New feature in the works: Reblog with tags!
This was an idea brought to be by callmeblake. The concept is to allow you to automatically keep the tags from the original post when reblogging.
I’ve got it working (not released yet, though), but I need feedback!
Basically, I’ve got two options:
Automatically add the tags from the original post by default (I’m adding a Clear Tags button you can use to support this)
Start with no tags, and add another button (like “copy tags” or “reblog tags” or something) that will add the original post’s tags
Either way, I think the “Clear Tags” button is useful enough to keep.
What do you guys think? Option 1 or Option 2?

HEY EVERYONE! If you’re not using Missing E yet, you’re missing out on a plugin that’s about to do this.

Washington is paralyzed by snow and partisanship. Nothing is getting done – even as the Great Recession pulls more Americans into its maw. In the midst of this paralysis, the President was asked about the giant pay packages of Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan Chase & Co. ($17 million for 2009) and…

Kirk Cameron feels disadvantaged against Stephen Hawking
“Like bullying a blind man”: That was what former sitcom actor and adamant Christian activist Kirk Cameron complained it was like to say anything negative about Stephen Hawking. “He has an unfair disadvantage, and that gives him  a free pass on some of his absurd  ideas.” It’s a crass and lowly insult to Hawking to suggest that he’s the benefit of an “unfair disadvantage,” which clearly refers to his ALS. Especially because it implies that he’s the beneficiary of some sort of sympathy within the scientific community, as opposed to what he is; the owner of a magnificent mind that’s he’s used to bettering humankind. Whatever you might say about Growing Pains, we reckon that contribution doesn’t measure up. source

We’ve also had 20 years of an anti-gay hate campaign waged by the religious right where they’ve been telling parents who then expose their straight children to this rhetoric that ‘gay people are an attack on the family, that they’re trying to destroy the family.’ And [parents] at the mega-church listen to this stuff and they go to the ballot box and abuse gay and lesbian abstractions with their votes. Their kids go to school on Monday and there’s the queer kid or the kid who’s perceived to be queer because he’s gender non-conforming in some way. And they feel they have license to attack that kid because that kid attacked them first by simply existing. That’s what the religious right has injected into the culture over the past 20 years.
