I’ve been seeing this for a while now, so I’m starting to think the appropriate people (@beschizza?) might not be aware of it:

Long form articles (such as http://boingboing.net/2015/07/23/steve-jobs-insanely-great-2.html ) are concluding with an invitation to “Continue the discussion at bbs.boingboing.ne”. It seems to be a typo rather than being randomly cut off.

(I keep thinking I am being entreated by some kind of anime character, as in “bbs dot boingboing, ne?” Maybe it’s a feature?)



<h3 class="reply-title"> <a href="http://bbs.boingboing.net/t/steve-jobs-insanely-great/62335">Continue the discussion</a> at bbs.boingboing.net</h3>

So possibly a CSS issue, it is there in the text…


I opened up firebug and took a look.

The div that contains that piece of code has overflow set to hidden, a width of 45% and a max width of 728px, but the font size is 22px.

Basically, on this page the CSS is specifying a fixed size for that div, but expressing it in relative sizing terms with a bunch of limits, and the size of the font is too large to fit.


The Knight Who Say Net? There’s no such thing!
