Question because I’m not actually sure how this will pan out. If the other members work out a deal without USA between Iran, China, Russia, and EU what exactly will happen? Is it possible we can have our cake and eat it too. Or will this just further alienate us from all parties involved?

Except in the case here the name was exactly the same. Passing away and being dead are the exact same thing. Enforcing that they have to include TMZ in the title is basically forcing TMZ branding onto the death of a person, in my view, so I would think you could let it slide, given the situation.

As for the other rule, that makes sense and I get that.

What does bother me is your obnoxious "Oh PLEASE :)" response when you're in a position to give an apologetic and polite response (acting professionally and with class). There's no call to act like that as a mod. We're all on the same side here (or should be).

Agreed, it wasn't "professional", but to suggest the modteam (& the WHOLE team would have to be in collusion, we fact-check each other all the time) are in the payoff a minor subsidiary of a news organisation is pretty ludicrous :) The submission broke a documented rule, it was flaired as such & removed, and the next-most recent submission was approved in it's place

First off, do I look like a mod of /r/news? Nope, I never modded anything bigger than /r/Portland, and that was bad enough, thank you.

Secondly, police officers have discretion, too, outside of a few select situations.

Third, your response is why I never want to mod a default. You want the rules to work for you, not for the whole. I don't doubt there have been other submissions removed for the same reason, where you would support the removal, while othera wouldn't. So why is your interpretation of the rule better than anyone elses? That's why it's a bright-line test. So that personal feelings about the situation don't get involved.

Exactly, the rules have to work for the whole, we enforce rules, it's not a choice matter, if it breaks a rule, we enforce it.

Hurricane Harvey is now a category 4 storm. It is expected to produce winds that could reach 125-155 mph and anywhere from 15-30 inches of rain and potentially as much as 60 inches of rain in some places according to some models. This will be a long storm and if you are in its path, it may be too late for you to evacuate. Make sure you follow emergency management advice.

In some areas, officers have been ordered to cease responding to emergency calls until the storm relents. Stay safe out there!

You can access information from FEMA about the storm at http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/#Harvey.

This thread has been locked because of personal information and racism.

People are posting 4chan links to supposed images of the suspects and the rape in progress. They are also naming the alleged suspects and guessing at their religious backgrounds, despite the police publicizing only the birth dates of the victim and suspects.

Here at /r/news we take personal information very seriously because of the events of the Boston bombing. As such, we will remove all names, photos, etc of victims and suspects until such time as they have been identified by official sources AND publicized.

Unfortunately, the comments relating to personal information have gotten so out of hand that we are locking the thread. We've seen what happens when reddit witch-hunts run unchecked and we aren't going to let it happen again.

Funny how Reddit didn't really cause a huge shit storm about the innocent black people that the cops killed over the past few years, didn't care about the black people that were executed in church or all those black people that were assaulted at Trump rallies.

r/news is for all news. r/worldnews is specifically for news outside of the USA. It is appropriate for both subs.
