (presumably) personal failings, was not a rogue actor. He was giving his bosses exactly what they wanted.

    And our society rewarded him with a position at Boalt Hall. Shame on that institution, the students who said nothing, and all of us for our complicity.

    I believe that NoScript 1.5.8 fixes the problem.

    Sorry that I didn’t check back here again before now.

    NoScript 1.6 is working for me.

    Thanks again.
