Misfiring on all cylinders...

Yes, we made a mistake, now corrected.
Clickbait. Really? Not misleading, not provocative, just the production deskhaving fun with form drumming up a headline about hybrid cloud computing atop an article about hybrid cloud computing.
This is not fertile territory for clickbait - now if we had Kim Kardashian in the headline...
That won't wash.
The phrase has not been removed.
Many of Lewis's articles were pre-modded. But you are on the money with everything else.
Telecity - error introduced at subbing stage - fixed.
Andrew does not do moderation
James1 thanks for the thoughts. It is a huge financial shock for his family. We have covered his funeral expenses and are considering how best to help his wife and daughter.
P.S our site has had a couple of outages in the last year.
That is a wilful misreading of the article. I suggest you read it again.
Capitalism certainly does not dictate that power is in your hands. A peculiar worldview, there.
You are asking us to stop being tech journalists. What a peculiar request.
It is very unusual for someone to withdraw all their comments. More usually people delete their accounts - and the comments are preserved under "anonymous coward" moniker. I recognise that this is looks broken but If all the comments are withdrawn and the account is preserved then what would the circumstances that a reader would come across an individual account history?
Pre-mod is now removed. But this is how it works. It is very simple.
You are not banned and never have been. But if you bandy childish digs at us we will put you on the naughty step - and monitor for a wee while.
Expert troll there.
The breaking shorter version is published first. A longer article may be published later. This does not mean duplicated content.
Of course we are copying Mashable, who wouldn't ...
Or maybe it is our very own ironic take on such matters.
Those feminazis sure do get everywhere, putting our boys down, angling for those top jobs and never mind those poor. fragile males they boot as they climb the corporate ladder.
What a depressing comment thread, you kicked off, BahBoh. First post/ first troll.
And to those who cry "clickbait", "politically correct", "goodbye El Reg" I have this to say:
What fucking planet do you live on. Grow up.
You are bending the definition of clickbait, ratfox.
Let the marketers have their day. Cisco is separating software / management from the underlying hardware. That's a big thing, no?
thanks for the heads-up, Peter. We are no longer supporting this Windows app.
OK smarty pants... story updated!
Diamond has a very large field. He is, in the jargon, a neo-environmental determinist and hiis books are as much about human geography as anthropology.
Slip of the brain concerning book, now corrected, Bumpy Cat.
Basic and chimp-like and missing the point by a country mile.
With breaking stories there is always tension between timeliness and analysis. It is common in such cases to do the story "straight" - and then loop back later with analysis - as we have done here:
There is always Acer...but will there always be an Acer?
The reference to the bank note case is in the same fricking sentence as the reference to Gamergate. You are the only person so far to refer to this case- unlike Gamergate.
Some weird logic leaps going on there.
Re the side note. What are you on about? We have mentioned Gamergate in 9 articles in total- two this year.
Bizarre mischaracterisation of gamergate, Anonymous Coward.
Metal rod inserted through the marrow of my broken shin bone. When bone healed, it was removed ibu surgeion who asked if I wanted to keep it as a memento. It is still mementing.
How on earth did you come to that conclusion?
In the jargon, if the acquisition is not considered material to earnings and the company is privately owned the buyer is not required to disclose the acquisition price. By extension, it does not need to disclose the writedown.
Julian - sorry that this is not working for you - but see Marco's answer above. Cloudflare helps us to mitigate ddos attacks and it reduces latency and very affordable prices. More than 1 million websites use Cloudflare - so this is going to be a problem for you whatever we do.
A quick look at moderation history by me. Accusing public figures of lying / dissembling will always prick up the moderators' ears.
Rejected comments do not equal censorship and never have. Go make that noise somewhere else.
On this specific bit of paranoia - One comment in this thread - someone being rude to another commenter - has been rejected, by me - at The Register since 1997.
And has no chance of becoming one. Ever.
So - anonymous coward. The last sentence was unnecessary. Be civil.
miaow - the sub-head of course does not mention the 10 years so is even less helpful than you think.
Let's parse this, Ilmarinen, shall we?
Tax avoidance is legal and is to be encouraged because governments are parasites. Readers who express outrage at tax avoidance are by inference stupid. Yes, where have the bright ones gone...
Yes I have heard someone say that.
That is so far off-beam, Stephen. that I don't know where to begin - so I won't, except to say that Andrew has been a prominent writer at The Register for 15 years, all the time that you have been reading us.
That is all.
