The NHC has the power to make warnings, watches, and generally massive effect businesses and livelyhoods just on that alone. For that reason alone I emphasize what I do. I don't have what they have, and don't want it. The NHC is great at tracks, and bad at intensity and mediocre at timing.

The biggest problem is that the site has grown, and the noise level is higher. It just became more necessary to do it. Trust me, if you got the emails and calls I have with people crying over someones stray wishcashing post you would quickly realize why it is a bad idea to leave them on the front page. Especially when the namecalling starts.

We generally allow a lot to go through, but everyone seems to get short when a system like this approaches. I stand by what we do. We offer all sorts of ways to talk about what you describe in the other forums, but it is most definitely irresponsible to leave it as part of the main page when the topic is laid out.

Information is good, but only if it's factual. Wilma is the focus now, for good reason.

I can't make everyone happy. But for how much this costs me and my stupid insistence of keeping it pro bono, I'll go with what I've found to work.
