This is from a 1.0.6 user. I won't get to it until next week. Perhaps
the xhtml cleaner is messed up?
URL is http://venables-r.us/ and then "peter's ponderings" or something
like that. But, it is also happening on the salemsattic blog as well, so
probably it is a general problem to all LT users?

Here is the full text of my comment, which was somehow chopped off. Maybe you
can fix it? I thought maybe I'd messed up the html, but I tried it in my blog
and it works okay.
Hmmm, this is weirder and weirder, so I'm cc-ing Jon. I just checked further.
It looks all right when I POST it to my blog, but when I try to add it as a
comment, it cuts it off just as it does in your blog (right before the <a>
tag). However, when I EDIT the comment, it all comes through fine. (I do have
<a> as one of the allowed tags, by the way.)
As a writer, albeit just barely, I have to agree, mostly, with the point made
by Mark Moring in his <a
Today</i> commentary.</a> It's not nice to mess with an artist's work without
his consent. Not that there isn't a place for it -- for example, in my
experience choir directors are always making minor changes to anthems to suit
the circumstances of their own choirs. Editing out stuff that was probably put
in a movie just to jack up the rating would seem to be no more harmful than
that. Yet if the artist objects...we probably should respect that.<br /><br
/>So where does that leave us? In the highly frustrating position of having to
endure gratuitious whatever, or missing whatever is good in the other 98% of
the movie. (If the good is less than 98%, I don't usually bother with the
movie, anyway.) I don't know the answer. I do know that at my age (not having
small children in the house), I worry less about the things that Cleanflix
would have censored and more about more subtle damage, such as blatant
fiction passed off as history. Having seen, for example, <i>Amadeus</i> and
<i>Braveheart</i>, I have great difficulty cleansing from my brain false images
of Mozart and of Scottish history -- and most people who watch those movies
have no idea how distorted they are.
