5. I certainly agree it's the most important news
And I thank you for posting the big stories.

Again, my situation is not that I don't think it's important. But daily collections of top stories are available elsewhere, and people like you are posting the huge stories. (And lots more are getting posted and noticed nowadays, so that's very good!)

What I felt I had to contribute was thoroughness, if nothing else - I made it my mission to find every last tiny story on my assigned day.

I've tried for three weeks to do the same on a weekly basis, and it's a nightmare. It's not just the time (although that's a big part of it), it's the hundreds of tabs open and slowing down my old machine, the pages that hang up everything and cause me to have to start over, etc., etc.

I didn't intend to quit, and kept thinking that the next week would be the week I'd get more than halfway through, but, y'know, it's an awfully big investment of time for the 10-12 people who are interested enough to rec it. I can't help thinking there are uses to which that time could be put that would benefit more people. So there it is.
