Yeah, this makes sense to me, the front page could have
the promoted newswire by default and have a view all posts
link which swaps the content of the right hand col (as nyc
and www have).
*However* how will the archives, topics and regions work?
Unless these can be left showing all unhidden posts it
could get very complicated... take the newswire archives
If the centre col here only has promoted articles and not
both types then how would one get to any material that is
a couple of years old and hasn't ever been promoted...?
