    That'd be useful but ML hasn't been on CFC in two weeks.

    Yeah, it has been a while (wow just a year) since this list was made. I've stopped visiting as much. Even when I found it, /r/news was slowly leaking into it but at this point, the mods are hesistant to enforce any amount of quality control in the comments. The articles are...decent, but they're less economics and more, I don't know, business? Financial?

    Things are expected to keep sucking because we're in an election season and mah basic income mah bernie sanders mah fed is evil rabble rabble rabble

    Because I would follow the link to a reactionary website. :rolleyes:

    Seriously: for those US viewers the Daily Mail is practically a nasty place. This will give you a run down.

    Pointing out that:
    1) The link isn't a news article, or even information provided by the Daily Mail itself. It's a link to a Greek ship-tracking software. Which is obvious from the URL
    2) The main goal of this thread is to provide resources, and occasionally discuss them if they've become outdated. Again, that was a bit tangential
    3) You're not exactly innocent of posting links to some pretty questionable sources yourself (and I'm pretty sure most people are aware of the Daily Mail's reputation), so cut him some slack

    1: oh... I was just... concerned.
    2: true, I just was concerned with the information.
    3: what links in question?

    Do you think you could organize them by topic, Tyo?

    I'm not a faceless, you're an evil faceless - You can see my face in my avatar, but I can't see your face.

    Also flash is objectively superior

    Less of a website and more of an analysis.
