Greetings Soylentils! And welcome to SoylentNews!

We are here to deliver the best community-sourced news, catered for all manner of nerd! Because this is a grassroots based platform, the content feeds are powered by readers like you. Our main objective is to highlight news stories on the web that are of importance to everyone, but especially nerds. In addition, SoylentNews will strive to go beyond simple news-aggregation, with some core principles:
  • Providing a soapbox for experts to discuss their profession and solicit questions from a curious audience.
  • Allowing the community to comment, without any mandatory registration.
  • Staying mindful of the community's needs and wants while avoiding changes to satisfy an overarching corporate agenda.

We want to make this your source for news about technology, art, and science. We are the new kid on the block and are adapting quickly to satisfy our community's needs, as we look forward to exceeding your expectations and pushing boundaries like never before. Lastly, there will be no changes in format without a general consensus from the community. Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the ride!

    It was copy-paste from the fine articles that always used to get f*cked up:
    Gábor Szabó
    Jussi Sydänmaa
    Ivar Bjørnson
    Yavuz Çetin
    Alirio Díaz

    But yes - hoorah for those who finally said both "we've had enough" and "and I'm going to do something about it".

      The HTML source for that is:
      <div id="comment_body_1168"><p>It was copy-paste from the fine articles that always used to get f*cked up:<br>G&#195;&#161;bor Szab&#195;&#179;<br>Jussi Syd&#195;&#164;nmaa<br>Ivar Bj&#195;&#184;rnson<br>Yavuz &#195;&#8225;etin<br>Alirio D&#195;&#173;az</p><p>But yes - hoorah for those who finally said both "we've had enough" and "and I'm going to do something about it".</p></div>

      And this time, I'm hoping firebug records the data I send as I try to send an A-twiddle:
