Live Updates: The Genocide Went Temporary and Science was Invoked 
Prisoner exchanges, aid delivery, some peace and quiet, burying the dead. Aka life in Gaza
[This mornings’ “Live” reporting from ABC News.]
Updated: This turned into an experiment. This intial part of it is retained. All intermediary articles have been deleted. The final intermediate version was updated with the results as the final article. Thanks for suffering the spam, the 25 of you. Sorry about that. I hope you enjoyed the journey as much as I did.
In solidarity with reporters at ABC News I figured I should also suffer a little during the Live Updates. They have to watch the wires. I’ll check in on them. We’ll see which coping strategies I am required to develop.
Let’s start with the details for the “pause”:
From the ABC News “Live Updates”.
To quote Napolitano “More as we get it.” Oldest first (i.e scroll down for newer).
Strike me pink, Israel’s IDF are attacking civilians, refugees of multiple wars, the target of a genocide while they shelter in a UN school. Count the number of war crimes committed in the one act! Perhaps there’s some ignoble competition for maximum number of heinous crimes in the one action? I dunno.
Whatever the case, don’t get all het up about the ceasefire being broken just as it begins. We have no datetime. Looks like a little present from the IDF before the festivities begin.
Substack decided to tell 25 more people than nobody about this little forray into Live Reporting.
Does this mean they disapprove of my solidarity with the ABC News Lasses and Laddies? Do they find my lack of humor distasteful? Are they controlled by Zionist bankers? Or is the algorithm they run on articles after submission to decide if their email notification system kicks in just not fit for purpose for a Live Updates style article? Who the f**k knows.
Oh shit! Wrong topic. Quick, replicate the article before update! Hit the panic button! Where’s the backup? Do you have charge in your mobile? What’s mum’s number?
A visit from Executive Editor has restored calm in the newsroom. The instruction is: you are scientists, behave like them.
Following the natural comment of "yeah, but you're saying the quiet bit out loud" a quick whip around for ideas was held. Based on the fact that we've seen this "Nope, no notification for you” shit before the consensus is to spam the crap out of whoever the unlucky 25 are and push this shit until it breaks. In so doing more may be learnt about the dumb-arse, not fit for purpose, automated notification gate which is getting in our way.
As of the last [COPY] when notification still did not happen, on top of a title and subtitle, but not including the 'copyright none' footer or the 'support links', we have:
unique URL targets: 2
And that is not enough to pass the notification gate.
This section of the article will be updated with the article to see if the scientists can scry some science from the recalcitrant email notification engine.
Stay tuned, both science and a pause in a genocide are happening!
Apologies in advance to the unlucky 25. We have no idea who you are or how the filter system selected you from the over 1300 on the subscription list. Thank you for supporting science!
