    Where's the article rating feature gone?

    Just curious but why has the ability to rate an article disappeared? Has it been disabled because it was being abused?

    If scrapping live filters is controversial...

    why not lead the story with that?

    Instagram, does for photography what The Sun does for journalism!

    "Going forward"

    is a phrase which should trigger even the least sensitive bullshit detector.

    Instagram would be cooler

    if you didn't need an account.

    I got instragram ages ago and liked it, but I don't see the need of the social stuff, so I didn't bother using it for ages and now I can't even remember my username and password. Maybe I should just get hipstamatic or something.
