Hey, um...
is this the right place to mention that there is a problem with the Disqus comments on the results pages for the Giro? Every day I stumble upon comments from last year. My guess is that the URL is the being reused after the articles of 2016 have been moved to other URLs containing “2016”. Wouldn't it be possible to add a “2017” to the new articles to prevent this from happening?

Yes, this thread was set up to alert the CN website in the event that they make any errors, but I'm not entirely sure they read this anymore.

The problem you're talking about has been happening quite often, I'm not sure if they know about it or not but I'll try to pass this along to the folks at the website.

Cheers :)

Stage results pages don't have the year in the URL, so the comments include new ones for today's stage plus a bunch of old ones from last year.

That address has apparently not been in use for several years. I just use the usual address on my iPhone and get the mobile version of the site.

While Raimondas Rumsas is under investigation, so are another 5 people. Headline is misleading.
How is it misleading when it's the truth?
It implies that Raimondas is soley involved. A lot more to it than that.

Let's hear your headline, that would include everything that you thought it should say.

Personally I think you're nitpicking. Headlines are always written as attention grabbers, with the rest of the facts buried in the story. The headline in this case was truthful, and attention grabbing. Both of which make for a perfect headline. I don't think the author could have written any better of a headline considering what they had to work with. imo

I would've thought the team doctor and the Italian hospital are most at fault.

You want me to write headlines for CN? I will have to charge. :)

Thanks Susan. Looks like the redirect was still working until a few days back and it has expired. I have now updated the bookmark from m to www and all works fine.
