Think ftp puts it really well here, but also it is true we can work as a
common point for reporting what is being commentated and reported on. So
rather than hiding we should have the previously almost agreed 'Other
Press and Blogs' topic, articles for which may or may not have uk
(un)ticked - and we can put a nice big link to it somewhere when folks
can get at templates. Finally we can keep working for a more elegant
note of dissent:
Proposal to make topic Sunday. Follow-up discussion to imc-uk-features
