"We will also gradually return all the recent UI improvements such as comment ranking,"

please don't....

let ideas duke it out without the "hype" of "consensus" approval/disapprobation.....ZH has been much cooler to read in the "old school" format...and recent Ayn Rand warfare aside, i think it cuts down on some of the petty personal macho flame war stuff

Third the motion-

There is a lot of white space, between posts.  New format was even more scrolling to read everything. Why work harder? And if someone got junked  the min threshold made the flamed comment hidden, so showing up to the water cooler late,  you were like, "what is everyone talking about?"  "what did they say?" Which left you cut out of the loop. -which led to users parahrasing and erronously putting words in someone elses mouth as to what the comment was.  People put +1 when they like something and flame them when they don't. People were afronted when junked and much of the comments revolved around being junked or a junker in the midst.  I think enabling trolls by junking tools is a no no.  But keep the math section for posting I do think it keeps idiots out.  You could always ask trading questions too to weed some out.  Call it vocabulary day quiz... But hey, this is your site.  And I'm breaking rule #1 & 2 talking about it.

Regardless, thank you.  It's my favorite website. My home page and so very happy more and more are waking up by reading ZH.

Keeping the interwebs going post collapse is going to be an interesting challenge. Sadly, I think that most people will be too preoccupied with personal and family safety to pay the infrastructure much attention.

Good on you Sacrilege, TD and the rest at ZH.

I assume there is a contingency plan to keep key infrastructure rolling, even during chaos. At least I sincerely hope my government has such a plan. We have to keep pumping to keep a big part of the land dry over here in NL.

And yeah, good luck to you too.

Appreciate the dedication to make all this possible.

How about a 700 point drop, a 20 minute "All is well" speech by Obama followed by 5 minutes of incoherent stuttering by Bernanke.  Could your server handle that too?

If a 1000 pt drop comes in, a favorite quote comes to mind:
