Wow! I posted this thread, and SOMEBODY tampered with it. I wonder why?

The headline I posted was "The NEXT Donald Trump - - on steroids" SOMEBODY changed it. I wonder why?

I summarized the article as "Mr. Neumann ... has said he wants to become the world's first trillionaire and president of the world' " ... has said he wants to become the world's first trillionaire and president of the world' " But SOMEBODY changed it completely. I wonder why?

I added a short comment: "What hath God wrought?" That is entirely missing. I wonder why?

What's going on with this website??

Someone else posted the same story, but after you, with a headline and link that the site moderators/admin liked better. Since you were first, you got your name associated with it.

You're complaining that your biased headline was changed to something more neutral on promotion to the front page? Poor thing.

"SOMEBODY changed it. I wonder why?"

Probably to make it better, and less of a weird personal axe to grind.

,,, I view this guy Neumann as the next Donald Trump on steroids. That's what I wrote because that's how he impresses me. Argue. Or block it if you can't figure out how to argue. But please don't put my name on YOUR composition. Thanks.

I can't be the first one, can I? Has this been going on all along at this website? If so, how do we know who is saying what here?

"I can't be the first one, can I?"

You are not the first one.
I have had headlines I write toned down.
It's not really a big deal.

Dude it's not a big deal, you made it to the front page. Comment all you want below the fold. Rcade, the only moderator as far as I'm aware, has editorial standards.

Nimbleswitch: We sometimes revise a story when posting it to the front page. If a user doesn't want to be associated with the revised version we take their name off the post. The most common reason for making edits is that the user headline or summary doesn't match the content of the link. We have different standards for the acceptable level of editorializing on the back page vs. the front page.

Pretty incredible story of absolute failure resulting in obscene wealth. I honestly hadn't heard much about them until this past summer when there was IPO talk.

The Art of Failing Up, also known as being a Republican politician.

Uber can't be far behind. I also have my doubts about Tesla, but their customers are fanatically loyal, so I'll be careful not to step into that minefield. Self-driving cars are going to be reality in 10 years for 10 years running now...
