Y'know, I think it's pretty extreme to say "Screw The Torch", when it is merely one part-time guy at the Torch who is acting like a complete arsebiscuit. Not to mention that he's the worst person writing at the Torch.
Pato Hooray, I'm useful. I'm having a wonderful time.
Eh, the Torch has a lot of problems right now. It's not just one jerk - it's the complete lack of interesting material on the site. They appear to have - max - two people with any sort of access - and at best three columnists with any ability to write coherently.
FINALLY figured this out. There was a time zone problem that didn't affect ME (on account of I'm in the "correct" time zone ) but WAS affecting people elsewhere. God knows how long THAT'S been going on, but it's fixed NOW.
