Have you ever noticed that most of the guys' names in tech start with J? James, another James, a third James, Jeremy, Jason, Jeff... And who's in charge of the forum? Jordan.

ZOMG, another conspiracy.

Back to what 420 said, I've definitely seen it a lot lately. The CE sends a ridiculous rewrite request, you actually do it, and then they either sit on it forever and hit approve or they let it expire out of their queue. I had a pretty moronic rewrite request that I did fast--basically, I politely told the CE that their assumptions were flat out wrong because they were--and they finally approved it yesterday after it sat for like 3 days. And they admitted they were wrong. I had planned on leaving CE feedback for them lacking expertise, but I might not now because they actually got what I was saying, admitted their mistake and apologized for the retarded rewrite. I guess I'm just too nice.

There only are four CEs left, and they keep bouncing all the articles around to each other. It's DMS's version of playing Hot Potato.

Things have changed in tech for me. Lately all of my articles have gone through and I've been getting 5's. Happened all of a sudden too. With the occasional "good job" thrown in.

Which leads me to believe that a) I'm incredibly lucky and am getting the same CE b) the CE's are realizing they're doing a lot of work for $4 and are just letting things go through or c) The douche CE's have left.

Judging by Clue's rewrite posts though, I don't think C is an option.

One potato, two potato, three potato, four; Five potato, six potato, seven potato, more. O-U-T spells "out you go." :P
